Best lightweight spotting equipment setup for mobile long range hunting?

When I am hunting from a truck and walking only a few hundred yards to a mile or so, itís easy to take along everything but the kitchen sink. This means an 80mm spotting scope, a set of binoculars, a mid-weight tripod and plenty of other stuff. But when I go off for the whole day with a pack large and sturdy enough to carry back my heavy rifle and the meat from a deer or antelope, I always struggle over which gear to leave behind.

Thanks for the write up Len. I see in the pic with the Kaibab sitting next to a set of swaros and the resolution chart. So how did the Vortex binos stack up in resolutino to the Swaros?

Iowaboy, Swaro was a little better but not by enough to matter to most people.

Re: Vortex Kaibab Binoculars And Outdoorsmans Tripod Review By Len Backus

Good info Len, I use similar set up for my mountain hunting, depending on hunt, terrain, etc. Sometimes Leupy 12-40x60, 10-20-x40, or my 10x32 el w/ doubler, I also use a ultra small window mnt for small spotter and jab my knife in stump or tree for the mount. Im getting older and have to cut wght. on those big hikes. Snipepod @ 6oz. manly to get me out of snow for longer shots, used in conjunction w/ back to tree, arms on knee or log, everthing to get stable. The pod is nice when I amin a high basin, timberline and a muley is heading out the top, with deep snow the pod keeps my gun up and out of snow when I FLOP DOWN prone, my last 4 muleys averaged 180, have arrowed 160-170 whiteys before I got muley bug
