Tag in Colorado S73


My dad got REALLY lucky and drew S73 with only 3 + 0 weighted points! Among other things we're looking for is some recommendations on a really light spotting scope for not a lot of money, I think he's looking in the $150 price range.

Any advice would help,

I have been doing my research and as far as quality relatively cheap spotting scopes currently, the best scope I have tried out has been a Vortex Nomad. Its roughly 350-400, but likely your best option.

When you buy quality, you have the option of getting most of your dough back if you need to sell after the hunt.
Are you tax diversified?

You can get a TascoBushnell 3-9x40 for 55.00 from WM that will as well. So will a 20.00 Tasco from the gun show. Sheep dont know that you have a 20 dollar scope or a 1900.00 Niteforce. Congrats on the tag and good luck on your hunt. Dont forget to post the pics neighbor.
