I’ve used 20-24 power scopes for dogging in the past. Finer crosshairs work well for those little critters at distances of 300-400+. Anything out to 300 yards a 12-16 power is fine IMO.
Make sure you have a decent range finder as well. Especially for dogs out in the 400-500 range.
My farthest kills with a 20 caliber (20 Practical) were 548 yards, farthest with a 223 was just over 600 yards, close to 700 yards with a 243.
Been to South Dakota last 2 years and I think it was you Trevor that pointed us to the Woods area. Anyway I don’t think these 70+ plus year old eyes could see a dog at 500 yards 😀 3 of us old farts most likely missed more than we hit but we had a ball both years.PCIParticipantNovember 21, 2017 at 8:15 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantNovember 21, 2017 at 8:09 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantSeptember 29, 2017 at 2:43 amPost count: 2118PCIParticipantAugust 17, 2017 at 8:24 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantApril 13, 2017 at 8:49 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantApril 12, 2017 at 7:52 pmPost count: 2118

First can we please do some Math to establish the correct age for the first turkey… 2017=8, 2016=7, 2015=6, 2014=5, 2013=4 years old. I remember when he shot his first bird and it was posted here. Before we blast this young hunter and father if you cannot even determine the correct age via math and you have no knowledge of the hunter himself you should all butt out of what the parents have done with this young hunter to prepare him to hunt.
Congrats again on the bird.
Thank you Brian his dad is a police officer and happens to be a firearms instructor. In years past they have gone to my daughters (his sister) farm. Its almost to easy there I don’t think they ever had to wait a hour past shooting hour to be done.PCIParticipantMarch 21, 2017 at 8:06 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantFebruary 27, 2017 at 1:32 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantFebruary 25, 2017 at 1:44 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantFebruary 24, 2017 at 3:04 amPost count: 2118PCIParticipantFebruary 10, 2017 at 9:35 pmPost count: 2118PCIParticipantJanuary 27, 2017 at 5:16 pmPost count: 2118

I think the safety distance equation is 100 yds per pound of explosive. There are plenty of stores and vids on the internet of people dismembering themselves or others trying to blow of various things that send sharp hunks a flying.
My buddy and I thought if we put a 1 lbs under a 5 gal bucket it would send it into the air like a big firecracker wrong. We did this on his landing strip for his plane at his farm. Took about a hour of walking the strip to get all the torn pieces of bucket picked up. Scary how it ripped that bucket into so many pieces.PCIParticipantJanuary 27, 2017 at 5:07 pmPost count: 2118

On an unrelated note…. a hefty trash bag 1/2 full of acetelyne with just a bit of O2 will knock out security lights 1/4 mile away and piss your dad off! For a moment, I thought I was blind after the boom! Damn kids anyway!!!
WOW that made me laugh I know what a small bag will do very loud.
