Vortex Talon HD 10×42 Binocular: For an inexpensive binoculars for hunting you will not find a better deal than the these. With high density (HD), extra low dispersion glass, it is doubtful that you will find a clear, more scratch resistance set of binoculars in this price
range. In fact there are a lot of factors that help to make these the best in their class. The field of view of almost 350 feet at 1000 yards is almost unheard of for a 10 power, 42mm objective binocular in any price range.
Vortex entered the optics market by offering a mid priced product with the clarity and design, amongst other features, of the high priced European models, but at a third of the price. The Vortex Talon, at the time of this writing, is their newest model, so I have not even been able to field test it yet, but looking through them and feeling the design quality, it was not a hard decision to put these at the top pick in their price range. Go to the link below to read the specs, you will be amazed at all these binoculars have to offer for the price, making them the best binoculars for hunting under $500.
