Best Binoculars For Hunting

Hunting is one of the most exhilarating and crafty hobbies you can enjoy. It takes a great deal of skill to stalk and hunt specific species of animals out there in the wild. Lots of craft is required to move stealthily through the field and you do need to be knowledgeable about different animal species and their activities.

One of the hardest parts about hunting is to locate and identify the right species before you make the kill. When you are out there in the wild with the sun beating down on you and the blood pumping it can be quite easy to mistake one species with another. 

A good pair of hunting binoculars are invaluable when it comes to identifying the right type of species to hunt, the right trophy size and especially if you are looking for a specific animal.

It isn’t easy to find the best binoculars for hunting when there are so many to choose from. Bushnell’s 10x42 Trophy binoculars are a superb pick if you are looking for something sturdy that offers the best view out there in the wild.

Our Rating

What we love about these binoculars is how fantastic they look. The Bushnell 10x42 Trophy Binoculars is styled with beautiful camouflage coating that is sure to match your hunting outfit to perfection.  If the camouflage coating doesn’t please you then you can also opt for the bush green pair. The Bushnell logo is displayed modestly on the top of the binoculars and a slight orange line graphic underneath the logo and around the focus wheel offers a sporty look.

The binoculars are quite sturdy. They are 100% water and fog proof and the non-slip rubber armor helps absorb shock so those sensitive lenses won’t get damaged no matter how wild it gets on your hunting spree.

The binoculars are very easy to use. A large focus knob located in the center allows you to adjust the focus of the binoculars with ease and a diopter fitted to the right lens makes it possible to perfectly tune your view to suit different eye strengths. The trophy binoculars also have twist-up eyecups so you can adjust them for comfortable viewing.  You get a binocular pouch that to keep your pair safe and in great condition when in storage. The pair also comes with straps that offer easy handling and the removable lens protectors are very simple to attach or take off.

Final Verdict

The Bushnell 10x42 Trophy binoculars are available at a very affordable rate considering the specifications of the pair, especially when you compare it to other brands. The pair offers a very nice overall look and is a nice addition to your normal hunting kit.

A roof prism design, lens coatings, and large objective lens diameter offer a great view even in limited light conditions. The 10x magnification is also great for getting a closer look at animals at a far distance before you make the kill.

The pair is perfect for hunting thanks to its sturdy design. It comes with a rubberized coating that absorbs impact, prevents the binoculars from slipping out of your hands and absorbs impact as you move around the bush. The binoculars are also waterproof which a big bonus for hunting expeditions is in misty and rainy weather.

The biggest drawback of the pair is that the eyecups are not soft and foldable. They can be adjusted by turning them but don’t offer the same soft and rubbery feel as binoculars eyecups that can be folded over. The removable lens cups can also be annoying to add and remove as you journey and the neck strap could have been of better quality.

But besides these slight drawbacks, the pair is of good quality and will offer you the best view despite different weather conditions.
