Scroll down to the Open Box Special. For the price you're not going to find a better pair of binocs. I got a pair and am very pleased with them. They are comparable to my fiance's Nikon Monarch's but a lot cheaper. They are a little heavy, and the color is not my favorite but for the price I will take it!

A little out of my wife's price range, but I'm sure that's a good deal. I like your pink bow though!

The bottom line with optics....get the best you can afford and need, based on what type of hunting you do. I have seen and used alot...most easterners don't need a $1500 pair of Swarovski's...though they are the bomb. If you are out west and glassing is what you do, absolutely. I have two pairs that I use, an 8x25 Nikon Travelite V, and an 8x42 Nikon Monarch. The travelites are compacts, but very clear - really nice. Super lightweight and small, I actually use mine alot. You just suffer in low light as with any compact. But for around $100, they are a great buy. The Monarchs are top notch, especially for the $. They are in the $300-$350 range now I think...well worth the money.

Not sure about your price range...but one thing I can guarantee....you WON'T get a decent set if you are only looking to spend $50-75. Anyone that says so, has never looked through a nice optic. Good luck.

Check out vortex ,bass pro has them. they are compared to sarvorski...and they are top of the line you and top price.....vortex are afordable and can see for a county mileor two or three. best for the price and binocular will help your hunting. everthing will change when hunting u will serprive them instead of them sneaking up on you.vortex is the way to go i have the diamondback 8x42 and they get better the stronger and steader you get.

I googled the bushnell permafocus binos after a recommendation on this thread and the price is great: $50 - $60 range. I'm not looking for anything hardcore. Just a pair of binos to use while on stand or in a blind. I'm sure the upper shelf binos are a wonder to the eye, but that isn't a practical purchase for me.

you cant go wrong with them....as soon as mine break or i loose them I will buy another. Bushnells customer service on them is great also. I had a eyecup rubber tear and they sent me one to replace the tore one and one extra no questions asked. I didnt have proof of purchase or anything.

Check out the compact Vortex Hurricane. They are lightweight, bright, clear and not real expensive. $150+-
I wear glasses and they have plenty of eye relief so I don't have to take off my glasses to view.

I wouldnt recommend auto focus binos. Alot of times you get twig /leave or something infront of you it was screw up the focus. I use to have some. I didnt like them. Good Luck

I bought some nikon action 10x22x50 binoculars before deer season and I love them. You can zoom in close on a deer or stay farther out and it has excellent lowlight quality. I can see things before the sun even comes up. And they are pretty cheap compared to most.
