You need to, use your ingenuity, when it comes to reducing glare on your scope. Snipers including Special Forces Snipers have to make shift anti-glare device or ingenuity. you may have to shift your firing position, shield the scope, with your hand and, or use a make shift device with paper. This has been a common problem with many Optics and, Scopes in general. Complaining about this issue is easily fixed, with common sense. for the unaware it should be addressed. It is not a mechanical issue, it is caused by human error. **** IT UP, and use common sense!

Situation--Having a discussion with son-in-law while sighting in my Winchester Model 94 30-30. I think it's sighted at 100 yards but shooting at 50 yard target. It is consistently high by about 5 to 6...

He is right the bullet at most will be 1/2 high at 50yards. Zero at 100 if sighted correctly. The bullet is flat to about 100 yards and will drop significantly for the next 300 yards. At 400yards your drop is almost 7-8 inches and at longer than that the bullet loses most if its effective stopping power for hunting and the drop is really significant. Not worth the effort......

How To Use A Spotting Scope For Shooting

If you practice hunting and shooting, a spotting scope is one of the best instruments that you need to have to provide you with a clear view when you are aiming at your target. Before we get started on how to use a spotting scope for shooting, it is great if you know what exactly a spotting scope is.
Precisely, a spotting scope is a small device that is used for many outdoor activities to magnify and help you watch images and objects closely. Before purchasing the best spotting scope for shooting, you need to know a few things that will help you use it well in your shooting career. Here are some things that you need to know when using a spotting scope for shooting.

Comfortable Position Is Key
If you want to get the best performance from your spotting scope, ensure that you position yourself in a comfortable place. You know when you are using a spotting scope you will be holding it for long so it is very crucial to find a comfortable place that you can sit or lay down depending on what you find best. Make sure you find a comfortable place and learn more about the specifications of the area which should be the point of targeted area.

Attach Your Scope To A Tripod
Sometimes holding your scope with your hands can compromise the quality of images that you get because of shaking and fatigue. If you want to achieve a clear and accurate view, get a tripod and attach to your scope. This means that your scope will be very stable because there are minimal movements so you end up getting very accurate results. When you are using a tripod, the chances of missing your target are very minimal.

Adjusting The Magnification
You should also adjust the magnification of your spotting scope to a level that you like. Spotting scopes are designed differently so you need to know how to adjust magnification and the lens layout of your scope. For the most accurate results, it is great if you read the instruction given about the magnification levels and how to adjust.
In some spotting scopes, you need to use the lens knob so that you can zoom in and out of the magnification. In other scopes, you need to use the small zoom in and zoom round trigger on the point of the eyepiece.

View Target Area And Adjust Magnification
When you are using spotting scopes, it is not advisable to go with the magnification first because you might not get the right results. The best thing that you can do is to view the target area first and then adjust the magnification effectively.

Reset Focus In A New Area Always
This is very important because a sudden highly magnified glass can cause problems to your eyes. This means you can feel uneasy when you are watching your target longer. This results because of watching at a very high magnification glass for a prolonged period. You can overcome the problem by reducing the effect of the magnify glass on your eyes.

Beating The Sun
If you want to become a spotting scope pro, you must learn how to beat the sun. You need to know how to deal with the frustrating heat waves because they quickly distort your view and it becomes difficult to grass. The best way in which you can beat the sun is to zoom out. Zoom out to a lower power setting and you will enjoy heat-wave glassing hours. You should wait for passing cloud because they reduce the heat wave and give you the chance to zoom back in your target.

Final Words
Buying the best spotting scope for shooting is not enough. You also need to learn how to use it so that you can get clear and bright images all the time. This will help you gain accuracy when you are shooting so no more missed shots. If you learn these tips, you will not experience any problem when you are hunting or shooting. Knowing how to use your scope is the only way in which you will get most out of it when shooting. Best Spotting Scope to buy in 2017 Buying Guide Reviews

How to set up your trail cameras to get the best images of your game

Trail cameras are great for tracking game and giving you a leg up in your game hunting. But if the camera's aren't set up properly you will not be getting the images you want or be able to track the game you want. Here are just a few tips to be aware of when it comes to setting up your trail cameras.

It is recommended that you test your camera in the backyard to make sure that you are familiar with the equipment and its usage.

Once you have a grasp of how the system works you are ready to head out and set up. Start by setting up with camera between 10 and 15 feet from the target area at about waist height.

A few things to consider about where you set up the camera are the stout because you want to make sure that the tree wont move too much. Make sure that nothing is obstructing the camera's view because this may cause false triggers and obscure your image. If you can find somewhere that doesn't have a lot going on in the backdrop is the best, because too many limbs in the background can obscure the view of antlers.

When possible you should set up the cameras facing north to avoid getting sun glare. Stay away from areas that tend to get a lot of fog.

After the camera has been up for a few weeks you should have some good shots of the deer you are tracking and will have an idea for where your stand should go and when the deer are going to be there.

Happy hunting!

After getting scope on bullseye,what do they mean by,Zero setting of scale grip? my scope is a Nikon Bolt XR, for crossbows

you need to decide what distance you want bullseye to be. the arrow in flight is either rising or falling. if you get bullseyes at say 50 yards you will be low at 25 yards (arrow rising) and low at 75 yards (arrow falling). this is due to the scope is mounted higher than the arrow.

Hi whenever i try to take photos in the sun like on the beach they come out really dark please help

Please check the light settings and change from high sensitivity to even a manal mode or a bright sunlight setting.
It is possible that the incident light is too powerful and so changes the auto light sensor to give a correction to the CCD so as to make it less brighter.
You can also try and use filters that can reduce the glare but give a better picture contrast.
If not use the manual mode, correct the speed and aperture.

When you're choosing sunglasses, does UV protection matter?

Yes, ultraviolet (UV) eye protection matters. UV radiation from the sun can damage not only the skin of your eyelid but also the cornea, lens and other parts of the eye. UV exposure also contributes to the development of certain types of cataracts.
When you're choosing sunglasses, look for UV-protection details on product labels. Choose sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays. Skip sunglasses that are labeled "cosmetic" and those that don't offer details on UV protection. Opt for larger lenses rather than smaller lenses - or, better yet, the wraparound variety.

Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS, the display seems to wash out on sunny days so that it is unreadable. That's without direct sunlight on the unit. Can anything be done or adjusted?

The Magellan 4250 LCD display brightness settings does not do much. I can understand how annoying it is to have the sun's glare on the display making it unreadable. You can improvise a simple sun shade like i did, cut and fit a card board strip on top of your GPS unit to block out the sun glare. It's just simple and cheap solution.
