I searched the archives for discussions on fixed power scopes for bush type guns and didn't find too much.
 
Several people recommended the Leupold Scout but some didn't like it because it couldn't be focused.
 
I wouldn't mind paying up to or around $400.  I want a good scope with wide field of view.  I hunt a lot in thick bush and swampy areas so I use my Marlin .35 quite a bit.
 
Any suggestions?
 
Thanks.
 
Steve

  Hey Steve welcome to OT!
 
  If you'd be interested in  mounting a scope in the std position on your rifle this would be a VERY GOOD choice:
 
  The heavy duplex is GREAT for the type of area you hunt.

I believe this would be the base to mount a scout scope.  Burris makes one also and the Aimpoint 2moa red dots would also work for a scout set up.  Since the rifle ejects to the side rather than the top like a Winchester you can actually mount a traditional type scope so you have lots of options. In thick brush and fast shooting an illuminated optic with fairly low power is an advantage. My favorite is the Trijicon scopes.  Pay close attention to the eye relief distance on different models though.

Thanks for the replies.  I have looked at the ultralight scope before but not the two Bushnell or Trijicon. 
The Trijicon looks nice but for my brush gun that is more than I want to pay.  The Bushnell Elite is about as much as I would want to pay.
I have never used an Illuminated scope.  Do they help that much?
 
How much better is Bushnell's Elite compared to their Trophy?
 
How does The Leupold Ultralight compare to their VX line?  In other words would it be like their VX-1, 2, or 3?
 
Thanks for the help!
 
Steve

Bushnell Trophys are ok and they do have a nice big view but Ive noticed that in daytime there is a lot of glare on the lens that makes it hazy and distracting. Elites control glare and flare much better and are of course better in resoloution. If you want a fully multi coated scope with a heavier reticle then the Burris Fullfield II with a #4 reticle may be what you need for $190.00. They sell it on SWFA website. I am going to get one of these scopes sometime to try it out. Illumination is useful for night hunting such as hog hunting, but for legal hunting times on deer I think a heavy plex or #4 is plenty.
