I don't ever use a spotting scope to spot, only to examine more closely on stuff that is a mile or more away. Sometimes I can pick up game trails, or spot water or beds that they might be moving towards or from that helps me plan a stalk. Also if I am after more than a meat animal, to see if it worth the stalk or not.

Like Pronghorn, at a mile with 8x binos, I can not accurately judge the rack. But at 45x or 60x I can tell which Buck I want. I watched a buck bed down about 15 years ago at 3 miles...met him at the water hole the next morning about 10 minutes before sunrise...could not have judged him, found the water, nor figure the land lay as well with binos.
Good Shooting, MarkCO
