I have a pair of Nikon Monarch 10x42's. I learned the hard way scouting ducks. Great eye relief and crystal clear image. Nitrogen filled. Fantastic eye relief for those of us with 4 eyes.

We hunted Mulie's out west which required endlesss hours of glassing canyons and huge draws. I was the only guy in our party that didn't have a headache. I liked them so much that I hawked my butt again and bought a Nikon spotting scope.

Regardless of the brand you choose, buy the best pair you can possibly afford.

Save money somewhere else, but dont cheat on binos. They are a critical piece of gear for any hunter.

If you can afford better, Nikon is Japan junk.

Check page 2 of this thread for a description of the Leupold Yosemite binos. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5672831

Also my nephew has had the Oberwerk 8x32 for a few years and he really likes them. Made in China by a former Chinese military supplier but pretty decent quality lenses. The focus mechanism isn't as smooth as some of the pricier binos and the fit and finish isn't as nice, but the image is pretty good. http://www.bigbinoculars.com/srpseries.htm
