I'm relatively new to deer hunting. Last year I purchased a Savage 111 .270 that came with a Nikon prostaff scope. Because I'm new to this, I'm okay with the scope because I don't know any better. I never really got to test it out last season because I started late and I never saw anything. I was thinking about getting some binoculars before this season starts. I have some Nikon binoculars I got for free. They are the smaller $100 model. Thought about stepping up. I'm wondering if my money would be better spent on upgrading the scope that came with it first? The areas I hunt in are heavily wooded and I wouldn't take shots over 250 yrds. Just curious what other's opinions are and I have some gift certificates I need to use. Thanks!
