I'm looking for some help in choosing a good pair of binoculars for hunting 'yotes and such. I can't believe the cost range. From $1000+ to $18. I just need a decent pair that are best bang for my buck. Help please.
I have been on that quest for many years and have found what I think is the best two for the price. Steiner the 8x30, they are lite and have a rubber coating on the outside. The other is the Canon image stabilized, this allows you to use higher power than nonstabilized ones. 8x is about as high of power that a person can hold and be able to use, the 10x when using the stabilized ones is easy. I use the Canon on my boat and that is when the they shine above the rest. Both are in the Cabela's catalog, which will make checking up on them easier.
I have a pair of 8x22 Steiners that work good and the best thing is that I actually carry them because they're small enough to fit in your pocket.I don't like to carry anything more than I need,they are small and good quality glass.
I have a pair of nikons in 8x42 that work really well for me. They are clear, bright and fairly cheap. I'm sure that the steiners are better glass but I hate carrying bino's around on my neck while predator hunting so they get the backpack treatment.
