I spotted these two and had to take a picture with my phone looking through the eyepiece of my spotting scope.

Yes, most definitely two shooters.   Good luck with them.

Looking good Ben - I can never seem to make it work shooting a photo through the scope like that, do you have a mount for your phone or just holding it by hand to the eyepiece?  Looking forward to a picture this fall with you next to one of those dudes (getting tired of all the pig pix!)  --099-780

Yari - A good mature buck out here will be 175 - 225 lbs.

Mad - I hold it by hand to the eyepiece.  It takes a lot of steadiness and it has to be lined up just perfect including the depth from the phone to eyepiece.  I'm tired of posting pig pics, it means I still have pigs!   --099-780  We chased 8 Saturday morning.  We got within 100 yards and could see them with the binos, but not enough light for the scope.  They moved into the woods before it got light enough.  I told my farmer, he told me to come and get his thermal imaging scope mounted on his AR-15 anytime.  He said he would bring to the house if I am killing pigs...lol.
