Precisely what I will be doing, using a German #4 illuminated 1.5-5x20mm
However, the issue I ran into last year was that the weather was so nasty, and it rained/blew so hard and so much, that I couldn't keep the caps of my scope open, or I'd have freezing rain/sleet on the lens. I ended up jumping several deer at 10 or so feet, but I couldn't get my gun to my shoulder, and my scope caps open fast enough. This year, if the weather is that bad, I'm simply going to remove the scope, and shoot with the express sights.
