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.
