When I went out in the fall for a moose hunt, it was cold, foggy, and rainy all day every single day. It never let up. I had a good time, but it was pushing the limits of miserable. The thick, wet fog that lingers in the early morning sticks right to the front of the scope, making it hard to see. When it was time for me to have the gun and scope out, I was constantly wiping down the lens so I could see. Even in the morning when the scope was wrapped up it would still have a layer of fog / almost ice (due to constant rain and everything being saturated with water) making it impossible to see out of unless I wiped it down.
Most of the locals up here use iron sights, and now I see why. I'd like to keep the scope for obvious reasons, but is there a good way I can use both the scope and iron sights?
I've heard of two solutions-
1) clear mounts
2) raise scope up
From what I've read neither of these solutions seem great. Any thoughts?
