I hate to be the bearer of bad news but a BDC reticle on a 5-20x44 scope is going to be a bit difficult to hunt with because the only power the BDC works at is the highest power.  As it gets dark you will have to turn the power ring down to about 6x or lower to brighten up the scope to its maximum brightness. If its just target use you should have no problem and the round circles seem to work nicely with round targets.

Welcome to optics Talk.
Check out the Nikon Monarch webpage for info on the reticle.
Also, I did a review on the 4-16x on the Members Review Forum here.
Hope this helps some.
