Burris Oracle Rangefinding Bow Sight
Burris bow sights

The Oracle laser-rangefinding bow sight was designed for bow hunters who understand the importance of minimal movement and properly ranging targets when mere seconds and feet count. The Oracle eliminates aiming between pins by instantly calculating and displaying the exact aiming point for any distance and shot angle. A durable all-aluminum, water resistant housing ensures reliable performance in the field. The Oracle features a glassless sight window to prevent glare, fog or debris from blocking the target. Locking micro adjustment knobs allow for quick and precise tuning while preventing accidental tampering in the field. Second and third axis adjustments allow for extreme fine-tuning. BurrisOptics.com

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers
BackCountry Hunters & Anglers

Texas is widely known for its hunting culture and abundant game populations. However, in perhaps no other state is access to land for hunting so financially based and, therefore, financially limiting to the average person. Federal and state-owned land constitutes less than two percent of the state, with a mere fraction of this allotted to open access hunting. Moreover, it is among the states that have deviated furthest from the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.  The Texas chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is the voice of sportsmen and recreationists in Texas who value wild land and water that support healthy wildlife populations and their habitat, public access and opportunity to that land and water, and the concept of fair chase. BackcountryHunters.org
