    In situations where adjusting a scope’s reticle requires a tool, the "screwdriver" referred to in the video is also known across North America as a coin. ;^)

    Just clicked on the vid, have yet to watch, but, the most important thing for a deer hunting scope is light transmission, lens coating.
    The most critical time is early at dawn’s first light, or more likely, just before dark thirty, as legal hunting hour ends.
    This is directed to forested or eastern U.S. hunting in woodlands, not out west in vastness or an eastern power line or gas transmission line easement.
    If your glass can’t let you see them, the distance or caliber is moot.
    My first hunt, 1958, a retired RR man took me rabbit hunting, my first buck, 1969.
    Love watching whitetails. I buy every Redfield Denver, U.S. made Illuminator I can find. It’s still "the one."

    I was always told to spend as much on glass as on the gun. Great video!

    Take your time and have the right tools.

    Kristin is a great asset. Iron sights add about $50 to a rifle’s cost from factory. A few rifle’s without sights will come with scope rings/mounts for the same price as the one with sights. Henry long ranger comes to mind. 3-9×40 is probably overkill for most purposes. A 2-7×33 with 1" tube probably better for most people bc it’s lighter, less bulky. Picatinny rails add more weight than traditional 2 piece ring mounts and in traditional hinged magazines a rail may interfere with top loading. I don’t like the see through mounts bc they add extra height. This may lead to having to get a stock with with a high or adjustable comb to allow for proper cheek to stock. The extra height also puts more stress on the scope as it gets farther from the rifle when firing.
