Over on Leupold’s Facebook page, they posted images of one of their 2-7x scopes that was lost in the Idaho Wilderness for 11 years. Still fog-free and functional, more photos and Leupold’s description follows . . .
11 Years of Surviving the Idaho Wilderness:
This Weatherby Mark V was found in Idaho at 4,000 feet of elevation. It was brought into a sporting goods store where it was later identified by the owner as the rifle he’d lost on a hunting trip 11 years earlier. The Leupold 2-7 scope is still fog-free and fully functional.
