I guess another question is how do you usually hunt? If you mostly do the ole' spot and stalk, then the weight may become an issue. I never really did that unless the animal was worth going after........and usually I found that out from using a spotting scope from where I was glassing the hill sides. When I lived in Oregon, I hunted in the Coastal Range from Newport down to the Yachats area.............a lot of clear cut to early growth trees and I never really hiked for miles unless it was to go after a bruiser..........which never happened.......but there were times when I wasn't sure if what I was looking at was a deer or not (I was using 10x binos at the time) so I was glad I had the spotting scope to verify that I was actually looking at a very convincing looking growth of brush
before exerting my lazy butt to get into range for a shot
