Who uses Binoculars, and What Size and Brand?

Recommended Posts

I've had Bushnell, Steiner, Cabela's, Nikon, and Leupold.

I'm stuck on Leupold.

 

Wind River Cascade 10 X 42.

Small enough to travel, yet big enough to gather low light and strong enough to count points.

Just bought Swarovski's SLC 10X42 model this season. Like 'em real well so far. Terrain varies from area to area for Whitetails.

 

Been using Steiners for the past four or so years with good results. They're still packed just in case the worse happens.

I always try to take my binoculars with me unless I accidentally forget them at home... I've got lots of cheap pairs that mom used to buy all the time and I have two good pairs that I actually use, a pair of Nikon 10X32 and a pair of Nikon 10X50. I carry the little pair for long walks when I don't want to carry a large pair around my neck all day and I take and the big pair for short walks or when I'm gonna be hunting a tree stand and I dont't mind carrying the extra weight... I am also wanting to buy a spotting scope here pretty soon to do some early season scouting.

After reading the Sept issue of Field and Stream, their Best Gear of the Year issue, I bought a pair of Vortex Viper 10X42. They rated them best in their class. I really like them. They're Japanese glass. I wouldn't say they're Swarovski, I've never even looked through Swarovski, but they are super clear and super bright. I killed a 6 point buck this season at dusk dark that you couldn't see with just your eyes.

 

I think binoculars are very important to your hunt. Some people say 10X42 is a little big and shaky, but I think they're the perfect all around size for multi use. I hunt open areas and in the woods and I use them for both.

Swarovski 10-42 EL's couple years old and almost need tr**** and i do use one on occasion. This was a gift from Uncle Sam so thanks everyone!! Almost got a nice set of NVG's during Desert Storm but Flight crew came back for them cause they were around 2500.00 bucks back then and pilot was frantically looking for something and i asked him what he was looking for and i told him i stashed them in the Galley Storage for safe Keeping!! hehe!!:D
