When I bow hunted I used bino's,not to see what size of Bull or elk,but just to see them and know what direction to go or plan of attack.See I like to get out front of them and call back to the herd.With out my bino's I would not know if there are elk in front of the bull in the timber.Now once I'm set up they would come off,not interfear with my draw or my release.We would use a two man system and put one guy 60-70 yards to the L-R of the herd position and the other back slightly another 20-30 yds behind that guy and both cow call and bugle back to the elk.Now I would watch the forest floor looking for hoves and sound.I can't hunt with out binoc's,Sorry I might as well leave my boots home than my optics.

Nut, thanks to your vidieo I got this year we can do that and when I blow it I can blame it on my instructor.
This year when hunting the slopes of the missouri river the cliffs are quite high over looking meadows and I noticed what I thought was a herd of elk on the fringes of an aspen hammock, It must of been a quarter of a mile but I grabbed my binos from my pack and rubbed the dust from the lenses and glassed the herd and found out it was a herd of dairy cows as it was a free roaming grass range. I would of hated to waste a day stalking jersey cows if I didn't have them.
BBJ, I went through downtown Moccasin during rush hour and waved at ya but you didn't wave back.

Moccasin traffic during rush hour can be a pretty rough experience....been through there many times myself. Actually, I thought that was an old Montana ghost town until I saw BBJ posting on here!

Watch the bino jokes now!!! You don't need them. Just bugle like a herd bull and I'm sure he'll come a running!!!! <grin>
