Default What power scope do you use for bear/moose?

Just curious what power of scopes most people use when big game hunting for bear or moose, (ex. 4.5x14x50, 3x9x40, 2.5x8x36, etc.) Sorry if this is an ignorant question.

My dad uses an old K4 (I'll assume 4x32), and I'm planning on buying a Leuplod compact 2-7x33

It depends on the terrain of course. That determines your likelihood of short vs. long shots. I myself prefer a 2x to 10x scope like a Redfield. Then you're prepared for getting up close or taking a long shot across a clear cut if need be.

I think a 3-9x40 would be a good choice. Good luck.
