I would rather have iron sights than try to hunt with a target scope. Most deer are killed with in 50 yard in the the eastern US. When the day comes I need a scope to kill a deer I will give my rifles away to my nephews and cousins. I do use scopes but I don't need a scope. Every rifle I own has open sights on it. If the scope breaks or something goes awry I can take the scope off and go hunting,

I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
