I know the feeling, did it 2 years ago and had a blast. Last year my original partner got a few more guys in on it, my new partner decided he wasn't feeling well enough (brown bottle flu) at 5 am. So I missed last year. This year I am back with my original partner, so I should actually be able to get some tree rat meat

Was a good time, My partner tagged out, I saw 3, shot at one and missed . Think I am going to buy a scope soon, and some binoculars, my eyesight isn't good enough to find them in the trees anymore.

I always had a cheap scope on my 22. Helped a lot for the longer shots through the sticks. Wish I could've made it!

I'm torn. One buddy has a BSA, which has an Amazon review rating of 4.3(pretty damn good in amazon ratings) for Like $60. Other buddy has a Nikon pro staff with a 4.9 rating on amazon for $150. Is it really worth $90 more for a 22lr??? I dunno

I put a cheap ass Walmart BSA scope on my kid's .22 and somehow that thing's a tack driver. I bought it just to get him into shooting and honestly it shoots so well we haven't needed to upgrade, & we're closing in on 3 years with it. FYI it's just a 4x 32.

Well I bought the $50 BSA. I am really tempted to buy a 17 hmr for next year.

This. Most plinker 22's won't ever shoot over 75 100 yards max. So glass clarity isn't really an issue. I've been thrilled with bushnell 3-9 $40 special on my marlin, a buddy has the same on his 10/22; no issues.
