Never tried the elite series. Personally I have had horrible luck with Bushnell both in the product and customer service areas. I have heard the elite series is better than some of their scopes in the past. Just my personal experience and in all fairness it was quite a few years ago. Maybe they've changed.
I have had many Bushnell scopes with good results, I currently have an Elite 3000 3-9 on my .243. All I will say is my 300 wby is getting a 4-16 Pentax Lightseeker. For the same money as the 4200, I feel it is a superior scope with the best warranty in the business. Optics are unbeatable for the price. Check em out, they also make a Pioneer line with high quality glass for around $200.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
