Follow German Precision Optics (GPO) in the “Hunting with Bob Series”



RICHMOND, Va. (Dec. 9,2020) — German Precision Optics has proudly partnered with Kimber Rifles and HSM ammunition in supporting The Hunting Wire’s new hunter recruitment series, “Hunting with Bob,” which tells the story of experienced hunters all across America introducing first-time hunters to the hunting sport. Kimber has kindly donated the use of a Model 85 rifle chambered in the underappreciated .257 Roberts – nicknamed “The Bob” by its fans. “Bob” is aptly paired with a GPO Passion 3-9×42 riflescope and all the hunters are equipped with GPO RANGETRACKER handheld rangefinders and Passion binoculars during their hunts.

For this series, hunting mentors from across the United States are paired with an individual that has never hunted before and is taught fundamental skills like hunter safety, how to sight in, animal identification and much more. “The Bob” and GPO optics travel to each destination across the country to introduce these new hunters to the joys of this American heritage and allow them the opportunity to experience the unprecedented comradery with a fellow hunter, the ability to take responsibility for one’s food and acknowledge true kinship with nature. The accounts of each new hunters’ experiences will be shared on the Hunting Wire. Be sure to follow at or Click Here.

“I purposely chose the .257 Roberts for its old-school appeal and mixed it with an ultra-modern rifle like Kimber’s 85 Hunter series. We then paired our hunters with GPO’s excellent optics. Kimber’s 85 Hunter is a super light gun in a mild cartridge that doesn’t recoil much so new hunters aren’t intimated, but still works well on most Norther American Game,” said James “Jay” Pinsky, editor, The Hunting Wire.

Pinsky continued, “We have had our first success with ‘The Bob.’ Jesse Scott, 10-years old of Monroe-County, WV took his first deer with freelance writer, Larry Case. ‘The Bob’ is now in Alabama with a seasoned hunter and another first-time hunter and is scheduled to travel to Texas, Montana, Wisconsin, and Virginia so far. The series is scheduled to debut later this month.

“As a young boy I was fortunate to have a brother get me into hunting, but many kids aren’t so lucky. Every company in our industry needs to step it up to protect our way of life,” said Mike Jensen GPO, USA’s owner and CEO.
