Re: Glassing seat?

There are a number of foam cushion seats available for this purpose. Most stores like
a bass pro or cabellas would offer them. My biggest concern would be the actual
glassing. If youve not experienced any long glassing sessions i strongly suggest you
practice doing so before the trip. Even with closer distances than you will encounter
you will establish some important things. First off you will need either a tripod or
a shooting/walking stick that will support your glasses. Without it you will become arm weary within a very short period. From that point your simply using your eyes to hunt with. Test yourself by seeing how long you can comfortably hold your glasses up to your eyes and you will see what im talking about. The higher the power of the glasses the more you will need a support for them. As a general rule anything over
about 8x or 10x at most will require a support for good use and especially extended use.
