Live Hunt: Zeroed for Bear

Live Hunt: Zeroed for Bear

The spring bear season is coming up here in Alaska and it's time to dial in my rifles. Here's how I get it done.

Thanks for the link kolbeck! That's even easier than scratching them out myself!

Thanks Montanagyrene! One thing that has stuck with me from my hunter safety class the better part of 20 years ago is the instructor telling us all about hunters who do just that and don't actually zero the scope!! For some reason that has always stuck in my head..and I didn't even know what bore sighting was at the time! I like burris scopes too...but I'd be willing to bet that Leupold hasn't failed you either!! :)

VERY GOOD article on mounting/sighting in a scope. I am SO happy to see the comment about bore sighting NOT being the same as sighting in your rifle!! Sometimes it’s right on the money, and sometimes it’s not even CLOSE! When I worked in a sports retail store, I lost count of the ‘hunters’ that came in on the night before Opening Day for me to bore sight their rifle. I KNEW that he/she wasn’t going to go check where it hit, and I REALLY wanted to slap them for being stupid, but refrained from doing so. I also have a Leupold on my .06, but I had a REAL hard time not buying a Burris (let The Discussion begin!!)
