One piece of equipment every hunter needs in their bag is a good pair of binoculars. All of us here on the Backwoods crew use Hawke brand binoculars and scopes religiously. But a good tip is to not just use your optics while you are hunting, but also carry them with you during the off season too. I use mine a lot in preseason scouting while looking at deer or turkeys around the farm but also use them for checking out treetops for acorns and persimmons. They come in handy to try and spot those big white oak and chestnut oak acorns up in the trees among the leaves where its usually pretty hard to spot them with a naked eye. Take your binos with you on those preseason scouting trips so you can find out which trees have the acorns in them and you’ll know where to put your stand. So give those Hawke Optics a look and happy scouting.
