What do y'all that hunt West of the Mississippi use to spot the grand old bird?

Something in 8x32 config, either an 8x30 Swaro SLC, or Leupold Mojave.

6x or 8x bins with a wide field of view and good low light performance

In New York the hours are dawn till noon so it won't take much to see birds. Just about anything will work.

It seems hearing them is as important as seeing them. Over the past few years the boys seem to be increasingly quiet. Not sure if that's pressure related or not.

Price range less than $500. I'm looking at the Mojave and also the Monarch 7 right now. Kinda wanting to try 10x, but it's probably too much I guess.

Peddler, if you're like me that quietness might relate to aging ears. I can't hear them fly down anymore for one. And taking a young fella with me has them scratching their head on how I manage to kill any when I can't hear half the gobbles they do.

I use 10x42 daily and think they would work well for your needs. They aren't as good in the lowest of light like my 7x42. But, is low light performance needed for turkey?
I think that Monarch 7 would be a good choice for the money https://swfa.com/nikon-10x42-monarch-7-binocular.html

Well, I ordered the Mojaves because I'd rather deal with Leupold if I have a problem. Went with 10x42s just 'cause I wanted it. I have a pair of 8x40s already. 


Binoculars are not generally needed for turkey in the Southeast. If you can see the bird, it can see you lowering the binoculars, so I never bother with them. From what I understand, spotting turkeys or their roosts in OK or KS is helpful. Low light shouldn't be too much of an issue, but I don't really know yet. I will find out next Spring!
