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!!
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
