Hunting here in Vermont the hunter is most often in the woods, reducing the need for power optics,
most kill shots in Vermont are usually within the 100 yard range. A shot at 200+ yards is rare in Vermont.
However, I do use inexpensive Rifle scopes (Bushnel, Tasco, Simmons) for increased shooting accuracy,
I also have the same in Binoculars (Bushnel Tasco & Simmons)
A lot of hunters are getting into using trail cams more often now, so you might want to keep an eye on trail cam sales and accessories.
Good Luck to you.
