I am trying to locate an TC Encore stainless with composite stock for a reasonable price. Seems everyone wants $600-$700! How does the Omega compare, or is the Encore worth the price? All opinions are appreciated.
you get the same quality barrel as the encore and less money. I do own a black dimond. in a 50 cal. and it shoots as strait as my freinds. The new omega I think is a better gun because it gives you two inches of barrel without giving you a longer gun. they say that its giving you about three hundred fps. more. I am going to buy one next month and will give a report on how it shoots.
I just prefer the fit and feel of the Encore over the Omega. I was just at the sporting goods dealer yesterday and I'm thinking of getting the Encore shortly as well. I was also thinking of the new Savage II, but man that gun is very muzzel heavy!!
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
