most stalkers say that you should buy the best scope that you can buy ? £1,000 £2,000 but when you take that shot and the deer runs what does your scope do then? it is a fact that most deer shot at are hit, so the next best thing is a dog but which one? I had a friend from Belgium that is a ranger shot a Sika 5 of us looked at the shot site and could not see a thing my dog was very slow smelling but did her turn and walked into a block of wood, the ranger said yes that is the way the deer went I was pleased that my dog was alot slower than normal going into the block of wood for those that have shot in Scotland will know what I mean, after 60 mtr my dog did her impression of a wolf which was the point of finding the gut shot deer that had turned his gut leaving very little scent, this dog was a bavarian, so which is the best a sight or a dog? or is it best to have both if you shoot alot.
