Let me start off by saying that no, these binoculars won’t immediately turn you into Chuck Adams, but they will make you a better hunter, and that is more than most of us can hope for out of our gear.
Why will they make you a better hunter? Because they are lightweight, extremely clear and make it easier to take quality glass afield. When you take quality glass, you suffer less eye strain while scouting and scanning for game. When you suffer less eye strain, you’re sharper and more comfortable, so you spend more time in the field and are more comfortable when the time comes to harvest your animal.
These are a 10×42 power bino with a BaK4 roof prism. The field of view is 341 feet at 1,000 yards and they weight in at just over 23 ounces. They come in a rubber,over-molded Realtree MAX-1 camo finish and have a neckstrap, cloth bag and hardened case. They have a very cool feature too. You can lock in the focus. This is awesome for when you’re scanning a certain area. You can set them so they are just right for that one spot and keep coming right back to that same spot in-focus, every time.
I got these in to test during the Michigan waterfowl season and they worked great for spotting incoming flocks of geese in the field. Very good clarity during those lowlight hours. Then I used them while scanning for deer during the archery and rifle deer seasons and they were very good at picking out the definitions of deer at long range, over 500 yards.
I would even go so far as to say that using the Bushnell trifecta of these binoculars, the rangefinder and my Bushnell trail cameras were the major reason I had a successful deer hunt.
The Outwrite Truth
The bottom line on these binoculars is that they are very good. Every bit as good as a much more expensive pair I have. My only gripe was that the lens caps for the front lens wouldn’t stay on for more than a little while and I constantly lost them. Not a big deal, at least for me and the way I hunt and used them.
Go get a pair!
