Binoculars v. spotting scope for hunting?
Hi folks! I see some recommending scopes, while others advocate binoculars for hunting. Some of you might say "get both", but I don't want to carry to much gear on hunts and want to start by buying only one or the other (plus, don't have extra cash to spare). So, what are some things to consider when deciding on buying a spotting scope v. binoculars? I plan on hunting deer, elk, black bear in southwest. Distances I will be shooting might be from 50 to 300 yards; distances for spotting critters might be 500-1500 yards. Lots of hills and mountains around here, plus lots of deserts. Thanks for you help!
