1. binoculars with range finders, I bought the Leica HD-B's They tell you how many clicks to move your scope they take everything into consideration and they are one of the best bino's you can buy.
2. 20-60 power spotting scope,
3. 15 power binoculars on a tri-pod/mono-pod, don't buy the Vortex HD's 15 power, I am having issues with them not being in focus. I probably shouldn't have scrimped by, in purchasing those.
Get a good bi-pod and lay flat, us old guys need a nice pad to lay down.
But good luck in hunting this year
Check-Check-Double Check John!
Just re-starting in the hunting sport, so I've gone real "economical" till I find I like It. Got Leupold Gear - BX-2 for Binos, 1000i for RF and SX-1 for SS. We'll be shooting from a box stand at my son's Chapel Hill Game Mng. lease (yea, old man stuff, hehe)!
Raised my two sons hunting rabbit & squirrel some 25 years ago, then never got back into the sport. The oldest (37) now builds custom rifles
and presented me with a a Rem 700 LA .30-06 last Christmas...guess he figured that was the only way I'd say YES to hunting again...what's a dad gonna do, huh!
Safe & Happy Hunting to you & yours,
