Top 5 BinocularsWhether you are hunting whitetail in the Midwest or glassing for elk out west you'll want a great pair of binoculars. The first decision you'll need to make is magnification, most big game hunters will want between 8x to 12x. In a 12x50 pair of binoculars the 12 would be the magnification and the 50 would be the objective lens. The bigger the objective lens the brighter the binoculars image will be, this is crucial when hunting early morning or late in the evening. Most objective lenses for big game hunting will be either 42mm or 50mm. We carry everything from budget friendly binoculars to top of the line binoculars from all of the top brands.

I outfit for whitetail and hog in SC as well as one on one guide in Texas for Trophy whitetail. I chose this brand because of the slim design and weight for all day carry. I abuse optics with the amount of dust they are subjected to annually. This won't break the bank and is a quality optic and very clear. I can afford to replace these every year as no matter what, dust build up ruins the best of optics. Easy carry case and chest straps. This is perfect for the average hunter looking for a quality pair of binoculars. Good luck hunting this year!- Guidefitter, 7/19/2020

Compact Size...Big Performance
These new calcium-fluoride HD Pro Guide 8X32's (MIJ) offer some great optical performances, with possibly a few caveats. Pros: Sharpness, clarity and resolution appear very close to my Austrian Alpha glass binoculars. They are very solidly built, with a nice ergonomic layout and armor that is comfortable and secure to hold. Hinge IPD tension is tight and the 3-step eye cups have a very comfortable fit to my eye sockets. Focus speed is the fastest I've ever used, going from close focus (2 yds) to 100 yds in just 1\2 a turn, great for birding and quick in-close nature observations. These also offer another 3\4 turn to get you way out beyond infinity, very useful if you do not want to wear glasses while making observations. Focus tension is smooth and even, with enough resistance to easily maintain settings without any stray wandering. Diopter adjustment, located in the focus knob, has quite a bit of accommodation range (not specked out), is very easy to set and re-locks securely in place. Color presentati...- Theo98, 12/9/2017
Legend has it that while hunting one day, in the 1940’s, Marcus Leupold missed a buck because his rifle scope fogged up. He swore he could make a better rifle scope, and that’s exactly what he did. In 1947, Leupold introduced their first rifle scope, the Plainsman, the first truly fog-proof rifle scope built by Americans. Today, Leupold is an industry leader in the manufacturing of performance optics including hunting rifle scopes, target rifle scopes, tactical rifle scopes, pistol scopes, shotgun scopes, rimfire scopes, muzzleloading scopes, red dot sights, scope mounts, binoculars, range finders, and spotting scopes. So be bold. Be Tenacious. Be Relentless. Leupold performance optics are built by hard-working Americans who are committed to upholding the legacy of quality craftsmanship established over 100-years ago.Shop Now

Swarovski EL Range with Tracking Assistant Laser Rangefinding Binocular
The Swarovski EL Range with Tracking Assistant Laser Rangefinding Binocular can be configured to suit your specific needs and you can transfer your own ballistics data, allowing you to make an accurate assessment of every hunting situation. Three different ballistic curves can be fed into the EL Range TA via a built-in Bluetooth interface. Unlike all the other settings, which can also be adjusted on the binocular itself, configuring the ballistics has to be done via the EL Range TA Configurator App. The range measurement of the EL Range TA is based on a travel time measurement using a laser. The range can be measured between 10 meters (10.9 yards) and 2000 meters (2187 yards). The Tracking Assistant helps the hunter to identify the target area by measuring back to the point where the shot was fired. This can be done in two ways: via the EL Range TA and via the app. After establishing the Bluetooth connection, one of the EL Range TA’s last three measurements is selected. The starting point can be selected manually or displayed automatically. If you do it automatically, it is important that you are still in the exact spot where the measurement was taken. Afterward you can let your phone guide you toward the target area (arc-shaped search field). The EL Range is the latest demonstration of the innovateiveness that lies at the heart of Swarovski Optik. It combines Swarovision technology with precise range measurement. Spot game quickly and accurately thanks to the precision and edge-to-edge sharpness of Swarovision technology.

Very pleased, optics have finally closed the gap with non-RF
Been using Swarovski Range for the last two EL Range generations here in Alaska. Friends, and I even rented a pair from an outfit in Colorado until I got my own pair in June of this year. I'm not throwing a review up two days after purchase; nor am I criticizing it for its size since the dimensions and weight are clearly listed in the specs here. The latest design dropped in 2021 and the optical side finally caught up to the EL's. Previous EL Range didn't have alpha grade glass previously due to the laser not being able to effectively pass through the EL coatings. This was solved in the new EL Range TA, and the view is breath-taking, only lacking the wider FOV of the NL Pure. Finally, I'll say these EL TA's have better fit and finish than my NL Pure. There's not a single rough edge or line or fitment, which was not the case with my NL 8X42's, and perhaps in the NL a more delicate focusing assembly. The EL Range TA give a sense of top tier industrial engineering, fit, finish I've not experienced sin...- Arctic Ammo, 11/20/2022
