Spotting Scope for whitetail

Need your help about spotting scope. What kind of spotting scope would you get between a Leupold green ring seq. 20x60x80mm and a bushnell elite compact 20x60x70mm. Are these good spotting scopes? Need these to spot whitetails at long distances and for the range as well. Thanks!

Last year for Xmas gift i got a Leupold 20x60x80. I used this spotting scope only for whitetail and it works great at low light. Pretty nice

Keep in mind the larger the front optics the more light it will gather in lowlight conditions. I would personally prefer the Leopold over the Bushnell. Good luck and shoot straight!

I need a crossbow recommendation, urgently. I was told this is good: and it's right within my buying comfort zone but I still need your advice.
