Angled vs. Straight Spotting Scopes

Jay | @shoveltailHunting

Spotting scopes are an important part of your optical system for field judging game you’ve already located and looking into deep cover for bedded animals. Scopes come in two different configurations, either with a straight or an angled eyepiece. Which is right for you is a very personal choice. Hunters get used to a certain style, and tend to stick with it. And like the Hoyt vs. Mathews, or Chevy vs. Ford debate, tend to defend their style passionately.

We happen to prefer the straight eyepiece, as Chase describes in the video below.
