Bowhunting with 10x56mm?

Has anyone stand hunted with 56mm objectives? I like the increased exit pupil and was just wondering if it’s too cumbersome and weighty for stand hunting.

Nope, can't say that I have. The largest binos I have any interest in carrying on my chest for bow hunting out of a stand is my 8x32. I have carried my 8.5x42 bow hunting but even those are bigger than I want on my chest in a bow stand.

In have, 8x56 Night owls and I now own 10x56 SLC's. I live in East and stand hunt a lot, no issues for me with larger objective from a stand. I was in Iowa last year on a late season MZ hunt and had 8x42's with me but wished I had more. If I can carry them in my bin harness I'll put them in my pack. No problems.

Try them if you have them. Big and bulky but you'll like the view. I use 8x32s in stands with tighter viewing and if I can see a long ways...out into fields or across draws I'll use my 10x42s. Never carried my 15x56.
