One binocular to rule the mountains

Contrary to the apparent popular belief otherwise....not all “western” hunting involves unlimited visibility! There are many various terrains that a hunter may encounter, from literally feet to thousands of yards. Personally, I prefer a quality, lightweight pair of binoculars, 8x being my preferred..... not to exceed 10 power! Quality, big glass is usually bulky and an unnecessary weight around your neck....even at 8x, you’re “ over glassed” for some situations. Our 8x30 Swarovski have served us well for 27 years and counting! If you can’t get the job done with 10x or’s time time to use your spotting scope! As per my usual qualifier, this is JMO! memtb

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
