Flashlight Review – Olympia RG850

I’m a big fan of headlamps.  Hands-free, point-where-you-look and therefore better than handheld flashlights (for hunting applications at least) 9 times out of 10.  But there’s at least one very important hunting scenario where a flashlight wins, and that’s when you need to throw some serious light out over some serious distance.

A Biggun

We’ve hauled a few large hogs off Tejon Ranch over the years, “The General” taken down by Uncle Johnny was a real monster, but this was one of the bigger ones we’ve ever harvested. The real beauty if this boar was what a straight-forward opportunity he offered Chris.  He was uphill a scant 70 yards […]
