Range Finder Binocular

Several years ago I first started using a range finder at that time I had no idea that it would be such a valuable tool when it comes to hunting. To me it is just as important as a set of good binoculars.

Binoculars help you find what you are looking for but rangefinders let you know when it is close enough to make a shot. Now with the new rangefinders some of them have ARC (angle range compensation). With this extra tool no matter what angle you are shooting from then these range finders give you a true distance from stand to pray. This is one of the most recent improvements in range finders today.

With old range finders, you would get a correct distance but it did not compensate for the angle in which you were shooting. I have missed a lot of whitetails by not knowing the correct distance and not compensating for the angle that I was shooting. Never leave home on any outing that you may need to know what distance you make shooting whether or not you are rifle hunting or bow hunting.

To me it is more critical for you to use range finders while bow hunting. Bow hunting is more of a challenge because you must wait for the animal to get a lot closer than you do with a rifle. When bow hunting, my shooting range is from 5 to 35 yards. When rifle hunting I prefer the animal to be in the 100 yard range but I can shoot up to 300 yards as that is the longest distance that I feel good about shooting. Rangefinders will help you get close up in the outdoors.

Binoculars: which should I get for hunting?

I am a hunter and I need some nice binoculars. I don;t know a whole bunch about them though. My primary objective is to scan an area for activity. I would also like to be able to find range within a certain degree. Lets assume cost is not a issue (up to a grand) I also do not overly like relying on batteries (rangefinder). How do you feel about mil-dot recitles in binos?
Do they work? Another consideration is the size and durability? I pack a lot of stuff when I trek /hunt /camp so smaller is better to a degree, but I like quality.

Any ideas for brand, specs, etc...
Do you like range finders for binos???

As the old saying goes you get what you pay for.
I love Zeiss Conquest ABK Binoculars. Cabelas has them on sale now. I have tried many types but LOVE these! Just read the reviews at Cabela’s about them, people know a good product when they use one. Steiner, Meopta are fine binoculars, the cheaper Leupold and Pentax are acceptable and dependable.

The higher end binoculars are the way to go in my book. I hate things being undependable in the middle of no where. Also I do not like the “extras” they have now, what I mean is a range finder is ok but nothing else. I want clear optics with a wide field of view, good in low light, rugged, water proof, shock proof and light weight.
As far as magnification goes I like about x9 or x10 for general hunting and x20 for mountain or prairie hunting. So my fav is a 10x40.
Concerning range finders; I don’t want that on my binoculars. If it’s so far away that I have to check the distance I just pull out my range finder. If my rangefinder is part of my bino’s and it gets destroyed in a fall I just lost 2 pieces of equipment instead of one.
Some go with the cheap ones, I have too and some have ticked me off to the point that I had to throw them away.
Hope this helps you some.
