I am not pointing a gun at something I do not intend to shoot.I used to carry binoculars to the hunting woods but found out it was a novelty item for me.
If I could not see it with my naked eyes I could get a good shot at it anyway.
I have a scope on my rifle if I need to glass an area.
And if I see something then I could quickly put the bead on it and drop it.
Binoculars are more weight I do not need to have.
