What are your guys opinions on 12 x 50 binoculars for western big game ? I was doing a little bit of research
I have recently purchased a pair of Maven 12x50. These are hard to beat considering quality to priceWhat's up y'all? Just a quick question. I'm just wondering what binoculars y'all may like for glassing up big game at distance. Currently I have some Athlon 10x42's. I've been in the woods trying to get on some elk, & I notice with these that I can glass up an elk at distance no problem. Where I have a problem is being able to determine if it's a legal bull, by judging the horns at distance with the binos I have. I stopped carrying my spotter because of the weight with the tripod so just curious abour better binos. Just wondering what y'all may like for big game hunts. I don't want something real heavy, just something that works well. Thanks and hope you killed one this archery season.
What optics were you using beforeI switched to 12x50's this fall (Maven). They are great. They were all I carried now hunting last week. I used them still hunting to glass through the trees. I used them on a tripod. I used them for medium distance. I braced them on my bow when I needed to but also hand held them plenty. There's no perfect optic but for me, in Colorado, the 12x50's come pretty darn close.
