Our team doesn’t settle for average, we want to provide you with the highest quality information based on our experience and research about sports optics of all kinds, from rifle scopes to rangefinders and everything in between.

It’s no secret that we’re a group of optics enthusiasts who love to write about all things outdoor and hunting-related.

Although reading about optics and hunting can be interesting, there’s nothing like watching someone demonstrate how to use a product and use it in the wild. If you’re a visual learner or someone who simply prefers watching videos instead of reading an article, we’d like to direct you to the Target Tamers YouTube channel

On this channel, you’ll find in-depth videos reviewing scopes, red dots, monoculars, and so much more! Every Target Tamers video is carefully filmed and edited to help you find the perfect optic for your adventures while helping optimize the way you use it. 

Our team of presenters are also optics enthusiasts who love to get their hands on rifle scopes, binoculars, rangefinders, sights, and various other kinds of optics. 

We hope you enjoy our field tests, and that our reviews provide you with the valuable information you need.

Our No AI Policy

Even though AI can be beneficial in content development, we’ve made the executive decision not to use it. All the content on our site is created and reviewed by a team of experts, and contains the authenticity and freshness that AI lacks. Every buying guide, product review, and how-to article is completely original. 

After reading our product reviews you will know:

  • Background about the particular brand
  • Features of the specific model
  • Answers to frequently asked questions about the model
  • What actual paying customers think about the product
  • How it compares to similar models in the range

After reading our informational guides we hope you will:

  • Better know how to make the most out of your sports optics
  • Have an understanding of the terminology used by different companies
  • Understand the mechanics of how different sports optics work
  • Learn how to care for your optics
  • Understand the various acronyms used within the optics industry

We have compiled this information using our combined and considerable knowledge in conjunction with thorough research to assess each individual product.

This has involved reviewing the company website and other authoritative websites as well as considering customer feedback and reviews. We have also phoned the companies when necessary to get the inside information and even checked out the products in person in stores.

You will also see Field Tests of various products published on our website. These are most often conducted by our own team but we do invite our readers (You!) to send in their own field tests. If you are interested in submitting a Field Test we recommend getting in touch first since we have some guidelines that need to be followed in order for your Field Test to be published.

Occasionally companies send us their products to Field Test. We do not receive financial compensation from the company, nor do we promise them a positive review. This means that when you see that a product has been supplied by a manufacturer for testing, you can trust that our team will always do a fair and honest overview of their product.
