    I think you can defintely use the Monarch 8-32x50 Finecross hair to hunt Stag. Is it the best choice, probably not, but sometimes we get a great deal on and item and make the most of it. I think for the distances you are talking about, you might like Nikon's BDC Reticle. This will allow you to use Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program and fine tune your reticle to your cal. and ammo. Will help make those long range shots more accurate.
    Don't get me wrong, the glass on that 8-32x50 is outstanding. I have not had one on a rifle yet bt I have looked thru one and I was impressed.
