Alaskan Bear Hunt with EOTech 2011

Steven K. Ledin,

My God was drunk and delirious and flailing when His Paintbrush spewed forth the colors and medium to make this part of our planet. Ketchikan (Kehi to the locals) was the first city in Alaska I'd ever landed in, and the terrain and scent of it is something I had always hoped I would experience sometime in my life. It didn't disapoint. I was with JB from EOTech, the inimitable predator hunter Byron South, and his camera man Sammy. If Byron is Cisco, Sammy is his Pancho. A good working pair.

We were in Alaska …

Outdoor Ignoramus, Remington R-25 with OPMOD MPO II, Alaska Preparation

Steven K. Ledin,

It takes all kinds of people to make a world, including dorks. I’m not proud to say that I still have plenty of points left on my dork card. I didn’t research my Alaska hunt well enough to realize that there will be a film crew there to film an episode for an EOTech-sponsored TV show, and that they would like me to use their products. Not a problem, really, they are superb optics, except I don’t have anything that will accept the G23 magnifier that I could shoot without losing an eye due to the short two inch …
