I can't in our deer woods by the time I pulled the rubber band off the white tail would be long gone I hunt in thick thick woods sometimes and they will be so close that I need to keep movement to a minimum. I 'll take a pic sometime and post what some of my terrain looks like . Do you know if NF offers some flip caps like that of the buttler creek ?

Cool Pic........

No, I don't think NF offers any but could be wrong. I grew up in Iowa hunting some pretty thick stuff so I know what you mean. But I preferred to let the deer come to me so I had time. I got a whole drawer full of butler creek caps. I don't care for them so I have been taking them off and tossing them in a drawer. I will see if I have some for a 56 NXS. If so make me a reasonable offer and they are yours.

Just let me know what you want for them and i'll buy them from you. Who knows maybe some of your monster Elk killing skills will rubb off on me

i would REALLY look at the tactical ones. They will last where the regular ones break if they open and get snagged. I have gone through two sets until I got the tactical ones.

You need 19EYE & 51OBJ
