Yes..... On a youth hunt with my son several years back. Across a field maybe 300 - 400 yards. Quite a thing to do with your son standing next to you. We dropped off the ridgetop into the woods out of sight.

I've seen guys get into the bad habit of using their rifle scopes in place of binoculars when checking out terrain or anything they want to view. This is a bad and dumb thing to do as sooner or later, as your experience as just shown, they will put that scope right on some other hunter or property, etc. Please don't use your scope for anything else but shooting at an appropriate target or game animal.

I ain't bragging but this is one of the reasons land ownership is great. I'd rather pay than play with idiots with a rifle.

I'm so glad we don't have to pay for leases around here. Here there are four classes of land. Public (either why bother/overhunted or a long drive to get to). Private land where you know the owner (pretty much free reign, no need to pay if you ask to hunt). Private land where you don't know the owner and it's not posted at all, no maintained fences if you wander from nearby properties, etc. And heavily posted private properties, where you may have a firearm pointed at you if you're caught.

Don't mean to be a jerk here but I would've walked up to him and cracked him in the head. There's more than enough risk factors for death in life and an ignorant hunter should not be one of them. Anyone who looks at another person through the scope of a loaded rifle needs to be adjusted big time!!!!!
