Re: spotting scopes?
One of my huntin buddies showed up a few years back with a $1700 spotting scope, swaroski or however ya spell it. Now that was way higher priced than any I could ever afford, but it was well worth it. I sat out on a rock up on our summit checking out 40-50 caribou sunnin themselves about 1500 yards out, way down below me, too cool. No joke, I could count hairs I think. I only use binos, or crank up the leupolds; but if I ever considered a spotting scope, would have to have the wifey pissed at me at what I paid for it. Check out the high end scopes. My buddy got a deal from sportsmans, they lowered price by 400 bucks.
