When I counted up the hours spent afield last year, the ones that meant the most were in open country. I watched deer and made stalks on bucks that I spotted from up to two miles away. The optics made the difference. But, in some cases, they weren’t good enough.
I want to get all the clarity and light transmission possible when counting antler points in those last minutes of the evening. To that end, I checked out what’s new for hunters and shooters right now. I also scoured the 2015 SHOT Show to find the optics that will help you in your hours afield this season.
<h2>Bushnell|Elite 6500</h2>Bushnell took their <a href="http://bushnell.com/hunting/rifle-scopes/elite-tactical/lrs-2-5-16x-42mm-mil-dot" target="_blank">Elite</a> line to the next level with the 6500 series. My pick from the new offering would be the 2.5-16x scope with a 42mm objective. <p></p> I have always found the Elite scopes to offer a high level of clarity and light transmission. This scope looks even better thanks to Bushnell's ultra-wide-band lens coating treatment <p></p> <strong>MSRP: $1,068.95</strong>
