Re: Binocular vs monocular for hunting
I used to hate carrying heavy binoculars on a strap around my neck. They would bang around and not hold focus. So I went from one store to another buying various cheap mini binoculars. If I did not like them, I would return immediately for a refund. I tried Bushnell, Simmons, Tasco, and several off brands, to no avail. Then I decided to bite the bullet and bought a pricey Leica 10x20 roof prism binocular. What a difference. It is very light, clear, and I hardly know its there, and the ten power is very good. The focus remains exactly where it is set. However, larger lens have a big advantage in low light conditions. I have tried a monocular, but the field of view is very narrow and carrying in the pocket takes too long to get it out.
