Hi guys, I've lurked enough. I'm hoping for some advice on a spotting scope primarily for sheep hunting. I'd prefer to stay well under $1k and obviously weight is a significant consideration. I'm currently looking at Bushnell Elite 15-45 X 60 and Nikon Spotter XL II 16-48 X 60. Any comments regarding the quality of this glass and the amount of magnfication I'll need would be appreciated.
PS I wasn't sure if this was a post for gear or hunting forum.
