Hunting has many aspects. Accordingly, it is not easy to say: "these are the ideal binoculars for hunting!", you have to decide which type of hunting you prefer. Whether from a hide, stalking, hunt drives or in the mountains. In a hide, the weight certainly plays a lesser role than when stalking or in the mountains. However, since hunting often takes place at dusk, the exit pupil should be at least 4-5 mm. We recommend binoculars with 5-7 mm, especially for nocturnal use in a hide. The exit pupil is calculated using a simple formula: "aperture divided by magnification".
Of course, impermeability is very important. We cannot recommend binoculars for hunting that are not watertight. Too many environmental influences can reduce viewing pleasure or even make it impossible.
We rate binoculars as "not recommended” for hunting if the exit pupil is less than 3 mm. In addition, a hunting binoculars must in any case be waterproof.
Of course, there's no harm in owning a small pair of pocket binoculars that you keep handy in the car for short walks.
