Scope for drives?

Just wondering how many guys on here have scopes on their bear driving rifles? I've got either a scoped 300 savage or an open sighted 35 remington lever gun. We will mostly be pushing clear cuts. Whats everyones opinion?

It's not luck if success is consistent.

Re: Scope for drives?

no scope for me and i've killed 4 in pa. in my lifetime of bear hunting pennsylvania i've been in on as part of our gang somewhere around 80 bears killed. of those bears the average shot is 30yards or less, the time from seeing a bear and firing probably less than 3 seconds. scopes may work in the woods , not in and around the rhododendron doing drives

Remington Model 7600 18 1/2" Carbine 30/06 with a Leupold Vari X III 1.75 X 6. Mine has the HEAVY duplex crosshair and works very well in thick cover and low light. Low magnification and wide field of view is the key IMO.
