I have a few rifles and most of them have their own scope. My favorite are Leupold scopes, in fact those are the only scopes I've ever bought and I have those on my regular use hunting rifles. I do have some older American made Weaver, Redfield, and Bausch & Lomb scopes that date from the 1950's through early 1970's respectively. But I didn't buy those, they're on rifles that were passed to me and one I bought from an individual. All of my rifle scopes were manufactured here in the USA. In fact that old Redfield scope was made right here in Denver. Actually the only optics I have that are imported are my Zeiss 10X40 binoculars, those say Made in Germany.....probably by Trukish immigrant workers
WH wrote, "those say Made in Germany.....probably by Trukish immigrant workers ." Yeah, nothing seems to be manufactured in the country of the business's origin anymore. Most goods sold are built elsewhere. Except China's goods that is.

Do you have some kind of mount system to be able to mount 3 scopes on 1 rifle? How would use them all? 1 for short range, 1 for medium range and 1 for long range; but it's a 30-30- no long range shooting with that round. LOL...I kidd
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
