After a week of wading and finding redfish and trout patrolling the shorelines, Capt. Nathan Beabout headed to the jetties, seeking bull reds.

“The fall months are coming up on us fast, marking the start of the bull run,” Beabout said. “We found a few spots where the current was moving and set up in about 30-feet of water.  We had plenty of hard-pulling fish and a lot of action with black drum.”

Beabout was still a little early for the bull reds.

“We only caught a few bull reds,” he said. “The black drum weighed in between 30-35 pounds, and the redfish measured 36-40 inches.”

The guide said the black drum are usually the first to show up in early September.

“As the month progresses and fall arrives, the bull reds will start to pile into the jetties and passes,” he said.

The LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise helps hunters shoot with confidence

There aren’t many second chances in hunting, so when the buck of a lifetime or a child’s first deer steps out, wouldn’t it be nice to have the rock-solid hold and confidence that comes with shooting from a bench rest? That’s exactly what the LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise delivers, thanks to its unique base system that works in virtually any blind or tree stand.

The LockedOn 360 is a full-featured gun vise and rest that is compact and built to travel. The multi-directional rotating vise is equipped with a receiver that slides easily onto the base’s sturdy rotational post. Because the base consists of just the post and mounting plates, it’s easy and efficient to use multiple bases with one LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise. Install a base in all your permanent blinds, or use the optional universal V bracket base with your favorite climbing or fixed-position tree stand. It is Mobile so you only need one vise for all your stands.

The unit’s padded vise securely holds any firearm for hands-free comfort while you wait for a buck to show. Lock knobs control horizontal and vertical movement of the vise, holding your gun in place, or allowing you to track your target smoothly no matter where it goes. Up, down, left or right, the LockedOn 360 rotates any direction while fully supporting your firearm.

Because the firearm is held steadily at all times, the LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise also absorbs recoil, a key component for boosting the confidence of young shooters and adding accuracy in the field. For hunting veterans, it also helps prevent the dreaded “Scope strike and eye-ring” associated with hard-kicking magnums.

As much as hunters focus on accessories and gear, there are few things that actually affect success. Deer sightings are worthless if you can’t make the shot, and nothing will improve your accuracy like the LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise.

LockedOn 360 Features:

  • Precision-machined for strength and durability
  • Smooth, quiet multi-directional rotation
  • Vise holds firearm securely at all times
  • Locking knobs hold gun in place when not in use
  • Reduces recoil
  • Boosts accuracy
  • Use one Mobile Gun Vise with any number of bases
  • Bracket to put your GoPro or Garmin to self-film
  • Optional universal bar-bracket mount for and tree stands with a railing

A better look at Texas and the world Nikon unboxes new MONARCH fieldscope

Looking at a mule deer in the mountains of West Texas, a distant pronghorn in the Texas Panhandle or a white-tailed buck from a Texas deer blind, a hunter needs to know the details of what he or she is seeing. The new MONARCH Fieldscopes from Nikon Sport Optics provide a first-rate optical system at an unrivaled price.

Designed with the needs of adventurous outdoorsmen and women in mind, MONARCH Fieldscopes offer a high-end optical experience together with ruggedness and ergonomics associated with the MONARCH name.

Several new and innovative technologies are what make the MONARCH Fieldscopes unique.

An Advanced Apochromat Optical System with ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass minimizes color fringing to the furthest degree across the entire light spectrum visible to the human eye. A multilayer coating is applied to all lens and prism surfaces, allowing maximum light transmission. The result will help Texas hunters decipher a buck’s antlers at 600 yards with precision, or spot the sticker points on a buck passing from sendero to sendero, where only the antlers are seen above the brush line.

Nikon’s new Field Flattener Lens System is built into the design of MONARCH Fieldscopes. Curvature of field is an aberration that occurs in optics when focusing on the center of the field of view, causing the periphery to go out of focus. The Field Flattener System resolves this viewing obstacle, providing consistent, edge-to-edge sharpness while compensating astigmatism and coma aberration at the same time. This technology enhances the edge-to-edge field-of-view at any magnification for any viewing distance.

The Optimized Focusing System, a new focusing technology, provides different focus speeds that allow the viewer to acquire and identify objects faster and easier than before. The focus ring of MONARCH Fieldscopes provides two focusing speeds for optimal operation: fine focus adjustment for distant subjects and coarser adjustment for nearby subjects.

Engineered with highly robust aluminum alloy, the incredibly rugged designs of MONARCH Fieldscopes are built to partake in any adventure.  Each model is waterproof, sealed with O-rings and packing seals. Also, they are all purged with nitrogen gas to prevent fog due to sudden temperature changes. A built-in sliding hood blocks harmful light to the optical system and protects the objective lens.

Customers will have the choices of 60mm or 82mm objective sizes and a straight or angled fieldscope body. MONARCH Fieldscopes come fully protected for life by Nikon’s No-Fault Repair/Replacement Policy.

Suggested retail prices:

MONARCH FIELDSCOPES MSRP
20-60×82 ED Straight Body $1599.95
20-60×82 ED Angled Body $1599.95
16-48×60 ED Straight Body $1399.95
