Default Optics for One Eyed Bowhunter

I'm new to bowhunting and I'm researching optic options. I'm blind in one eye. I don't want to pay that much money for something I can only use half of. What would you do for optics if you only had one eye?

Thank you for any and all help!

There are some decent monoculars out there (including some from high end companies like Ziess and Leica), though the objective lens tends to run smaller than what's available on binoculars. Find a decent one for around the neck carry and then a spotting scope with low end power for serious glassing.

Also, some of the range finders have decent optics that might serve the dual purpose for you.

Best bang for the buck for one eye use is the ZenRay 8x42 monocular. I have no ties to this vendor. Kind of late on this for this fellow.
