    Ha ah that's pretty good Umpqua, if I can see long distances even if I'm meat hunting I still like my scope. Many times I've scanned the area over and over with my binocs and saw nothing, then I crank up the spotting scope looking at all the hidey holes and find animals I would have never saw with just my binocs

    Always will, I like being able to get good close up looks on animals and make sure its one I want. I would rather carry the extra weight and be able to see game farther and clearer then not being able too

    I almost always pack mine. Unless I know I'm going on a quick look at a short distance, but even then it is worth taking. Where I hunt in the plains, a spotting scope is essential, just like hunting in the mountains. We are looking at animals from miles rather than yards so I'll never leave home without it... at least not on purpose.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
