Our Priority here is simple. Put more hunters in the woods. The recent decline in hunting numbers should scare anyone passionate about the sport. The numbers here in Rural Maine still hold strong, but State and Nationwide there slowly slipping away. A survey by the US Fish and Wildlife service shows today that less than 5% of Americans, 16 or older actually hunt. 50 years ago that number was doubled. It is also expected to decline over the next 10 years. Wildlife agencies and conservation groups are dependent of the revenue generated by hunters like us. Money from license sales, taxes from hunting equipment and other fees associated with hunting provide 60% of funding for wildlife conservation.
We need to do better at getting our kids passionate about the sport of hunting again. We need to teach them the joys of being outdoor, we need to instill the passion of hunting and fishing.
This Christmas, consider buying them a new gun instead of that newest video game.
With hundreds of online retailers to buy guns from, we make it simple and easy to purchase the gun you want. You search and find the gun you want, order it, pay for it and have it shipped here. You come in and fill out the form 4473 (NICS background check) they approve you, you take possession of the firearm. Lots of FFL's are now charging upwards of $30 for this simple job. I have seen $50 transfer fees.
Getting your rifle sighted in before opening morning is perhaps the biggest single issue we hunters face. Don't spend days in the pit guessing. We will zero your rifle at a pre determined range and provide you with the correct ballistics report on your rifle and ammo so you will be able to connect with that big buck this fall. This process is usually done with only 3 shots. One to put you on the paper. Using the best alignment tools available, your 2nd shot should be a bullseye. The 3rd shot is to confirm. Saving you money on ammo and no more shooting over or under that deer at 250yds. Your rifle is capable of making the shot if it is properly aligned and you understand how it shoots. We make it easy for you to understand.
Any optic purchased through Northwoods Arms will be mounted and bore sighted free of charge. If you just want to change your scope out with a new one you already have, We will mount and boresight it for $15.00. This includes checking base mounts for proper torque, loc-tite on all fasteners and lapping your rings if needed. Using the best optics alignment tools in the industry, we will level your reticle precisely with your rifle. No more canted crosshairs. Torque your rings to Mfg. Specs & bore sight your firearm to be on paper at 50yds.
