E117: Focusing On Success (feat. Erik Barber of Vortex Oprtics on Practical Glass, Binoculars For Whitetails, Spotting Scopes)

May 23, 2019

Sometimes things are just a little fuzzy for guys like us. Thats when it pays to have great friends like Erik Barber to clear things up for us! Erik is one of the friendliest guys your likely to meet in the woods and he is liable to have a big public land buck in the back of the truck. 

We met Erik a while back when he was at Midwest Whitetail and now he is getting after it at one of the most exciting companies in the industry, Vortex Optics! We wanted to get a real world spiel on the ins and outs of glass, and Erik delivered!
