Welcome suggestions on transporting scoped rifles

Hi
Been hunting caribou seasonally by atv and in fall after freeze up with a snow machine. In each case i use a plastic toboggan or a wood sled. I also use a padded rifle case placed on the atv rack(rear or front rack) and or the sled.
I am having trouble ruining my scopes especially the ocular piece. Many times the ocular piece and tube threads get damaged. Any suggestions on what would be best to buy considering the way I transport my rifle? thank you

    They are big and heavy. But a Pelican case with properly cut foam will keep it safe and dry.

    These can be bolted to your ATV. I have used one for years and they can take a beating and keep on ticking.
