Before I go any futher this thread does not mean for whatever reason you may think I believe in this, but from time to time it may be necessary....
Ok most of us have permission in forestry leases. As norm for any forestry lease cull targets have to be met and tree damage to an absolute minimum. If not the lease may be in jepordy or worse some forestry companies may send a contracter or similar.
Now your lease has lets say for arguments sake an area which has been clear felled and the re-plant is 3 years old. Now if your like me you will have high seats in places to cover the area. Then 1 day a beast presents itself around 300yds away give or take. Now youve a decision to make shoot if safe or attempt to climb down and attempt to stalk in and risk alerting the beast due to lack of cover and wind.
Only 1 option.. The shot has to be taken, ok calibre choice is good, youve made a good choice from your cabinet.
Now scope 6x42, 7x50 etc etc Normally you wouldnt think twice at normal stalking distances up to say 150 yds in forestry etc.
But the question which choice of mag would you prefer in that situation? E.g. a 14x or larger??
Have fun discusing this
