I'm thinking of pruchasing my first pair of binos. I hunt alot of heavily timbered forest in the north east. What would be the best type of bino for the job. I plan to spend between 400 to 500 hundred on them. I was thinking about the Minox 8.5 by 40. Does anyone have any experience with these. Thanks.

The Minox binos I used in Northern NM for mule deer hunting a few years ago were outstanding. They weren't mine, but my guides, but I used them every once in awhile.


I had a pair of Nikon LX's that are still the best I ever looked through, but the Minox were good to go!!

I like the 8x binos anymore myself. 


Welcome to OT, friend.

In the same category as the Minox are the Kahles brand binoculars.  I use the 8x42 Kahles as my primary hunting binocular.  Nothing wrong with the Minox--good optics, good package, good value.  Don't pass up considering the Kahles if you find the right deal--very similar performance in a comparably priced package IF you find them on sale.
