More FOV

This was my first year with a crossbow. Bought a Wicked Ridge warrior HL. Ive been happy with it except for the scope, which is a ten point of undetermined magnification. Seems like 4X. Anyway on close shots the FOV is way smaller than i would like. Can anyone recommend something, I wont be shooting any further than 35 yards so I dont need much mag if any.

Re: More FOV

I hear ya. At 20 yards or less, 4X is too much. I have shot a few deer at less than ten yards and they were almost a blur in the scope.

I am waiting for someone to come out with a reasonably priced 2-6X variable in the first focal plane with hash marks. That way you can change the power without affecting your sight in ranges of the hash marks.

I like 3X as a compromise. My Hawkes are 3X and I believe my TenPoint with the spped dial is around 3X as well as I have it set up.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

The Hawke is a sweet scope for those wanting less magnification. We sell it for $89.99
