Ruger M77 Hawkeye in any of the following calibers:
I would also look at the following Weaver optics:
K4 - Fixed 4x

Don't let anyone tell you that you need to pony up the extra cash to have one of the ballistic reticles either. You can use a standard old duplex reticle as a range finder without all the extra crap in your line of sight.
Also, don't forget that a binocular is actually probably more important than a rifle scope. The binocular will help you be able to see through the brush much better and locate more deer that you would have never seen with just the naked eye.
