With the rise of technology, hunting gear has gone through many changes and upgrades. One of the most important pieces of gear in your arsenal is your optics, namely your binoculars. No matter what animal you are hunting, a good pair of binoculars is essential to your success.

Hunting binoculars and birding binoculars are very different, however, and should not be confused. While it's true that just about any pair of binoculars can be used for either hobby, hunting binoculars need to be lightweight and easy to use. Since they are carried around all day, they must also be durable. Birding binoculars, on the other hand, are not generally carried around and can be much larger and heavier. They also do not need to be as durable. 

But that doesn’t mean that hunting binoculars are easy to pick out. There are plenty of different brands, models, and styles of binoculars out on the market today. So how do you select the right hunting binocular? Here are a few things to consider: 


The size of binoculars that you use is very important to consider. For hunting binoculars, they should be large enough to provide enough magnification but small enough to be portable and lightweight. You don’t want to be carrying around a giant pair of binoculars all day while out in the woods. Binoculars come in all shapes and sizes to choose from. 

Focus and Clarity

Clarity is extremely important in your binoculars. After all, what’s the point of using optics if you cannot properly see what you are looking at? Not all binoculars will be on an even playing field when it comes to clarity. Being able to focus your binoculars quickly and easily is also important to consider. There are a variety of different focusing mechanisms that you can choose from, and a good pair of hunting binoculars will have an adjustment and focus system that is easy to use. 

Extras and Features

Some binoculars do not come with any special or extra, while others come with a large number of extra features and accessories to make them even better. From extra coatings on the lens to accessories like lens covers and tripod threads, it is important to consider what features you need and want in your binoculars and find one that includes them. 

Of course, there are many other factors that you can consider when trying to select hunting binoculars but these three are among the most important. As long as you select binoculars that are the right size for your needs have great clarity and come with any extras or features that you need, you can rest assured that they will serve you well. 

Which Binoculars Should You Choose? 

So with so many options, where do you begin? Luckily there are some amazing companies that are now on the market that can provide you with binoculars that suit all three of the previous requirements that we discussed. Here at Eyeskey, we aim to do just that. While we produce many types of optics, our Captor ED series of binoculars are some of the best hunting binoculars out on the market today. 

The Captor ED series of binoculars features extra-low dispersion (ED) glass that provides you with a crystal clear view. The images it shows have RBG color correction and are some of the clearest glass that you can look through. In addition to the ED glass, the Captor series has the lens coated with FMC. This provides better light transmission and provides bright and vivid colors. 

To ensure that these binoculars provide you with a clear and bright image even during the darker hours of your hunt, it incorporates the index of BAK4 light which helps to avoid darkness around the outer edges of your view (something that most other binoculars suffer from). The Captor ED binoculars, however, are extremely bright no matter what lighting scenarios you find yourself in. 

Thanks to the technology in the lens, these binoculars provide you with the clarity and focus that you need from a great pair of hunting binoculars. You can adjust the focus with the easy-to-use handwheel adjustment found in the center. Even with heavy gloves on, this adjustment wheel is easy to find and use in order to focus the binoculars to whatever range you are looking at. 

All of these features are put together with a durable and lightweight magnesium alloy body. These binoculars are incredibly lightweight and almost indestructible. This is very important while out in the woods, as hunting binoculars will occasionally get dropped or bumped. If you use binoculars long enough, they will for sure take a tumble while out hunting. When you drop these binoculars, however, you can rest assured that they will take the fall in stride and keep you going like nothing happened. 

Lastly, the Captor ED series has plenty of extras and accessories that will improve your hunt. They all come equipped with lens caps for both ends of the binoculars, protecting them from any debris, dirt, or scratches while the binoculars are not in use. It also has a tripod thread in the center of the body to allow you to attach the binoculars to your favorite tripod for steady viewing.
