Re: What spotting scope?

Use to pack leo 12-40x60 ans straight 20 sometimes still. But I hunt with 10x bino and my Mark 4 rifle scope on 20 is all I need to confirm if it something I want to go after.

Same here. I switched over to a set of 12x binos, a carbon fiber tripod for longer glassing sessions and I use my 24x rifle scope for my spotter. Works out good for me.

when I choose to carry a spotter its a vortex that is in my pack. this is generally when I'm guiding and not carrying a rifle.

I love the 12x50 binoculars.
