I have a 3x9 vx-II on my knight disc, i don,t think it is to ethical and i do not shoot at any jumped game that is moving. I hunt in ILL. and over some open fields and wood scrub and i think the better and clearer you can see the game the more of ethical shot can be made. I still do not know if the vx-II has the same or better lens than the M/l 3x9. I got a encore and have not scoped it yet thats why i am wondering, i am leaving Knight scoped for my sons to use. Thanks for any info.
