  I'm trying to decide between the Bushnell Discoverer 10 X 42 or the Minox 10 X 42 BL binoculars.  I will be using them for hunting.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

On paper they are fairly similar. They are both about the same size though, the Bushnell weighs 5.6 ounces more.  The Bushnell does offer an extra 1mm of eye relief (17mm vs 16mm) and also a 26 ft. wider field of view (341 ft vs 315 ft @1000yds.) I have never looked through or handled a Minox BL so, I can't speak to the image quality nor the build quality.  I have looked through the Discoverer (in both 7x and 10x though, not yet in 8x) and they are excellent.

I guess the best would be to try MINOX:

Get the Minox BD BR and you will be a lot happier, they are worth the little bit ox extra cash.
