    Best 12x50’s (Not Swarovski)

    I took the GPO and Mavens out for a few hours last night. Was impressed with them both. Could not tell much of a difference with brightness or color. Once the rain starts greening things up maybe then. The GPO feel great and it takes about 10 seconds after putting them on the tripod and they are right there. The Mavens take a little bet longer. Eye caps on the Mavens are a little to big for me but I have a big nose. The eye caps on the GPOs are awesome.

    I had no complaints with the Zeiss. I think they are the best bang for the buck in 15s. If they made a 12x50 or 56 I would more than likely still be glassing with Zeiss. Great binos

    Best 12x50’s (Not Swarovski)

    I got a pair of the Maven b4 12x56 and the GPO 12.5x50 this spring and am going to use them this hunting season to see what ones I am keeping. I had Zeiss 15x56 for the last several years also had 12x50 razors for a year. On backpack trips want to go with 12s. I am going after work Friday and glassing with the Mavens and GPOs till dark. It will be the first time I have had them on tripods side by side. I will let you know what I think.

    Backpack trip in Galiuros

    I have been wanting to make a backpack trip in the Galiuros for about 15 years and just have not been able to make it happen for one reason or another. A buddy and I made a plan in January if we didn't draw elk we would make a trip to powers garden and cabin the end of April. Figured this would be a good year with all the snow/rain for doing it that late. We are coming in from deer creek. Staying 1st night at powers garden, 2nd night at powers cabin, 3rd night back at powers garden. Was wondering if a side trip to hold out spring would be worth it? Or if any other side trips we should check out? Really looking forward to the trip. Chances are this will be the only time I will do it, just want to see as much cool stuff as I can in 4 days. Can PM me if more comfortable with that. Thanks
