I’m not the kind of person who usually buys accessories, but sometimes if I find something useful, I’ll give it a chance. I saw a Butler Creek scope cover on display once, and I couldn’t figure out why anyone would need to have a cover for their scope. It seemed like something that was pointless, but really it would turn out to be pretty useful. I hunt three times a month on the weekends, and in the last couple of weekends, I wasn’t able to hit any animals. It was like the animals knew that I was trying to get them.
I thought about it for a while, and it hit me that the scope on my rifle might have something to do with it. The rifle and my body are all decorated to blend in with the surroundings, but not the scope. The scope stands out like a sore thumb, making it possible for the animals to see me coming and avoid me before they can get hit. It seems like the animals get more intelligent every year, but this year they really have stepped up their chances of survival. Nature always finds a way to survive, but humans always find a way to outwit nature.
I purchased one of the scope covers and fitted onto my scope. The next time I went hunting, I was able to hit the animals without any problems. I hit so much with my rifle that I had to call one of my friends to bring their truck so that I could haul the rest of the meat back home. We carved up the meat and turned some in to ground meat. The rest of the meat was dried and turned into jerky that could be eaten later. No store bought jerky can compete with homemade jerky.
