Iron sights used to be the standard for hunting, but as every technology does, they evolved into what we now see as the standard: the modern scope. A scope will allow long range shots so you can ensure clean humane kills on animals of all sizes, but even more importantly, a scope will allow you to take confident shots, whether at the range or in the field. When you know your shot will land where you place it, your abilities as a hunter cannot help but improve. When you can take one variable out of the hunting equation by essentially perfecting your ability to replicate the result, your other variables are able to improve more easily. If you have a scope, you can pay less attention to worrying about windage and elevation adjustments with iron sights, and instead, worry about stalking, movement and presentation while finalizing your shot. A scope will improve your confidence while simultaneously improving your ability to land a shot at long distances. As a tool for your overall hunting strategy, a scope can also provide valuable information and insight to the hunting area and of the animals you are hunting. Having the ability to see the terrain where your animal is grazing or bedding down will give you clues to their activities and potential routes. Being able to clearly see the changes in elevation, wind patterns in the grass and physical barriers will also allow you to take a shot with more information, leading to the most responsible shot.
