Where were you hunting at? I was in my unit (19) glassing some areas I am interested in hunting, and noticed quite a few hikers on the main trail making tons of noise and thinking they were probably ruining an archers or muzzys hunt. Good luck the rest of the week as you finish your season!
You need to find out when those kind of hunters will be back hunting and where they'll be hunting, so you can hunt the escape routes in front of them. If it were only that easy to know in advance. Just put the info to mind and use it in the future.
the night before our last day which was just a morning hunt some dudes pulled into the woods and fired about 5 or 6 hundered rounds and then hooted and hollered all night.we actually kept most of our composure except for one go the &^%$ home you $#$^@#$#@@# got yelled out,other than that we ignored them and waited for morning which provide no results.I really cannot expect to be surprised since we drove to our campsite which anyone with a 4x4 can do and being 30 or 40 miles from denver your bound to have some dipchits that dont even know a hunting season exists.
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...
