I'd like to hear from someone who owns both the Zeiss (I own three) and the Minox and have them say that the Minox IS the equal of the Zeiss. I've read lots of people claim that the new Redfields are the equal of the VXI Leupolds as well, while being $50 less. What possible purpose would Leupold have in making a LESS expensive scope that's better than one of their own?? None, that's what. Of course, you all know that Leupold makes them both!
I have zero doubt it's a fine scope, but I'm not believing it's the equal of the very fine Zeiss Conquest. Sorry.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
