Re: Picking A Scope

Idaho does not allow any electronic devices on scopes, so the illuminated may not be the best choice.

"In any hunt, including any-weapon seasons, it is
unlawful to pursue or kill big game animals:
With any electronic device attached to, or incorporated
on, the firearm or scope." http://www2.state.id.us/fishgame/com...03_7-14faq.pdf
Also, the maximum weight of the rifle with scope and sling can only be 16 pounds total, so the size of scope you get may be determined by what rifle you want to put it on.
