Weather Binoculars

Wild turkey hunting takes place in the spring and in the fall for most states. This also means that the weather is unpredictable in most states. You don't know from day to day if you'll be heading out into the heat, the cold, the rain, or the snow. However, since most turkey hunting seasons are short, you need to get out there as much as you can, regardless of the weather. This means that you need to take special care in the way your dress for wild turkey hunting.

The outer layer of your hunting clothes should be comfortable, light, durable, and if at all possible, waterproof. Your outer layer should consist of boots, pants, a jacket or shirt, gloves, and a hat. Some people like to wear a face mask as well. The outer layer is your protection against the elements. Underneath these clothes you can layer for warmth. Since the temperature will rise from when you take your early morning spot to when you bring in your turkey, you will want the option to remove clothing.

All of your clothes, both the outer and inner layers should be made of camouflage material. Turkeys can not only see color, but have acute eyesight; camouflage is a must. At the same time, avoid wearing red, blue, or white. Not only will the turkeys see you, but these are the colors that other hunters associate with the head of a male turkey. A white sock or undershirt peaking out could lead to a horrible hunting accident.

Many people also like to wear a turkey hunting vest in addition to the above mentioned gear. These vests are camouflaged, have a padded back, and are full of convenient pockets specially designed to carry all your necessary turkey calls, as well as your car keys and cell phone.

When dressing for wild turkey hunting, first dress for the weather and then dress to hide from the turkeys.

Is it ok to take the binoculars out in extreme temperature?

I was wondering if it's safe to use binoculars in cold Alaskan weather. I tried looking at the care and instructions but it just says something like,

When taking out in extreme temps put them out in an unheated garage etc. so they can adjust to the temps. When bringing them back in take off the eye things and completely dry them out.

How extreme can binoculars stand without getting damaged? Because I wanted to take them out this winter, my winter has come already (there's snow on the ground now.)

The cold won't harm your binoculars. The trouble is bringing them indoors afterwards; condensation forms on the cold lenses, and depending on the seals can condense inside the instrument. A good way to prevent this is put the binoculars in a plastic bag prior to bringing them indoors, like a Ziplock bag, and let them warm them up this way. Water won't condense on the binoculars (the relative humidity in the bag is low as the cold air in it warms up.) Take them out of the plastic when they are warm. This works nicely for cameras, too. Astronomers usually leave their observatories unheated, but primarily to reduce turbulence improving the observation.
