    What Scope...

    Is mounted on your go to rifles?

    The calber thread got me thinking about some of the other trusty things that you have to have to make your hunt happen. A scope is certainly one of them.

    So let's hear it, what do you have mounted on your favorite rifles and why?

    Leupold scopes on both rifles are the originals I bought in 1980 and 1983. They both work as good as the day they were bought. VX-II and VX-III I wouldn't have any other scopes. I have never seen the need to change what works.

    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    Sounds like Leupold has a pretty strong following here.
