Oregon Helps Tag Missouri Deer


As you might imagine, one of the fringe benefits of working at Garmin is the ability to "field test" our products in any number of outdoor activities.  Last weekend marked the opening of the Missouri deer season, and Bryan, one of our outdoor/rec sales and marketing gurus got a chance to put the Oregon 400T through its paces.  Here’s his report:

024012The quest for venison took place in Texas County, Missouri near the town of Mountain View.  Beautiful rolling hills.  Most of the leaves off the trees.  Cold, wet morning with 15 mph winds, 31 degrees.  Oregon color touch screen worked flawlessly in the cold with me wearing heavy winter gloves.   Deer came down a narrow draw from slight clearing above the stand.  Whitetail deer – 70 yd shot shot with my 1973 Winchester model 70 – .270.  3D view helped finding areas where the deer would feed in from during the morning hours.  Hunting calculator indicated when game would be most active.  Preloaded topo map helped with terrain in the Ozark landscape.  I also was able to mark my truck so I wouldn’t get lost in the Ozark backcountry.  Oregon field test and hunting trip were both a success!
