Looking for advice from those of you who are knowledgable in this dept. The whole ?x?x? thing eludes me. I am looking for a good spotting scope and would appreciate good suggestions on magnification and brand for moose/bear/bou hunting. I'll be working with about a grand for $$ and would like something somewhat packable.
Last year my partner shot his bull 1/8 mile from where we parked our vehicle and I borrowed his Bushnell scope and took the 4 wheeler in 36 miles breaking trail only to get discouraged with his scope and use my binocs to spot the bull I took.
I've always used just Binocs for glassing but the time has come for me to invest in a GOOD scope. Any help would be appreciated and am not above buying used if that's what I need to do to get a good scope in my price range. I've been told you can get too much magnification and you just end up seeing heat waves and such.
Any help is appreciated.
