I've been absent for a while, having major repair work done. It looks as if I'll be healed from all that well enough to perhaps give hunting a go again this season.

For background, I have an extensively-reconstructed right shoulder (yes, I shoot right handed) and have also had serious work done to my cervical spine (neck) where I am now minus one disc and have two others herniated and waiting to blow. I've been out of big-game hunting for a bit but want to ease back into it.

I'll be starting out by hunting deer, antelope and an occasional cow elk. These will all be rather easy hunts, mostly on private property, with me helping to control nuisance trophy hunting involved. It will mostly be from a stand, road hunting or perhaps light hiking of a couple of miles or so. Ranges will be from 0 - 450 yards, with most shots taken 50 - 300 yards out. The rifle will be a 24" barreled, fairly heavy rig in either .260 Rem or 7mm-08. The combination of the mild cartridge and the longer, heavier barrel should help with recoil, which is my number one concern.

Since I want to keep equipment to a minimum, I have decided I really want to pursue one of the rangefinder/rifle scope rigs being offered by Burris, Bushnell and Nikon. As such, I'd like to know based on experience if anybody can recommend one over the others. I realize they aren't the purist's solution, but they make sense for me and they won't be lugged up hill & dale and over mountain durability should be good. It would be nice not to have to carry two pieces of equipment to do the same job, and I just don't need ultra-high low-light performance or high magnification.

Any thoughts? Any experience or recommendations to share? I've tried the search engine but couldn't turn up much. Thanks in advance.....
