The editorial staff of Petersen’s Hunting magazine has recognized the new ZEISS TERRA 3X 4-12×50 Riflescope for offering the highest quality, the most innovative design, and the best utility for today’s hunter. Petersen’s Hunting, published by InterMedia Outdoors, is one of the leading magazines for serious hunting enthusiasts in the United States.
“This is an incredible honor,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “Carl Zeiss Sport Optics has accomplished what no other premium optics manufacturer has ever done before: successfully launching a premium entry optics line that continues to win prestigious awards, and now this award from Petersen’s Hunting confirms that ZEISS is truly the leader in premium, high performance sports optics.”
For the past five years, the editors at Petersen’s Hunting have turned their gear love into the Editor’s Choice Awards. Best-in-class products that embody the ideal combination of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity, and value are given these awards. Hundreds of products are thoroughly tested by staff writers and editors in real-world conditions. Where scientific measures can be used for quantifiable results, they are. Where they can’t, years of hunting experience and practical field knowledge become the yardstick.
“Bottom line: We trust Zeiss,” said Petersen’s Hunting Executive Editor Ben O’Brien. “They continue to be at the forefront of the sports optics industry, and we have enjoyed many successful days afield thanks to their Terra, Conquest, and Victory lines. This year we were amazed at the precision of the affordable, yet high-quality Zeiss Terra riflescopes.”
