Welcome back to the Nordic Components Talking Lead Show episode: TLP 187 Night Hunting With The Beast Master. This week Lefty travels to the Austin Texas area to meet up with fellow Leadhead and friend of the show Nick Atkinson, owner of Beast Master Hunting. Nick introduces Lefty to predator and varmint hunting Texas style. With an overpopulation of predators like coyote, fox & bobcats and varmints like Feral Hogs, raccoon and rabbits eradication is not only encouraged, in many parts of Texas it’s rewarded.
With only 3 days to hunt the guys take a day to check equipment and gear. Lefty is using Nordic’s new NC-10 .308 equipped with a Trijicon Thermal optic, a SilencerCo Omega suppressor and shooting 175 grain .308 Gorilla Ammo. Nick is using Cobalt Kinetic’s Edge .223 equipped similarly however Nick is also equipped with a thermal and NVG headset to help with scanning. Other equipment used included a Para-plane, Night vision scanning equipment from a tundra pickup and Foxpro’s electronic caller the Shockwave.
Listen in as Nick and Lefty give you a play by play breakdown of each day’s hunt!
