Now that Deer season is in full swing, your hunter is out utilizing all their equipment. How are their binoculars? Do they still have the same pair as when they were young? Perhaps it is time to treat yourself or leave some hints for love ones to pick you up the pair you want.
Here are a few questions you may want to ask:
What is your budget?
What will they/you be using them for?
The binoculars that we sell here at Bass Pro Shop are not just for hunters. People use binoculars for all different reasons. Hunting, Bird Watching, Hiking, Sporting Events, Sightseeing, Boating, Concerts, Star Gazing, and more.
Did you know that with a basic pair of binoculars, you can see up to 3000 stars? When you decide to stop in and look at the binouclars, ask any one of our associates in the hunting department to direct you to the right one to fit your need and wallet.
Perhaps you are looking for binoculars for the first time hunter. The Bass Pro Shop Rubber Armor Binoculor-Porro Prism is a great gift idea. Durable with rubber armor finish, a wide angle design these are great for outdoor activities.

A little more expensive around $100 is the Leupold Rogue Binoculars. These binoculars have a easy focus with a oversized focus knob for anyone who may have a little arthritis. A great price for waterproof, lightweight and compact binoculars, their field of view is 1000 yards.
