With the rifle season for deer fast approaching, this is the time of year I definitely want to have my scope set up picked so I can start dialing it in. With work and bowhunting I don’t have a lot of time to get to the range before the Monday opener after Thanksgiving. The Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40mm rifle scope is one of the best options in the store for a great price.  

The first thing I noticed is the great field of view you get when you look through it. Even at the lowest setting you could see a lot of the woods and it’s all crystal clear. I also really liked the BDC reticle system that Nikon outfits this scope with. Sometimes I notice deer moving through a valley or feeding out in a cut ag field, so reticles give me the ability to shoot quickly and confidently at different distances. Also, if you’re planning a trip out west you won’t need to buy a new scope before you head out.  

If the weight of your rifle set up is something you think about, this scope is noticeably lightweight. I don’t always think about that but with some hunters, when heading farther back in the woods every ounce counts.  

This scope has everything a rifle hunter should want if you need a scope for a first-time hunter, or if you just want to upgrade to a new one for your set-up. Either way you’re getting a quality durable product without having to spend what it usually costs for quality optics.
