I do glass when creeping around, but I meant that I only rarely try to find a significant vantage point to glass elk, then decide how to close the distance. Most of the places I've hunted you'd have to go way out of your way to get a decent view.
I never really glass the thick stuff because the bino's I use are 12 power most of the time, and it seems that I would not get the visual of something moving on the sides that I am not glassing. Maybe I should reconsider and give it a try.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
