I have done a fair amount of hunting in my lifetime (Alaska, Yukon, Africa), and I have always been interested in accurate rifles (I have owned Jarretts, etc.). I find these discussions on long range hunting interesting, although the vast majority of my hunting experience has resulted in shots probably less than 200 yards. I am making up a new rifle for a moose hunt, and I had a question about the rigs that are mentioned in many of these forums. Do the turrets on these Nightforce scopes, etc. get in the way when you're wacking your way through an alder patch or through the willows? It just seems to me that all the turrets and bipods and large scopes would constantly be getting hung up on crap while you're walking. I guess I an interested in the practicality of placing an 11 or 12 pound rifle in a saddle scabbard on a horse on a Yukon moose hunt and then sashaying through the willows for a moose. Any comments?
