Binoculars and Spotting Scopes

I think that I had an epiphany today. I just realized that high powered binoculers are a lot cheaper than high powered scopes! Especially when you figure you just need one pair to cover all your rifles.

I need a pair of high power bino's for counting antlers out to 500 yards and I know nothing about them.

What are some good options for the money (money is tight!)

Also, I need a crash course on at what range spotting scopes are supposed to take over. How much is a decent spotting scope for counting antlers out to 1000yds?

Thanks in advance for all of the numerous years worth of experience that you all are about to save me from finding out on my own!!!

    As far as value binos, we are really liking the Vortex Viper HD 8x32. We are ordering these this week and will have them in soon...

    For your spotting scope getting antlers over 1,000 yards, you're going to need high-end glass that will cost you well over $1000. The Vortex Razor HD Spotter is one option among many:
