Texas is known for big bucks and long shots. Texas has a lot of big bucks because ranchers, hunting managers, and hardcore hunters agree that managing land for big bucks is best. In Texas hunters take a lot of long range shots because the country is big and open. Resting a gun on the windowsill of a box blind with sandbags is very common but at extreme yardages can be difficult.
KEVIN KNIGHTEN GOES TO TEXAS
Kevin Knighten, the co-host of Backwoods Life TV, recently hunted whitetails in Texas and decided to try the Final Rest Shooting System instead of relying on a sandbag and windowsill. “Where we were hunting, we could shoot over 500 yards so I didn’t want to rest my gun on a windowsill. I brought the Final Rest Shooting System with me,” Knighten said.
LONG RANGE SHOOTING
While hunting in Texas, Knighten was watching a buck that was hundreds of yards away and hoping the buck would stop and give him a shot. “At one point, I had a buck at 400 yards. I thought he was a shooter but I had to glass him to make sure. After checking him out and realizing that he was indeed a buck I could shoot, he stepped into the woods.”
KNIGHTEN MAKES A GREAT SHOT
Eventually the buck came back out at 250 yards and Knighten was able to make a great shot on the buck. My rifle was built for long range shooting and so was the Final Rest! I was confident I could make a great shot on the buck and I was able to drop the buck in his tracks.”
HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR EQUIPMENT
One thing every hunter needs if they are going to successfully make long range shots is confidence in their equipment and their shooting ability. “I first thought that the Final Rest Shooting System was going to be a great tool for my son, but the more I used it the more I realized it is a great tool for me as well,” Knighten explained. “The Final Rest is rock solid and is perfect for any gun hunter or crossbow hunter who wants more confidence in the field.”
PACKABLE EQUIPMENT IS A MUST
Many hunters refuse to use a shooting rest because they are cumbersome and hard to transport in the field. That is not the case with the Final Rest. The Final Rest can be easily packed into a backpack, takes up very little room in a deer blind, and it can be purchased with accessories that allow it to be used on an ATV, in a fiberglass blind such as a Redneck Blind, a homemade blind, or a portable tripod. The Final Rest is versatile, making it a great option for deer hunters and predator hunters.
