Thread: 1/2 Real

    1/2 Real

    Yesterday, I'm swinging for the fences toward the end of my hunt, two fields out from the cellar hole, the ground was covered with leaves, it was windy, it was raining, and I wasn't wearing headphones
    The D2 (Deep HC stock, sens 95) heard the real real clear at 6in.
    Even with all that noise, the reason the deepies come through is because the D2 is otherwise completely silent.
    The four cuff buttons at bottom were all from the same shirt!
