I hunt close quarters in steep hills and thick brush that has me on all 4's with the rifle strapped to my pack or stand. I like the reticle style for playing at the range (500 max) but will likely never use it in a hunting situation where most of my shots are within 75 yards. Having a turret that I can hang on a greenbrier vine and knock out of adjustment is definitely a deal breaker for me.
As Jmr40 said, I also do not believe the freedom line has the zero-lock feature. Some of them have the CDS feature without the zero lock. I believe the regular CDS has a zero stop, but does not have a lockable turret.

I have the Mark 3HD ,4-12x40 that has a zero stop without a lockable turret. The new Mark 3HD and VX3 HD line run from about $500 up to around $750. The VX 3HD line all come equipped with the CDS Zero Lock Feature
