A friend of mine (but not on SD) recently bought a pair of the above. Last week whilst out after a roe buck as the light was fading, saw a buck and as it was coming towards him, pressed the range button on the deer when at just over 200 yds. As soon as he ranged it the deer took off barking. He was hidden in a hedge and the wind was in his favour. Anyway a couple of days later he came across the same buck again and this time he was only about 150 yds away but once again the same happened.
Is there anyone out there with these binos that has had a similar experience? He pointed the binos at me at close range and whilst I could see a dull red glow from the left tube, I would be surprised if a buck even at 100 yds would take any notice of it.
