Thanks for the comments cuffs and raghorn ! :D as far as them getting mounted there parents would not mount them, but I european all of the kids' deer every year. My sister did mount Daniels first bull elk though.A great OTC bull that he may never beat especially seeing as he took it with a bow.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
