I am writing to let you know how pleased and surprised I am with the accuracy of your Game Finder. I am a writer for a Wisconsin, Michigan outdoor publication called "Wishigam Outdoors". I have seen many gimmicks and gadgets come and go, but the success I had on an Ontario bear hunt with the help of your product, should keep your company in business and its customers happy for years!
To keep this short, I will start at the second to last day of our Ontario bear hunt. My expectations were high as the bait was trashed when my guide and I arrived at my bow stand. I was hunting with Allen Ward of Oskondaga Outfitters and I could tell he was pleased and he gave me the thumbs up sign while rebaiting. I climbed to my twelve-foot perch and waited for the four-hour hunt to begin. Al finished the baiting, waved and disappeared. The time went quickly and I thought tonight once again would be unsuccessful, when the snap of a twig gave me renewed hope. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted a large black bear going to the bait. Daylight fading, I knew I wold have to take the first good shot.
My prayers were answered when the big bear quartered away and stopped to look back. I came to full draw and sent the arrow on its way. The string tracker attached to the arrow fed out in what looked like a good hit. Suddenly the string tracker broke and the bear was swallowed up by the darkness of the coming night.
I called the guide on the two-way radio and explained the situation. Al was ready for the trailing job. With little blood and no string to follow after fiftly yards, he still seemed very confident. Reaching into his pack, he pulled out your BTG Game FInder.
He scanned the dense under brush like one would shine the beam of a flashlight. The red lights came on and went back off. He instructed us this was not our bear. It was a moving target, possibly a wolf, as again he would locate it and then it would disappear. Done playing for our benefit, Al went to work and cast the Game Finder in another direction. The red indicator lights came alive and stayed that way with every scan! Al said, "There's your bear" and we walked carefully up to the four hundred pound bruin that had expired under a windfall with a good double lung shot.
I am quite convinced we could have spent countless hours searching with a good chance of never finding my trophy if not for your product. Thanks so much for a great, easy to use product that should be in every hunter's arsenal.
