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