Wide FOV is the first spec. I look for. Movement when sitting in a stand needs to be kept to a minimum. Second is weight. If I am carrying a pack, a climbing stand and a rifle, I am concerned about weight. Third is low light capability as good as or slightly better than my scope. 

Always have liked the idea of integral lens caps.


Short, sweet and to the point. Great. Thanks for your input UR.

JG always seems to find some pretty nice deer.  I don't much believe in luck.

Yeah when history repeats itself multiple times, you gotta kinda rule out luck from the equation. JG has a bad habit of stumbling onto some reallly exceptional mulies, time and time again...damn his hide... so I'm gonna say he not only knows where to find them, but makes his own "luck" once he gets there! It's uncanny how much luckier one gets the harder they work!

I had no such luck on my south TX hunt. I saw a few deer and a couple "decent" bucks that I might have shot in my usual NE TX stomping grounds, but none met the standards of an above average mature buck for that region, so I passed on them. The weather didn't cooperate either, staying in the low 80's with high winds the whole time I was there.
