Default Fogging Scope Lens

Hey guys i find that my scope lens tends to fog up really easily on me so im just curious if there is anything i can do to the lens or the scope its self to stop the lens for fogging up so easily.

Treated lens wipes, you can get them almost any sporting goods store.

if i know that it is going to be cold the next morning i will leave my gun outside either in the garage or the vehicle so that when u go out to hunt the lens dont have to go through the temp change-causing the fogging

I was always taught the same as uncballers said. If it was going to be cold I'd leave the gun in the garage or in the car to avoid the temp. change. Always worked for me!

Mine never fogs up so I don't have that problem. Filling with blowing snow is another problem though.

I agree, I usually keep them outside if at all possible.
I've had pretty good luck with Bushnell's Elite scopes.
They are said to be "fog proof" and I have 3 of them and so far that's true.

They never fog up from warm to cold; they fog from cold to warm, so it doesn't actually do anything keeping a gun in the cold. There are wipes as said and different antifog sprays such as optometrists sale.

If fogging continues and you want to look at a new scope the bushnell elite 4200 or anything w/Rainguard. They work! -30, you can breath on it and it still won't fog. Here in the north you need a scope thats not going to fog when you breathe....... like was stated above though blowing snow is another problem altogether.

Pick up some butler creek flip up scope covers that should help, if on the outside of the lens. If on the inside send for warranty or new scope time!

Keeping your gun outside does nothing, especially if you live in colder climates and need some heat while travelling to your hunting spot...warm to cold has never caused a fog on an lens I have used!

I haven't tried any of the antifog products..never been a problem for me.
