I dont know where but I would advise against that kind of binoculars for hunting.-< they will be hard to hold and offer a much lower field of view than a 8 x or 10 x whihc in my opinion is enough. If you want to observe an animal at LR and need more magnification, get a spotting scope.

alg,

They do have their place. You need a tripod or a window mount, but glassing long distances (as in miles) they are pretty nice. Keeping one eye closed for hours (or days) on end looking through a spotting scope gets old. Fast. And as 30-06 said they have an 80mm objective end so field of view is the same as a pair of 10x40's. I used a pair a friend of mine has and was pretty impressed.

30-06 this wouldn't be a cheap route, but you can also get a bracket to attach two spotting scopes together if you need even more magnification or clarity.

And Dick, how are you always everywhere all at once?

That's pretty close to what i was thinking of. Here's another example SWFA 20x65 Big Eye Spotter System
when cost is not an issue of course

That is a really nice setup but heck, the cost of mine just about pays the tax and shipping on the Swaros.
