    Alway entertaining and enjoyable
    Thanks for the great content. If someone can’t find a subject they’re interested in I don’t want to know that person. LOL
  • hardwater newb
    1 magnification and only 1.
    Love the podcast lots of great information!! I mostly hunt mule deer and elk here on the east side of Oregon So i would go with 8x that is where i like to set my scope from 50-600 yards i have the viper pst with the FFP so i like the size of the recital right around there. Also with the first buck I shot, I was using an older 3x9 and at the time I didn’t know you could adjust the magnification.... so i was at 3x the buck was with a doe and I couldn’t see his antlers through my scope. I had to use my knockers to see which deer was the buck. It was a forky so they had similar sized bodies if it was it older buck probably could have been able to tell difference. Kept having to go back and forth between knocker and rifle took what seemed like 10 minutes until they both where standing still and i was able to see that the buck was lower on the hill and i was able to kill the buck. This was at 250 yards. The Buck didn’t make it 10 feet.

    Cartridge Request .45-70
    Ryan mentioned that his favorite Cartridge would probably be the .45-70. Would love to hear you guys talk about it!
  • SRerdley
    38-55 Winchester
    Love your shows! It’s time to do some shows on older cartridges such as 38-55 Winchester(under rated for deer), 45-70 Govt, and 44-40 Winchester. Thanks, Shane
  • CarRacer
    Vortex Nation!
    A great podcast that covers all of the topics I want to hear about that is delivered in an informative, funny, and entertaining way.
  • upsman4794
    Awesome show
    Awesome show guys. I wish you would do a ten minute talk on the 260 rem especially with rifle season coming up here in Maine
  • Zander record holder
    Great show
    I really enjoy when one or a group of you go off on what your passionate about like certain types of guns or ammunition and how it works. Speaking confidently about how something works wether it is DI or piston AR and ballistics on a style of ammo. Reminds me of "smarter everyday " on YouTube "Destin" works/ed for the DOD and is able to theorize how something works and that is fascinating to me. Ps check out his channel for some sweet shooting /suppressed sound barrier information
  • jemullett96
    Awesome Podcast!!
    Great info delivered in a good way with well timed humor! Awesome podcast!
  • Oilfield doc
    Best cast on podcast
    These guys have the best information and the best cast on a podcast anywhere
    Best “Hunting” technique talk podcast I’ve ever heard!
    This podcast has always been up there when it comes to quality of content but Vortex, in my opinion has produced the best hunting technique podcast that I have ever listed to regarding high mountain hunting. Episode 133 is ridiculously filled with content for high country hunting (mule deer, elk, bear...etc). Lampers and Warren share their hunting knowledge success and failure for hunting these high country animals. As well as their daily thriving techniques for mountain hunting. I high recommend this podcast for any hunter that heads into the mountains to hunt. Vortex really hit a grand slam on this podcast and the content is only getting better! 5stars all the way and two huge 👍🏻 👍🏻😃
  • R.J. M.J.

    Voila! Vortex: the Voice for Veterans!
    Everything about Vortex screams “America”. These guys have an unmitigated passion for hunting, shooting, camping, the military, and EVERYTHING optics. The podcast is enlightening, nay, illuminating. They produce a wealth of knowledge on a myriad of subjects, and every episode, I walk away with a new fact, or idea, or point of view. Keep up the great work, guys!
  • CW7222
    Magnifiers and red dots
    This was a very informative podcast. I’ve always been skeptical of magnifiers. They always seem gimmicky. Now I’m really interested in getting a new 3x for my next rifle. The info about how the 3x first make parallax worse was also interesting.
  • redhead hunter
    Best Optics, Best Podcast
    Who doesn’t want the best optics when it comes to target shooting or glassing up on an animal? This podcast is great, filled with so much information and a little humor here and there!
  • B-Seier
    Informative and entertaining.
    I really enjoy listening to this podcast every week. If you love the outdoors, I highly recommend it. The Vortex crew is extremely responsive through social media and will help answer many questions about hunting or shooting. Great products and great content!
  • James19841984
    Quick Podcast Review
    As an amateur in the podcast listening world, a trait I feel many share, I can tell you that if you’re a hunter, outdoorsman, or avid shooter, then there IS an episode for you. The inclusion of #10minutetalk is ideal for someone who takes their 10 or 15 minute work breaks alone to escape their day-to-day and get your mind back where you prefer it…in the outdoors.

    Vortex For the Win!
    I’m a huge fan of Vortex optics and the products they make. That led me to the podcast. It’s a super easy listen. Especially if you’re at home in your garage cleaning your guns or driving to the range. Tons of knowledge being passed out on multiple topics.
