    Son’s deer rifle: Scope Recommendations

    I really appreciate everyone’s opinions and advice. It has been 20 years since I last bought a scope, which was a Leupold 3-9x40. I went yesterday and looked at and through different scopes. Today, after much thought and reading, I purchased the Leupold VX-3i 3.5-10x50mm from Cabelas. It was...
