Re: Picking a budget scope
Vortex seem to be the talk of the town for the money and definitely low power with wide lense for stalking.
Them elusive PA White Tailed Deer become invisible when viewing through a scope in the woods. But it is nice to be prepared with power, when standing on woods edge looking into field and meadow.
2 to 7 but no more than 3 to 9 and as wide as possible.
But that'd be my two cents.
Good luck this season and shoot to kill.
