I read the whole thing. I must really be serious.
I seem to be having a bit of trouble catching your drift.
Ok so at twilight there is a wow factor with the Kowas. But you also say the Doctor's are good for counting hairs on a deer's ass. Is the wow factor worth the dollars.
Here's the real use. About anything I put to my eye is good for sorting out deer/yote movement through the russian olives, etc up to 500 yards.
For LR, if there are two herds of deer one at 600 with a decent set of horns in it that are easily seen and another herd at 1100 with a small spike only in it. I want the spike! Longer shot, more glory and all that.;)
What do you recommend for binos based on those conditions as I wouldn't want to miss the opportunity getting the spotter into position.
I'd rather have a 1K spike than a 600 yd 4X unless the 4X was 28 or better. Hell, then I'd sneak away a bit. Yeah, right
