Thanks for the sunshade link. I use Butler creek scope covers on the Nikon and they work just fine.

Here is a pic of the 'rifle' so that you can see the scope and covers. Yeah, really that is why I have posted the pic. Really...NOOOOOOTTTTT.

The smiling gent is my hunting partner. He spotted it, I shot it at a massive distance of 94yds. But I could have nailed him if he was further out..... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Sweet.

I understand about the 94 yard thing. I ended up getting my deer this year at around 40 yards. I was very happy to end up with a deer but I would have liked it to be a little closer to 400. Oh well. Meats in the freezer.

Does anyone know, are these first or second focal plane reticles?

I forget which is which. I should remember this by now.

Whichever it is called, the reticle does NOT grow with the increasing magnification.

Maybe someday, I will be the one holding the animal instead of taking the pic [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

It was a nice buck and very fortunate to get it. Sometimes its better to be lucky then good.

The angle was such that I couldn't see the deer. Took a bit of fussing and moving around to get into position. That big guy decided that it was smart enough to stay hidden and didn't bolt.

Maybe he was too tired from playing with the does. Either case, gave me that extra few seconds to get him lined up and take the shot.

This was really one of those situations that only took a few seconds but felt like an eternity.
