I currently use a bushnell on my .308 it is a 3-9x40mm buckmaster i love that scope it is very crisp and clear. I had a simmons Aetec on the rifle before but it always seemed to be fogged up and wasn't nearly as clear as the bushnell.

I'm a leupold man myself but have read good reports on Bushnell elites, Burris, Zeuss.
I had one bad experience with Kahles. The scope wouldn't keep zero on my 300RUM so I called cust. serv. and they were extremely rude to say the least. I took the scope back to the shop and bought another leupold(VX-II) and have been very happy with the choice. I went with Kahles (instead of Leupold) because I was hearing how Leupold was over-priced and there were better scopes out there. I have 5 Leupold scopes on rifles I own and have never had a single problem with any of them.
What calibre are you putting it on?

I purchased a Burris Fullfield II. It's got a "forever" warranty same as Leupold, but was cheaper.
MORE IMPORTANT THAN PRICE, the Fullfield II has FULLY multi coated lenses, giving it about 95% light transmission. The Leupold VXII (comparable model) is only multi coated on the outside of the lenses, giving it less than 90% transmission. If I'm dropping $200-$270 I demand better than that. My Burris is noticably brighter in low light than my friend's Leupold.
Also, I like how smooth and well designed the rear eyepiece, focus, and zoom is on the Burris. It's done european style, with an integrated piece. It's a much better design than Leupolds. Leupold costs more because they pay A LOT more to advertise, and do pay out on their warranties, but not because they're better!!!
Those are my .02 cents!

I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
