Binoc's

Just give me some ideas for a set to put on my bino straps. I have had some big ones on there and the are not real good for what I need. Looking for a better field of view at closer ranges and lighter to leave on while I shoot my bow. I am looking mostly for bow hunting and in real thick brush, maybe max of 100-150 yards, I will keep the big boys in the backpack or in the truck.

I have a pair of 10x25 Nikon that I use for hunting the woods. I love 'em! Right about $100.

I got a set of 10X auto focus ones... THink bushnell makes em... smallish, but not too small. And love the auto focus feature, cant figure out how it works, but it does!

I bought a pair of this years Bushnell Legends. For the money, I believe they're the best you can buy. I did a ton of research on binocs in the $250 to $400 price range and I'm super happy with this purchase. Tons of people were happy with last years model and this years model has better glass and a nicer eye relief system. I highly recommend them.

I purchased a set of 10x42 Zhumell glasses a year or so ago. Smeller set and will fit into a little bit bigger coat pocket or a harness. I have been overjoyed with these glasses an would without a doubt buy them again. Lifetime warranty also.

If my memory serves me well, I believe I paid $275.00 for them.

Harvey, are the Zhumell's that you have the 10x42 Signature Waterproof binoc's? I found some online but want to make sure they are as good as the reviews I've seen. The main thing I am wondering about is how they do in low light. Thanks.

8 power work better IMHO for most whitetail hunting in MN. Easier to hold steady and wider field of view. I have a pair of Nikon Monarch 8x42 set up with bino buddies and love them.

I second the Bushnell Legends. For $250-$300 range.

I do recommend the 8x32. They are comfortable, light/small, with BAK 4 prisms and have an exit pupil of 4 (about the max light gathering humans can notice).

Has anyone ever seen the Zhumells in a store? I checked their website but there are no stores listed.

I bought a pair of Cabelas last year for Colorado out of the bargain cave They listed for 330.00 and I paid 170.00 for them Of course I didnt get a warranty with them , but not really worried about it either though. Great pair of Bino's

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
