using scope as observation tool hunting
This came up in another thread asking if the rules of "enough scope" have changed.
I suggested some folks believe a powerful scope is a good observation tool to sweep and scan with.
In my opinion,this results in pointing a rifle at targets that have not been identified.I have seen people glass my position in the field with a riflescope.I do not like having guns pointed at me.
I carry binoculars.I glass with binoculars till I find something to aim at.
One responder said he glasses with his scope,but the chamber is empty and the safety is on.
That sounds a lot like "Don't worry,its not loaded"
I had an old guy say that to me in the woods when I asked him to stop pointing his rifle at me as we had a conversation.
Hunting season is coming,lets talk about this.
