Preparation Is Key To Success

In most areas of the country deer season is in or only a few days away and hunters are preparing for the season. While it's important to scout, plant food plots, hang your stand in the "sweet spot," get your camo ready and purchase your license, it's equally important to make sure your firearm is still punching close groups on the target.
You never know how your scope may have been bumped around during the off season.
If you have an iPhone, I suggest downloading Winchester Ammunition's Ballistics Calculator from iPhone Apps for free and taking it to the range with you.

If you don't have an iPhone, you can still take advantage of this fantastic tool on Winchester's Web site. Type in your coordinates for the day, print and take to the range.
The Web based calculator is live at
The iPhone version of Winchester’s Ballistics Calculator, which was just launched at the beginning of 2010, allows you to choose the type of ammunition and compare up to three different Winchester products with easy-to-read, high-tech ballistic charts and graphs. You can customize shooting conditions by entering wind speed and outside temperature, adjust zero marks for sighting in.

Here's an image that explains what I'm talking about:

Good luck to everyone this season, remember "safety first" and have fun!
