5.5-22 NXS for all around hunting scope?

About to pull the trigger on either a 5.5-22 or 3.5-15 NXS. I'd probably go 22x if I knew how the field of view would be on closer shots if they're presented. I practice out to 1200yds on steel so I know I would prefer the 22x for the longer shots. I guess my question for the guys that hunt with the 22x is do you feel handicapped when that big buck jumps his bed at 20yds and you have to make a quick/close shot?

Thanks,

Brett

    Just bought the 22 with the Moar T reticle, will probably pick up a 15 when they come out with the Moar T also
