    8x binos ... recommendations for my kid and during archery elk

    So I have a nice pair of binos but they are larger and heavier.

    The girls are starting to get into birds so I thought I'd try to find them a pair of 8x30 or 8x32 binos.
    I'd like use the binos during archery season.

    Any good bang for your buck binos out there in your opinion? Athlon? Vortex? Nikon ...

    If you have a used pair to sell, please send me a PM.

    Thank you.

    I have a Sightron Sll 8X32 Blue Sky that I keep in the truck and also use when out hiking the dogs. I picked them up on a Black Friday sale for around $250. After a quick search it looks like you can still pick them up sub $300 in Canada. I’m Really pleased with the bang for buck I got with these little guys.

    Take them shopping, all the stats in the world won't tell you how they fit. If they aren't intuitive they won't use them. I have a pair of Minox 8x42 I bought for my daughter, she can't use them as they don't fit her face well. Good glass, but!!
    Take a kid hunting its more rewarding than shooting an animal yourself!!
