    What would be your strategy when archery elk hunting new units? Do you search all day or only during the mornings and evenings, hoping for a bugle?

    Thanks

    I lied...one more question...I've been searching for a good spotting scope, but really having a tough time finding one I can actually see thru. Eye relief is a big issue for me on spotting scopes (but not on rifle scopes, go figure?!) Any suggestions? I've tried Vortex and Leupolds...no luck.

    I usually do a lot of glassing during the prime times. Late morning and earlier in the evenings I bugle and try to get a reply. If its a new unit, I really try to do a lot of cruising checking out the country and looking for good areas that might be holding elk. -G

    Try using a straight instead of angles eye piece. I actually prefer the straight. The angled can be hard to get used to for some guys. Look into the Zeiss or the Swarovski if you can. If not, the Vortex and Nikon scopes are very good at a lower price point. -G

    What sportsman's shows will you be attending this spring? Any chance Eastman's will make an appearance at the Bighorn Sportsman's Show in Spokane next month?

    Sorry not me. I will be at the ISE show in Salt Lake next month, and then I am done for the year. After that, you will find me on a rive somewhere chucking a fly at a hungry brown trout somewhere. -G

    Try using a straight eyepiece instead of the angled. For some people, myself included the angled are tougher to use. -G

    Is Fred Trueblood coming to Spokane again this year? I go by and talk to him for a while every year! He is the one that originally signed me up for EHJ & EBJ a few years ago.
