Have you considered the Leica Geovids. They are the be all of binocular/rangefinders.
I haven't looked at anything yet, wanna get some leads before going out to look. When I went shed hunting, the guy we were with had a nice pair of swarovski's, but I imagine those were in the 600-800 range which I'm only looking to spend 200-300
yes i agree with scott. i just bought a bushnell yardage pro legend and am very happy with it . i kept my binos also, but now i dont think i'll be needing them. the yardage pro legend and scouts are just one eye operated and have a 6x magnafication. did some scanning today out to 500 yards and had no problems at all. that little red fox looked pretty clear to me!
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
