hunter777, Yes you are right. Jessica has been on one elk hunt with me, last year. She is a trooper and did great staying up with us, over the down timber and 6" inches of snow. Her cousin shot his first bull elk on that hunt, we were slowly stalking in the trees and spotted him at 100 yards in his bed and thankfully the bull was looking away from us.
model88, We were outside of Buffalo, WY., just west of Gillette. I agree, hunting them is a blast.
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...
