Electrical tape, put it over the muzzle and brake to keep snow/debris out.
I don't know the ranges on everything in that pic, there is a lot of terrain that can be glassed from here, miles of it and anything on the right is "go-after-able" but as much as 2 miles away. This is not where you shoot a raghorn or a cow because it's a lot of work to get it out. I'm going to give it one more try. I've got a muley tag in this district, and though there are not many of them, the ones that I have seen have great genetics- big wide racks. I haven't seen one yet and am getting a little disenchanted with the whole thing. All of the people who hunt the backcountry on horses have been saying the same thing- wolves, no game. F&G is going to feel the crunch since success rates are plummeting along with elk and deer populations. When people stop coming here to hunt and their funding goes away they will get proactive about things.
