I'm finally going to take the plunge and get a high end spotting scope and get rid of my old Bushnell. I've never used a spotting scope much other than on the range. I started hunting the west about 5 years ago and am getting more and more into DIY trips. I've never really been on the type of hunt where a scope has been needed so I don't have a whole lot of experience using one for hunting purposes. Now that I'd like to get one and plan more and more hunts, should I go with a straight or angled model. I did a quick internet search and there is a lot of discussion on the topic but it seems like a Chevy vs. Ford discussion. A lot seems to go back to what a person first starts with and gets comfortable with. If I'm really just starting what do you backcountry western hunters recommend? Type of hunting will be typical western species.

Thanks!!!
