Let’s Go Hunt 064 – Cow Plow: Running and Gunning for Mediocre Scopes and Camels

Welcome back to another episode of Let’s Go Hunt! – the everyman’s hunting and outdoor podcast.. We aren’t experts, but we’re out there doing it. Join us on our journey!  As always we have:

Dave Packard, Davage

Mike Gonçalves, Not a good flyer

Vince Hall, whose brain is very squishy lately

And subject to the requirements of the majority party, I’m Sam Alexander, who also has a good joke to relate to you fine intellectual cannibals.

Tonight!!  Big game season is over.  Waterfowling is over.  What do we


  • Refitting the trailer: needs paint, wood and tires.  And spare relocation
  • Refitting the Prado:
    Need to build a new deck unit to store the trauma kit, ammo, chains and other little used stuff underneath
    Need to get a suspension upgrade to deal  with the increased weight
    Want to get a window tint, including a rear window mural
  • Various rifle projects to play with and get through in the off season.


  • Jack Out the Back
    • Run and Gun from down undah


  • Trying out a Vortex Diamondback 4-16×44
  • First impressions –  seems to be a decent middle of the road optic.
  • Pros and cons? Haven’t had enough time with it to really determine those.
  • It does fit the criteria for my hunting optic for this rifle:
    • Lightweight
    • Good magnification range
    • Front Focal Plane
    • Exposed turrets
    • Parallax adjustments
    • Not the size of two soda cans on the end of a broomstick
    • And that’s… that’s about it


  • I RO’d and ran the Winter Run’N’Gun at the Burial Mound Shooting Center in Pawnee Ok
    1. Decent shooting, bad decisions
      • Dryshod boots
    2. Getting settled and building positions
    3. Shooting improving
    4. Bad conditions, better clothing
      • ECWCS vs packable insulation
    5. Practice, physical  and mental preparations
  • Kids’ rifle is together, but still needs my chosen optic.
  • VDSM
