    I'm a HUGE NIkon "Prostaff" fan. Best scope out there for the $$. I am also a huge 50mm objective fan. ALL my big game rifles carry a 3-9X50, DNZ Game Reaper mounts get them down so close I have to sand flat spots on my lens covers on some guns to get the scope covers on. The light transmission in low light conditions is AMAZING with this scope. I was sitting in the woods THIS year, so dark I could not see down to the end of the trail, UNTIL I looked through my scope, then I could see every leaf perfectly. I'm headed to my later 50's, and a good quality 50mm Prostaff extends my shooting time considerably.

    In short: Nikon Prostaff 3-9X50 like this one, click on the pic and blow it up..you cant see light or hair under the 50mm bell.

    I have found, for the type of Hunting that I do, in a moderately wooded area my longest shots are about 75yards. 2X7x 33 or 35 is just perfect. Most of the time I have it set at 3 or 4 power.
    That has been all that I needed. It depends on the area and the animal you are hunting.

    I use steel tube Weaver K3 or K4's on my short rifles and carbines . I hunt close cover and don't feel the need for more power plus they look great . If you hunt bean fields or power lines you may want more power . Nikon and Burris both make nice scopes and I own and recommend both with no reservations . Just don't put a big ugly 50mm scope on it !

    Leupold for me.

    2-7x33 or 3-9x40 are what I have the most of.

    I only use Leupold Var-X III's, Meopta's and Zeiss and above with 44 to 50mm objective lens. Buy once cry once. Case in point. Yesterday morning I was sitting in one of my towers. Started seeing deer at 530am with my Meopta Binocs. At 625am I saw a lot bigger deer come out and I could see horns. I eased my rifle up and out and put the heavy duplex on his shoulder. The muzzle flash temporarily blinded me. Picking the binocs back up I saw a white belly down the lane. Note: none of this activity could I see with my naked eye. Since it was still dark I sat till about 7am and got down to see my deer. 184 lb. 8 pt.. Point is the small cheapie scopes won't cut it hunting during these early and late hours. Our shooting hours are 1 hour before sunrise to 1 hour after sunset.
