Choosing the right glass for backcountry hunting -

Thanks, Josh. Great article, and great inside info. I agree with your opinion and just bought a pair of $200 10x42 HD Vortex Diamonbacks to replace my 10 year old Bushnell's. Can't wait to test them and look through "newer" glass and HD quality. I'm Interested to see how much bang for the buck you get these days compared to 10 years ago.
Have a great day, and always have a great season!
2020 Western Big Game Hunting Application Deadlines -

@Shan, for sure, calendar reminders are always a great idea also, as long as the date doesn't change dramatically ;)
@Brady, no worries man, whenever you get time. Thanks for such quick replies so far! Enjoy the podcast!
...and I forgot to mention a very important point, I was only interested in open/end date for preference/bonus points for Archery Elk.
Brady, thanks so much for all the info man. I personally love to see when I can apply, but if it's almost always 30 days prior to the closing deadline then no need for me. I just didn't even see CO or AZ listed on the Bonus/Preference Point Only Deadlines so that's what sparked this conversation for me.
I think I'll build a spreadsheet for further reference of the states I'm interested in, when the start/end deadline for Preference points is, and when the start/end deadline for application is. That might be the easiest way for me to see it all laid out.
This is my first year applying for points as I'm usually just an OTC Non-Res hunter, but the increase in public land hunting pressure has created the appeal of certain areas and has me re-thinking just hunting OTC only.
Thanks again Brady!
I second what Shan said. I'm not able to apply for AZ bonus points yet, even when I have purchased the NR Hunting License. When does AZ give you the option?
