Just like the scope that is attached to your hunting rifle, a good pair of binoculars are an essential tool in the quest to getting the prize at the end of the road. With any type of binoculars that you buy as a hunter you are looking for a number of different features from them, the first being a clear and concise view port that will allow you to see images without any obstruction. The second thing you want from a pair of binoculars is durability and strength because these are going to be carried around with you all hunting season so they can expect a few bangs, knocks and scrapes along the journey.
Not all binoculars are expensive either; some of them you will see that we have listed below fall into a budget price-range but offer some incredible features for the money you are required to pay.
So, if you are just about to look for a new pair of binoculars or you are just starting out as a novice deer hunting then pay close attention to the five sets of binoculars we are about to uncover.
Bushnell’s All-Purpose Binoculars
Up first in our list as some great priced all-purpose binoculars which are offered at the lower end of the market at under $100. This price and the features you get make these a fantastic pair for newcomers or as a backup pair for veterans in the hunting game. The binoculars have BK-7 prisms and the lenses help to repel fog so that you have a constant crystal clear view in-front of you at all times.
The biggest advantage to these Bushnell’s is the fact they have twist-up eyecups so any hunter that wears glasses can take great advantage from such a fantastically priced set of binoculars.
Oculus 7.0 Binoculars
Oculus have been making waves lately in the technology industry through their product called The Oculus Rift which is a virtual reality headset. The Oculus 7.0 Binoculars that fall into second place in our list are priced at $329.99 and offer an incredible level of advanced performance, with features that will blow your mind. With water-repellent lens coating, metal twist-up eyecups for hunters with glasses, and ED glass you are at the forefront of optical technology.
A lens cover and neck strap are also thrown into the bundle along with a soft case to protect the binoculars and also a microfiber cloth to clean and maintain the lenses.
Bushnell Powerview Compact Binoculars
If you really are on a tight budget then don’t let the hundred dollar binoculars make you think you can’t afford a decent pair. The Bushnell Compact range are the lowest priced binoculars you can get that will do a great job for you while you are out hunting for deer.
These binoculars are priced at less than $30 and for that price you still get fully-coated optics, great design and a carry case and neck strap.
Don’t expect the same kind of features that Oculus provide with their 7.0 binoculars but for the price you really are going to be paying for one of the best, if not the best pair of binoculars at that level.
Nikon PROSTAFF ATB Binoculars
Last but not least is the Nikon PROSTAFF binoculars which have a very sleek and stylish design that will offer you phase correction, multi-coated lenses that are waterproof so you can use them in adverse weather conditions without any issues.
Costing under $200 these binoculars have turn and slide eyecups that are ideal for hunters that wear glasses, but you can also benefit from fog proof features and the ability to mount them onto a tripod if you need to free up your hands at anytime.
Leupold Rogue Binoculars
