    Optics for SE Alaska alpine hunt

    Is it worth lugging a spotter and tripod up for an end of August alipine blacktail hunt in Alaska?

    I've never been to the area before so I don't really know the terrain other than topos and google maps. I am bringing an 8x bino for sure but would bring my 65mm if it's worth the weight.

    I would say no. It's not like a sheep or goat hunt where you need to study the animal up close to know if it's legal or mature.

    no. pretty easy to tell if it is a buck. binos are nice. scope is overkill.
