Spend $600 or $700 and get the Burris or Leupold.  Or buy a pair of Burris Signature binoculars for $350 and a  Leica LRF for $400.

 

If you don't have binoculars your wasting your time hunting.  The experience that quaility binoculars bring to the hunt is irreplaceable!

I would get a Leupold while they come with a coupon for a FREE Rifleman 3-9x40 and sell the scope on eBay (should bring close to retail) and have only $499. in a very nice new Leupold 8x32 binocular / laser rangefinder.

 

Get a FREE Leupold Rifleman with the purchase of a Leupold RB800 or RB800C laser rangefinding binocular.
