Spotting Deer at Longe Range - Part 7

I use the Kowa 820 with 32X wide Angle lens. I can resolve a spike mule deer tine at 1350 yds. Some times I just move over to the left of the spotting scope and look for deer under the objectve lens.

I want to know how many birds you had fly into the lens on that thing. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Do you have to haul around a bucket and squeege for it.

I don't know BB , a guy with your computer skills could have easily made that Kowa look like it was bigger than deer [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Did you range them ? what? 60 yds or so ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

BTW , the antelope is marvelous , I have cooked it several ways at this point and all are winners .Did you get your summer sausage from the " butchers " in Salmon yet ?

later , Jim B.
