Have any of you.....

yote hunters ever considered how the old 'songdog' may spot you? As you're well aware they have better than excellent vision and from me watching lots of folks in their 'setups'....there's one thing that might make Mr Yotedog a little skittish! And that my friends is the OBJECTIVE LENS of your scopes. Whether it be a rifle scope or a spotting scope in bright sunlight or even on an overcast day....the objective lens of a scope shines like onto a 5 carat diamond in a Billygoats arse!!

Re: Have any of you.....

I have thought about this too, but I decided that since I usually set up with the sun at my back it probably wouldn't be an issue. Is there a good way to stop reflection from a scope besides buying an ARD?

Re: Have any of you.....

I think if you investigate a little....having the sun behind you won't eliminate the problem. When I drive down to my target mound I have my scope set up back at the 1000 yd line and if the right location is found by moving around just a tat.....I can look clearly through the scope with the naked eye! And I think possibly the coyotes eyes are somewhat better than ours. As for the ARD....don't know if there's an effective way to solve the problem other than covering the OL.

I'm sure that a dog-house blind, one you set up and crawl into and shoot from. That would solve it???

One of your wife's nylons stretched over the Objective end of the scope works well. It is invisible to your eye when looking through the scope.
