#50 Darin Cooper


A few weeks ago, we sat down with Darin Cooper, former Rokslide editor, and one of the genius’ behind the cam and a half system from Hoyt.  Darin was lucky enough this year to draw a Bighorn Sheep tag in Idaho and walks us through his preparation for the hunt and the hunt itself, spending over 30+ days!  We also talked about the competition shooting he’s been doing lately and of course, his amazing dog.

#49 Maven


In May, we were invited to Lander, Wyoming to tour the Maven world headquarters to collaborate with a couple other people in the outdoor industry about a new rifle scope Maven is working on.  Our time in Lander was filled with campfires chats, drinking and of course, tons of smack talking along with some amazing meals at local restaurants. The Maven guys were great hosts and every minute was a blast!
