Thank you again to both BGH and Vanguard for my great prize! My Vanguard Endeavor 1045 Binoculars arrived while I was away in Georgia on a hog hunt (would have loved to have had them there to give a full report!). I've only had a few days to check them out, but I am already impressed with their low light performance with the limited testing I've done. Very nice Glasses.
Here's a picture of my new binoculars posing as part of a deer hunting rig I hope to use next season. Those great Vanguard Endeavors with a custom M98 in .257, a couple of loads to wring out and a custom deer antler handle knife I bought several years ago. I'm ready and so are those fine binoculars, best I can tell!
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
