i, myself, question spending lots of $$ on glass but that is one a reason to do so. i think get the best you can afford. the last scope i bought was the pentax lightseeker with the 30mm tube. i think it was around $450 so heaven help me if it fogs up. i will say i have less expensive scopes and not had a problem with them but who wants to find one while a 14 point buck is standing there.

that is a great deer I can see why it made for such a great hunt. Congrats to you all.

Ronn I am the same about spending high dollars for scopes like Brandon it would be the buck of a lifetime to find out I should of spent more money.

Big buck, congrats to your group. Is that a throat cut I see, do you guys up north still do that as tradition? I like quality scopes. ronn, 450. is not small potatoes. How's that 30mm tube ? I don't one but have considered it. Next trip to Cabela's I've got to see the difference vs 1" tube.

Brandon that is a very good hunting story, and the pictures are great. You'll get that 14 pointer next year.
