Cranston, Rhode Island - SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA, a subsidiary of the Austrian-based company, is pleased to announce Episode 2 of its Season 4 show SWAROVSKI OPTIK Quests: With the Eyes of a Hawk. In this episode, high-quality long-range optics are showcased on a hunt for Rocky Mountain Elk, one of the largest herbivores in North America.
Just 60 miles north of Los Angeles, the second most populous city in the United States, lies some of the finest elk hunting in North America. SWAROVSKI OPTIK Quests host Dean Capuano is taking Kristy Titus, editor for Western Hunter andElk Hunter magazines, to a wapiti hot spot known as Tejon Ranch. Sitting on over a quarter-million acres of private wild ground, Tejon Ranch is the largest continuous expanse of private land in California and a great location to demonstrate the success of using top-of-the-line SWAROVSKI OPTIK glass.
Kristy Titus said, "The Tejon Ranch has 90% of the 280,000 acre ranch permanently conserved for elk and other wildlife, leading the way for conservation in not only the state of California but across the nation. They are demonstrating that their combination of sound ranching, farming and carefully managed hunting practices has created a thriving environment for the wildlife that calls the Tejon Ranch home and are currently holding some of the oldest and largest free range Rocky Mountain Elk in the United States."
"This hunt at the Tejon ranch is really something special," said Dean Capuano. "To be able to have just a short drive from the city of Los Angeles and be in such a beautiful pristine place is surreal. The elk herd they have at the ranch is nothing short of amazing. "
