Binoculars are the most important piece of equipment that you should have when you are going for a hunting expedition or even for a birding session. The reason being that there are special needs for each kind of hunting is it deer hunting or turkey hunting or it is simply elk hunting.
The size of the objective lens is the second number in our 8×42 example. The number 42 is the width of the large lens of the binoculars in millimeters. The bigger the number the more light is allowed into the binoculars and in turn this affects the brightness the image being viewed. The brighter the image the better you will be able to see in low light conditions such as early morning or late evening or even cloudy days. A lens diameter of 42mm is a good place to start for a newbie.
Everybody has a preference for what sort of game they want to hunt. Some prefer large prey such as deer while many like hunting rabbits or other smaller varmint. The truth is that your choice of magnification for binoculars will be influenced very much by what sort of game you wish to hunt regularly.
The bottom line is that there isn’t just one right pair of binoculars out there, just like there aren’t just one right pair of shoes for everyone. You have to try on each pair and compare for yourself.
You will need at least a 7 or 8 times power (or magnification zoom) best thermal scope to clearly see and identify the birds you are watching. Any less and you’ll have trouble seeing the smaller details of any birds you are watching from any great distance away.
A point to remember is once you start to increase the magnification, you will also start to increase the amount of shakiness or wobble of the image you are viewing.
