TESTIMONIALS


I love your Rackulator, it's a great tool ! I highly recommend one! Thank you Ray Westphal 308-569-2328 - www.stuffncritterstaxidermy.com

"These days I seem to be running 100 miles per hour, so I'm very appreciative of any product that saves me time and makes me better at what I do. The "Rackulator" is just such a product. Breezing through mathematics with a 51% straight "D" average in school, means that any help in "figuring" is welcome; when I use the "Rackulator," there's no more addition and subtraction errors. Accuracy aside, the "Rackulator" also enables me to measure much more quickly and efficiently and that saves me time. It's actually fun to measure antlers again!" ~ Jim Shockey


DURING MY YEARS OF OUTFITTING IN TEXAS AND MEXICO WE HAVE TAKEN A LOT OF BIG GAME.  AFTER A LONG DAY HUNTING THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO DO IS SPEND AN HOUR WITH A FLEX TAPE AND CALCULATOR SCORING YOUR CLIENTS DEER.  FINDING OUT ABOUT THE RACKULATOR HAS CHANGED THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT SCORING DEER.  I CANT WAIT TO GET BACK TO CAMP AND GATHER THE GUY'S AROUND FOR A GUESSING GAME OF WHO CAN GET THE CLOSET ON ROUGH SCORE WITH JUST EYEING THE ANTLERS.  THEN WE PUT EVERYONE'S KNOWLEDGE TO THE TEST WITHIN LESS THAN 10 MINS WE HAVE A SCORE.  I WANT TO SAY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU AT THE RACKULATOR FOR MAKING ANTLER SCORING FUN.  THANKS FOR SUCH A GREAT INVENTION.

"The Rackulator rocks! Though I'm no trophy hunter per se, like many hardcore big game hunters across America I'm increasingly fascinated by the headbone on mature critters. The Rackulator makes it so simple to rough score antlers, even guitar players can do it." Ted Nugent

I've settled lots of camp discussions and inflated scoring claims since I started carrying the Rackulator in my hunting gear.  This small piece of equipment simply tells it like it is.

"The primary reason we measure deer antlers on our properties is to check the progress of our deer management program, so we can compare antler development from one year to the next within the same age classes.  The Rackulator makes the job quick, easy and fun, and eliminates adding errors.  My Rackulator is the most important tool I own to determine the progress of our management programs!"

THE ANSWER AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The measure of success in life is that of a man leaving this world having fulfilled his destiny. But, the standard at hunt camp comes down to inches by the eighth. Despite all of the subjectives of how everyone enjoyed being in the woods with his buddies: at the end of the day nothing makes a hunter happier than knowing big racks are coming home with him. 

Big buck- Western 4x4 or Eastern 8-point?  Points are great, but big bucks all boil down to inches- long, wide, thick- plus points. Every campfire has had its arguments as to how big one buck or another is. And unless you take it through the complicated calculating task with steel cable and tape measure, the argument is left unsettled. This same complication has also kept many racks hanging, unknown on garage walls, instead of being listed in the record book. Yet, happily for all hunters, those days no longer have to be; Rackulator is now here!

I was introduced to this self-calculating measuring tool just a few days after it was first offered to the public. This small hand-held unit appeared to be no more than an LED window and six buttons, with a steel tape measure tucked into the side, and a rubber wheel on the end.  Another gimmick of the technical age?  Who was to know at that point?  But, with the nightmare of horn and antler measurement possibly solved, I dove into the task of working out this mystery.

Field testing the Rackulator was a pleasure. Within moments of reading the instructions, I was able to quickly and accurately measure and calculate a total score on a large elk rack. Antelope and buffalo horns followed.  Mulie, Blacktail and Whitetail antlers were easily completed.  Typical and non-typical situations were tallied. All measurements were subsequently verified by the “official” steel cable and tape. Impressive, is to understate my findings. Not only was I able to complete like measurements much faster with the Rackulator, the final tally showed, if any, only negligible difference- at most one or two eighths-of-an-inch on the total score.

To operate the Rackulator you simply clear any previous measurements with two button pushes.  The screen then reads which measurement to begin with. Make the measurement, push a button, and the result is subtotaled.  You then move to the next measurement indicated, and so on. Spread and circumferences are measured with the tape, and automatically read on the screen when the tape is pushed back into the case, and they calculate with a button push.  Beam, and tine lengths are measured with the wheel, and those measurements calculate at the appropriate times. Any non-typical points calculate in turn.

You can view the spread, right side, or left side as subtotals. Your seven total-score choices can be viewed as Buckmaster Trophy Record, SCI Typical, SCI Non-typical, Gross Typical or Non-typical, Net Typical or Non-typical.

The Rackulator performed exceptionally well. Minimal effort was needed to learn to use the calculator. The measurements were easy and exacting, and precisely calculated.  The entire measuring process was much quicker than handling the cable and tape.

Whether you are at hunt camp sorting out notions of the days kill.  Settling a bet over a cold one, or just sitting at home during the winter calculating your Grandfather’s horn collection- Rackulator quickly turns the work into accurate fun. It is a master-measurer in a handy package.  

Hunters who find themselves hunting on leases or at operations where they are charged “by the inch” may also find the Rackulator to be a great money saver.  Three readers recently contacted me with a story regarding being overcharged at one of the high fence elk operations.  The ranch’s ‘master measurer’ over-inched these hunters by more than $8000 in stepped upgrades. Subsequent SCI measurers verified the rancher’s fraud. Having a Rackulator in hand could have halted the five-month legal nightmare before the field dressing chores were even finished.

Rackulator is a modestly priced, convenient, durable, easily operated tool for the hunter. It passed my field test with flying colors.  You have my word on it. ~ Frank Medicine Wolf Springer
