I have trawled through a fair few threads but not really managed to get my answer so I have posted but apologise if this has been covered many times.
I have a pair of Miranda 7-21x42 bin's left me in a relative's will. (I didn't get the £350,000 he gave to a charity or I wouldn't be asking this question )
Clearly they are old (I'm guessing '70's) but wondered if they would be suitable for stalking. (I haven't had chance to go out with them yet, I am a newbie hoping to get out on local fields and woodland where distances would be a couple of fields at most I'm guessing?
What sort of range in UK would most stalkers expect to pick up an animal before setting off to close in on it or monitor its behaviour? This distance is far less than the open highlands I'm guessing? - maybe I should start a second thread for this?
If I'm choosing a pair, what are the things I am looking for?
If I know what to look for before I go out I can assess them. I'll then pop into my local store and ask to look through some current models.
