I'm finding myself hunting more western states these days, (Wyoming, New Mexico and Kansas), and I am looking to purchase a spotting scope. I plan to backpack hunt in the back country next season for elk.
I know it's easy to spend a small fortune but my budget for the scope is $1000+/-
I see a lot of people recommending the vortex (razor) on others sites. Is that a good choice?
How about Leupold? I'm not finding a lot of reviews on their spotting scopes.
Just starting my research so all input and advice is appreciated.
