Do I need a spotting scope?

If I am at the range, I can check my bullet holes by walking up after I shoot. Not sure if I will be able to see holes in the paper past 200+ yards with my 10X scope. Just seems like I can save alot of money if I can aviod a spotting scope purchase.

But, if I am out hunting with my buddy, and take a long poke at a deer, wouldn't it be wise if he had a scope to tell me where my bullet hit? I don't think binoculars would be of much use past 300 yards. I guess I might have to find a hunting partner who has one! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Bang...hold up, ok, there it is!

    Yes, it would be worth the investment for a spotter or Bigeyes.
