Depending on your load, with a 100yd zero, 35moa should get you out to 1100-1200yds which is likely close to your max range for hunting.
Depending on your particular rifle, you might be OK with a 50moa scope, but I would probably bet against it. If you already have a flat base, simply mount the scope and sight it in at 100yds and see how much elevation you have left. Then you can either celebrate or get a tapered base or rings that give you some additional elevation. If you don't already have rings, I've heard good things about the rings with the inserts to gain adjustment.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
