I currently own nothing in the way of binoculars, and have only owned cheapo tasco binoculars in the past. I was not impressed. I do a lot of walking when hunting, so something compact and light would be great. I live in an area in WV, where we hunt in the grown up thickets and drainage valleys between farm fields. Most of the deer are within 100 yards or less when shot, and mostly a lot closer before they jump up and run. My guess is that I'm walking past a lot of deer because they are just sitting tight while I walk by them. Price is a consideration. They must also be weatherproof as it snows/rains a lot here during hunting season. I was looking at the sightron S2 line as they seem reasonably priced. I'm only looking for entry level at this point under $200 r so. thanks. pete

Try the porro prism Bushnell Legend series (the 8X42 model would likely be the best option for your uses.) They can be had at most major sporting goods chains for just over $100.
