This is my first year hunting as a resident. Where I come from in PA we don't use spotting optics. Heck, half the shots at whitetails are in a thicket at 30 yards. Here it is much much different. Anyway, I am picking up a spotting scope and I am just not sure which one. I never really used or had a need for them I thought so I would get some of your opinions.
I am going to be hunting bear, bou, moose etc. I have no idea what optics to get. I know I want something that fits in my pack easily, is light and clear. The prices run from hundreds to thousands. What would be a good scope for hunting up here?
I don't want to go more than $800.00 which from what I have seen should get me a good scope.
