    Vortex Viper HD 15x50 Binoculars - Sold

    this is decent glass, had a pair for years as backups or loaners, really nice to be able to set people up with their own glass when you take them out, especially kids. The Outdoorsman stud works in them, better than the Vortex system. Plus they are lighter than Swaro's if you are trying to cut weight.

    Help With Score Guess

    they call them burro bucks, not unusual in desert mule deer, have seen some good ones. As far as score, not important, would you shoot him or not, for me I would be more than happy to bring him home. Don't think it would hit 180 but pushing it, next year probably.

    Diesel Fuel in a Trickle Tank

    yes it was drained, cleaned and refilled, I know some of the folks that put in a lot of hours doing it, lots of conjecture whether it was another hunter on a close by waterhole or anti-hunters

    Scouting a new area

    a few times I came back to camp and water and trail mix was gone, not sure if other hunters did it or border jumpers. Have had them come into camp when I was breaking it down, gave them all the questionable food I was going to chuck when I got home. Told them good luck and run fast. Did glass up a few drug loads down there, point man and tailgunner with AK's. I always have a pistol on my side down there even tho I am packing a rifle. Bad shoot happens to good people all the time.

    Camo Needed fo new hunter

    camo isn't necessary, just good marketing, wear dark colored clothing until you find what you want

    Scouting a new area

    I always hunted on the N side of the mtns and stayed away from Ruby Road, were less people on Coronado back behind Arivaca. Big deer there, just spend the time behind the glass and you will find them. Haven't been there in a couple years, used to be a lot of border crossers, if I set up a camp I would leave water bottles and trail mix on the table, kept them from going through my stuff. Then I started just setting up a cot at the tailgate every night, load up in the morning and go hunt, just needed a flat spot for camp. Pick up some 7.5 minute maps of the area and study them in your living room, plan your scouts to make the most of the gas and time. Identify a couple good glassing spots, game water, etc before you go out.

    I saw a young bull like that in 5BN may last archery tag several years ago, stood 20 yds broadside and stared because he knew I had a cow tag. Would have taken him in a heartbeat even tho he was little then. Either he grew up or is out of the same bloodline.
