|Paul Blair||I would suggest the Nikon Pro-staff 3-9x40, I think is one of the most popular for your hunting.|

I have Vortex Optics Strike Eagle 1 6x Scope AR-BDC Reticle (MOA) SE-1624-1. |
This is a high end scope and it is very durable with 2 layers of glass on the reticle

Turner makes alot of sense....
The only thing that I noticed when I switched me Leopold 2.5x8 VXIII for a Leopold 1.5x5 VXIII was it was not as easy to group a real small cluster at 100 yards. I did like the larger field of view and additional eye relief. That was a hunting rifle and I loved the 1.5x5 on it.

Gee, lots of opinions here. I bought and used a lot of cheap scopes for years. I am now over that, done with that for any serious hunting rifles I now own. At the ranges you mention (under 100 yards should some who never bothered to take note) a quality scope in 1-4 or 2-7 will fill your bill the best. I think I know, owning about 35-40 big game rifles so topped. |
At the lowest end of quality lies the Nikon Prostaff 2-7x32; a fine scope and will make you smile 99% of the time. Better.... a 2-7x33 Leupold VX1 and also a 2-7x35 Burris FFII. I might know, I own them all.
Mt best recommendation.... do NOT get a 3-9x40 of any make or kind, you DO NOT NEED IT!! The lower powered scopes I mentioned are better choices (MORE FOV) and lower priced than are the higher powered quality scopes some mentioned.
My choice ...... a quality 1-4x20 for your needs, but I tire of listening to those who DO NOT OWN a QUALITY scope of that type. So, get a 2-7 of medium objective size AND of good quality and kill you some deer!!

|Rozman62||Given your short ranges I would recommend a fixed power scope. A 3 x 9 is too much glass for your application. Nikon scopes deliver the goods.|

|onehorse||Everyone like their brand of scope best, so I'll just that all mine are Leupolds. My main comment has more to do with power than make. At the ranges you are talking about, I agree with Hunting Man that you could save money by getting a fixed power (I'd suggest 4X or less) OR you could spend the same amount and upgrade to a "better" brand.|

Zeiss 3x9x40 scopes were onsale at Cabellas or Gander
It was either Cabellas or Gander that was selling the Zeiss 3x9x40 Conquests for 300.xx a couple of months ago. I didn't buy any at that price, and I now regret not getting atleast three.
