I have the same problem as you Dnk. The time I have to pack it in from not being able to see through the scope anymore theres still a good 30-40mins left before the bow has to be encased. Most of my stands arent located on field edges but a little further back in the bush. It sucks thinking well guess thats it for the night, climbing down getting to the field edge seeing that its actually still plenty light out.

The exact reason I will be switching back to my vertical this season.

Seeeee you guys!!!! Exocet and I don't hunt the woosie fields like you guys! LOL!
I agree that the compound is better to see with then too. I tell you though a good bright rifle scope makes all the difference at low light. I've passed up shots because I couldn't ID the animals sex.

I am just ribing ya don! If you remember when I first started talking about the v-zone with you guys I too had a story about plenty of light to see the truck but could not see the deer! Hey mike are you setting the main cross at twenty? or at ten? I have mine on twenty and the rest are right on! You won't be sad!!!

My midrange $ Leopold riflescope sucks up light better than the Vari Zone and might add some time to the day.Not making any changes to the Pheonix, but the benifits of the V Zone are the ranging and sure not the optics themselves.Don't get me wrong, V-Zone is great but sure doesn't have the glass of a VX3 or a Ziess. I would pay more for better optical qualities if they ever offered them.

Yup u be right on it, i don't get to hunt in the afternoons much. So the loss of those min.s is way life is! I used distain the peep on compound at dusk, twas very hard to see deer and those pins covered up it up when u did finally get on it.[][:-][&o]

Hey y'all i finished up sighting in my scope. Its there at 10, 20, 30 and 40 yds. I would have to move 3-Ddeer back into garden 10 yds. to have 50 to shoot at. I didn't feel that good, back hurting real bad today. [&o]So i don't think i have a clean 40 yrd. shot out of any of the 3 stands i have up. I am good at anything 40 yds. and under so i am very happy. 6 days and a wakeup deers will be in GRAVE danger, that i can and do assure u!

Moxie and I are so jealous. We can't hunt for another month. The deer will be shedding horn before we ever get in the woods. >>>>>Whack!
