If you do a lot of glassing on your hunts, you need high-quality optics.
While there are a lot of really great binoculars out there, Leupold's new BX-5 Santiam 15x56mm binoculars are perhaps the hottest on the market. Leupold just introduced these binoculars this year, and I was fortunate enough to try them out on a recent deer hunt in New Mexico, courtesy of the folks at Ochocos.
So how did the Santiam binoculars do out in the field? Long story short, I shot my first mule deer on that hunt. I found him while glassing with these binoculars, and I very likely wouldn't have found him if I were using an inferior set of optics. Watch this video to learn more.
The Santiam binoculars are significantly better than every other set I've ever used (and I try out some pretty good stuff). So, if you hunt animals that require glassing, do yourself a favor and buy a pair of BX-5 Santiam binoculars.
Trust me, you will not regret it.
