    Maven C series vs Vortex Viper HD

    Looking at bumping up my $50 Amazon binos to the next tier I can justify paying. There's tons of reviews on the higher end Maven lines, but nothing on the Cs, let alone a comparo to the Viper HDs. Specifically, I'm looking at the 12x50s. I'd assume the Maven C3 glass may edge the Vipers, but...

The fact that it's an extra...

    Generalities of old vs young bucks?

    Been looking through the many "score my..." or "guess the score..." posts, trying to develop an eye for what is a mature buck vs a younger one. Unfortunately, no one posts pictures of anything under 170ish it seems. I'm not trying to be a pro field judge, nor am I trying to nail down the 180+...
