Finally getting that elk tag!

From the video maker:

“After 11 years of waiting to draw this muzzleloader elk tag, Chris quickly began scouting with his hunting buddies to put in the work this tag deserved. With several good bulls on the trail camera, opening morning couldn’t come quick enough. The first day was full of close encounters only to have the second day go silent after the elk were pushed further down. Join Chris as he looks to shoot a big old bull on his hunt!”

Ruger Introduces Hawkeye FTW Hunter Models

Ruger Hawkeye FTW Hunter

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the addition of the Ruger® Hawkeye® FTW Hunter to its line of Hawkeye bolt-action rifles. This new rifle was designed by working closely with the instructors of the Sportsman’s All-Weather, All-Terrain Marksmanship (SAAM) school at the highly regarded FTW Ranch in Barksdale, TX.

The Hawkeye FTW Hunter features a Natural Gear Camo, laminated wood stock and a stainless steel, cold hammer-forged barrel for exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning. The hinged, solid steel floor plate is engraved with the FTW Logo and allows for easy unloading of the rifle without the need to chamber each cartridge. Offered in seven calibers, including three left-handed options, the Hawkeye FTW Hunter is sure to be a popular choice among hunting enthusiasts.

Each rifle comes with the Ruger® Muzzle Brake System, which includes a removable, radial-port muzzle brake that significantly reduces felt recoil. For times when the brake is not preferred, it may be replaced by the included dynamically-matched muzzle weight. Switching between the brake and the weight will not change the bullet’s point of impact for a particular load. The included thread protector may be used if neither the brake nor the weight is desired.

The Hawkeye FTW Hunter also includes the LC6™ trigger, which offers smooth, crisp performance right out of the box and increased accuracy on the range or in the field; a non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor, which is the most positive case extraction system ever invented; a three-position safety for easy activation that allows the shooter to lock the bolt or load and unload the rifle with the safety engaged; and an adjustable length of pull spacers and patented integral Ruger scope mount cuts into the receiver.
