I was kindly asked to join the rest of the Zeiss pro stalking team on a field trip to Germany to visit the Zeiss factory, it was aimed to give us a better understanding of what the make up of the bins and scopes & and get to know the rest of the team.
We arrived on the first day to a very warm welcome from the Zeiss team dropped our bags off and of course the odd beer sunk !!
We then had a walk around the local town which was overflowing with history shown to us by one of the Zeiss team,, Which was a nice start to get a feel for the place, Then yep more which i may add we all drunk like fish and not one of us had a hangover ?? fantastic beer..
Next day we spent the morning in the class room being shown the what's and hows off our kit and we managed to get a look at the new up and coming gear scopes bins ETC ETC and it was ... Fantastic... worth the wait boys trust me. Then a look around the factory which no photos where allowed but what a set up and what a privilege it was to see.
Then to the indoor cinema for driven Red stag and Boar which was alot of laughs for the whole team. Then after that you got it back out for a beer and food which i might add was fantastic and stalking stores till 1am.
Next day saw us finish off the class room bit on scopes, then onto the 300 meter range for a play with the new scopes, all shot very well as you would expect ... again lunch put on for us and then the good bys and back to the air port.
I had a fantastic trip meeting the rest of the team,I have seen them all on FS channel and read about them in Sporting Rifle ETC the odd one on the text and phone! and face to face everyone of them are out of the top braw no big headedness about them just down to earth guys and now all very good friends who I am looking forward to working with over the coming seasons.
A big thank you to Mark and John for looking after us all so well and the rest of the Zeiss team.
Thanks for reading
