CF2 and I are going Mule Deer hunting all next week in Utah. We are both using Leica Riflescopes. We will let you know what we think when we get back.

San Juan Elk ridge?  or is it private ground?  There are some nice bucks in those areas.  I seen several in the elk ridge area that were over 30 inches wide.

I love nice equipment and it doesn't get much better than this.

Regarding the new Leica scopes....I checked out the "4a" reticle and didn't care for it.  The post were too far apart....about twice the distance shown in all the leica photos.

The reticles are definitely "fine" across the board. I didn't like it at first but considering where we will be hunting I think I will prefer it. If I get in a situation where it's low light and I have to get on target quick I may be second guessing it. Hopefully if that happens the top shelf Leica optics will balance everything out.

Brady, what was your main decision in choosing the Leica over the other 100's of scopes you and CFII have access too.

In all seriousness I used a Leica scope on my trip and it enabled me to take a shot at over 350 yards on a Mule Deer within the last 10 minutes of Daylight. I don't think there are many scopes out there that would have enabled me to take the shot I had to take.

Brady used a 6.5 STW. I was using my 6.5/284 but neither of us had any issues.
