Sight for Wolf Hunting-Please tell me what size and kind of telescope to get for wolf hunting. I want one to see from one-quarter to three miles. Also, what does the diameter of a telescope mean?
A question like this is difficult to answer satisfactorily, for the reason that itís picking telescopes or field glasses, it is largely a matter of individual liking as in picking a gun or rifle or revolver. You may have to purchase several before you find what you want or need. They range so price from $2.00, say, to $20, or more. For work at a quarter of a mile, most would need a glass covering a large field, but for far away work, up to three miles, the glass would have to magnify a great deal, to reveal a wolf, and to get large magnification, the field covered grows very small. In speaking of diameters magnified by telescopes; suppose you look at a window in a building 500 yards distant; it seems to be about an inch square. A glass magnifying 10 diameters would increase its apparent size to 10 inches square. This is a rough statement, but it makes the object look 10 times as large as it does to the naked eye. What you want ta something to help you pick a wolf out of the brush and prairie back ground, and you will find any good -telescope, costing around $4.00 to $10.00, magnifying from 10 to 15 diameters of very great assistance. Personally, I should prefer a pair of good field glasses for the work you suggest; but they are more expensive. Write to our sporting goods advertisers for catalogues of spy glasses.
