Can a hunter manage a single rifle scope

The requirements in everyday hunting are very different. Depending on whether you are hunting a fox or sowing sows, whether you are looking for a bunch or a triple, whether you are sitting at dusk or stalking in the mountains.

To be optimally equipped-, one should have the optimal rifle scope available for the different types of hunting. You can read the Best Long Range Rifle Scope Review

Before you buy, you should answer the following questions yourself:
  • Where is the rifle scope mainly used?
  • Are there long distances in the area?
  • On which weapon the riflescope should be mounted
  • What is the reticle?

Where is the rifle scope mainly used?
Different types of hunting Variable magnifications in the middle range with mean lens diameters are easy enough for the game, but they also offer sufficient reserves for, 1.5-6×42, 2.5-10×50, 3-9×42, and the like.
predominantly game Low magnifications and small lens diameters, since they are preferably used in daylight and have a lower weighteg, 1.1-4×24, 1.25-4×24, 1.5-6×42
predominantly residence
High magnifications and large lens diameters give a good twilight performanceIlluminated screens are beneficial for deep twilight

eg 8×56, 2.5-10×48, 3-12×56

predominantly hunt-hunting and big-game hunting Low magnifications and small lens diameters, since they are preferably used in daylight and have a great field of viewDay illuminated images are advantageous for the volatiles

eg, 1.1-4×24, 1.25-4×24, 1.5-6×42

mainly in the mountains Medium variable magnifications and average lens diameters to accommodate different distances and not to carry too much 2.5-10 x 48, 3-9×36, 5-15×42

Are there long distances in the area?
Yes light glassi.e., if necessary, reduce the magnification and the lens diameter to save weight

On which weapon the riflescope should be mounted
light weapon light, slim rifle scope
Closed season bush here one could also mount a cheap rifle scope since the weapon is not used at dusk and the shot strength in the small caliber is not particularly stressed
triplet variable rifle scope for the volatile shot also with shot and shotguns at a small magnification

What is the reticle?
Predominantly at dusk Reticles with strong beams, such as 1 and 4, allow the target point to be seen even in poor light conditions. Illuminated screens, which are connected using a step less dimmer, additionally indicate the center of the crosshair
mainly during the day Reticles with thin threads, such as 3 and 6, slightly obscure the object. In the USA, however, these reticles are used only on the shooting range.
For the volatility Reticles that do not obscure the target, but still do well in the center of the reticle, as in the second day
of the day, which does not exceed the bright daylight even in bright daylight. 
Distances should be appreciated For example, in section 1, the distance between the crossbars is 70cm to 100m. This means that a wide standing roebuck fills this distance exactly. When the trestle is 200 m away, it fills only half of the interspace.This is true with fixed magnification for reticles with strong bars. In the case of variable magnification, this applies only to the reticles mounted in the objective plane (usually in the USA).

If the reticle is mounted at variable magnification in the second image plane (eyepiece plane), the distances can be calculated using scales and tables such as the Mil-Dot, Sniper, and Ranging.
