Hi & Welcome,
Target Tamers is made up of a very small group of outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, survivalists & optics mad tech-heads from around the globe.
My name is Simon Cuthbert and I am the owner & Chief Editor here at TargetTamers.com.
I got my start over 30 years ago as I grew up in a rural area and got an air rifle for my 10th birthday.
After honing my skills with that for several years I upgraded to a Ruger .22 semi-automatic rifle.
From there I have hunted with a .303, .308, shotguns and more. While I am not the best hunter out there, I feel I am qualified enough to help create, edit and publish the fantastic content on this website.
Primarily based in the United States & Australia we bring together years of experience to get you the most up to date information and guides that will take your outdoor experiences to the next level.
We don’t settle for average, we want to provide you, the reader, the highest quality information based on our experience and research.
The result is you getting the information you seek, in an easy to read and understand way that you enjoy.
Thank you for taking the time to visit, and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of reading and learning from our content as we got researching and writing it.
Simon Cuthbert - Outdoor Enthusiast (& Self-confessed Average Hunter)
Our Field Tester - Chris 'The Optics Nut'
Chris is a hunting enthusiast who lives in bear & elk country where hunting is a way of life and is very familiar with shooting various types of firearms at the range, has taken a Concealed Permit Class, and has family and friends who are in law enforcement and go hunting every year.
Chris has been studious about the techs and specs of hunting optics to better provide accurate and honest information for potential buyers, not just for work, but for personal enjoyment to feed a growing optics obsession.
Target Tamers – Helping you hit the target first time, every time.
If you are dedicated to perfecting your shot - be it at the shooting range or out on a hunt - you are in the right place.
Here at Target Tamers we are committed to researching cutting edge technology that can help maximize your potential in any situation where pinpoint accuracy is a must.
What determinant brings archers, hunters and marksmen together?
Distance. “How far away is it?” That’s a question that all of the above ask. Determining the accurate distance between you and your target could mean dinner on the table or hitting the bulls-eye.
With Target Tamers on your side, there’s no going back. Don’t stress again. Don’t guess again.
On our website you will find a variety of information from reviews to how-to’s and everything in between. Our goal is not only to help you make an informed decision about the particular piece of technology you are interested in, but also to provide you with the information and motivation you need to get the most out of it once the decision is made.
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 tips and how-to’s we hope you will:
- Better know how to make the most of the technology available to you
- Have an understanding of the terminology used by different companies
- Feel motivated to learn about the product you choose
- Know the benefits (and drawbacks) of using that product
In the interest of full disclosure, we would like to let you know that we have not personally owned and tested every product reviewed on this site (we can dream however!). Instead, we have used 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 keep and 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.
We have done our best to provide factual up to date information but it should be noted that all information presented here are our own opinions only. We are simply trying to give you the information you need to make the best decision for your circumstance.
All that is left for you to do now is…
Aim, range and shoot!
