My trip to Vermont for the 2011 rifle opener. Mix of shots including my Dad's 8 point, a family friend's 4 point, a nice 6 point, and other shot of my stand, the checkin tradition, and our family tradition of butchering and cooking the deer!
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...
