Default Bushnell Sentry 18-36x50 - opine please.

Here's the deal. For a bonus at work I get to pick an item from a list. One of the items is the Bushnell Sentry 18-36x50 spotting scope. I don't own a spotting scope and haven't needed one, but I'm planning on going elk hunting in CO this fall on a DIY hunt, so a spotting scope might come in handy.

Anyone know if this is decent scope? Does it make sense to haul a spotting scope around when hunting from a backpacked to spike camp?

I googled and the price is around $105-$120. If I don't pick the scope my wife wants the American Tourister black 3-piece luggage set from the Bonneville series... I suppose I could take that on the elk hunt too.

This is not a bad scope for the money. I believe the optics are only coated, not fully or fully multi coated. Used to be made \in Korea but now made in Japan. It is a cut above the tasco, BSA, and simmons products in the range. If you can get it free, get it. But If I had to spend 120 of my own money, I would try to get a used Swift Telemaster or B and L discoverer on ebay.
