bushnell binoculars reviewNo Binoculars = Unsure Sightings

For the longest time, I did not own a pair of binoculars. Honestly, I didn’t think I needed them. I certainly had never looked at a Bushnell binoculars review, or any other binocular review for that matter. However, the older I get the more I realize that having a good pair of binoculars is extremely helpful even if you don’t need them to just identify what type of animal it is you’re looking at. Sometimes, we need to see a bit more detail than we can see with our naked eyes. Often, the animals that we are hunting or observing will simply not allow us to get close enough to get a good look. In areas that have antler restrictions and when hunting game that has other similar restrictions, it’s almost impossible to know for sure that you are shooting at a legal animal unless it’s really close already. Where I hunt here in Illinois, it’s not a matter of state regulations but rather personal goals. When I am watching a deer that’s 75 yards away, I can’t tell with my naked eye if I’m looking at a button buck or doe, especially if it’s alone. Without the reference of another deer, it’s difficult to tell the difference between a fawn born that spring and a year and half old doe. This is one area that I could have really used binoculars in the past. My first ever deer with a bow was a button buck. Though I was extremely excited to have gotten my first deer with a bow, I was also really upset with myself that I did not realize that it was a button buck even though the shot was only 20 yards. Had I had a pair of binoculars with me, I wouldn’t have made that mistake.

Bushnell Binoculars Review

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from the binoculars when I bought them. I figured as long as they allowed me to confirm the difference between a yearling buck and a doe at 100 yards then it was worth the money. Little did I know that these little binoculars would far surpass my expectations which is what prompts me to write this Bushnell binoculars review. the binoculars have an adjustable range with your thumb while focused on an animal, which is great for obvious reasons. You also have an easy focus adjustment that can be done with one finger while looking through them.  The clarity that I have while watching a deer is awesome. I am able to watch a deer at 300 yards and count his antler points or pick out deer that are standing in at the edge of a wood lot almost 400 yards away with enough detail to get a good look at the rack if it’s a buck. These binoculars are small and lightweight too, they easily fit in your backpack without taking up a lot of room or weighing it down. Granted, without being on sale, the binoculars retail at about $115. However, Amazon has them (at the time of writing this) for $65. You can’t beat that! I highly recommend these binoculars to anyone hunting for a new pair or looking for your first pair. Happy Hunting!
