For those of you that carry your spotting scope a lot what do you think is the highest practical power that you use it on? I have a couple of buddies that say above 30 is almost useless in most applications. I will admit that mine rarely leaves the truck. I do set up near the truck and glass but I don't hike in vey far with it. Thinking about getting something small and possibly fixed power so it is easier to carry. Since I carry 10 x 50 Swarovski binos I haven't carried a spotting scope much. I am not a true trophy hunter so I am not analyzing how high the B&C score would be. Just trying to decide if that deer a mile away is big enough for me to go after or if that dark spot under the tree is a buck or a log.
