OUT­DOOR LIFE:

HOW DO YOU USE BINOS OR A SPOT­TING SCOPE TO AID YOUR SCOUT­ING?

Outdoor Life - - WATERFOWL INSIDER -

KEVIN ADDY: I al­ways use op­tics—it’s amaz­ing some­times what you pick up with a good pair of binoc­u­lars. You see low spots and high spots in a field. And you can fo­cus in on spe­cific spots the birds are af­ter. You need to mark those lo­ca­tions.

If you put up your binoc­u­lars and there’s a plas­tic bot­tle out there, and every bird is hit­ting near it, you know when you get out there you’re look­ing for that plas­tic bot­tle. Op­tics help you mark land­marks and help you judge dis­tance much bet­ter than the naked eye.
