Help upgrading binoculars

I hunt in Arizona and Colorado, and now have a pair of Leupold Mojave 10x42. I am not going to be able to sneak a pair of $2000 binoculars into the garage but maybe $1000. I have heard very good things about the Pentax 10x43 ED. Any help would be appreciated.

    Gene,
    I do not have any experience with the Pentax. But in your price range I'd check out the Steiner Predators. I own a pair and they are excellent glass. I have zero complaints. Used them all over the country.

    Stick with the big 3, Leica, Swarovski, Ziess and use a tripod. You can find an older model or used model on line in that price range. When glassing for hours there is just no compromise, you do not want eye strain (hence the tripod). I have tried many brands over the years but alway go back to Swarovski and Leica.
