The Best New Hunting Optics for 2014

The Best New Hunting Optics for 2014

The theme of this year's SHOT Show seemed to be tactical — the bulk of guns, optics and ammunition were dedicated to tactical applications. But binoculars and rangefinders were a little different. There seemed to be no set theme, and as a result companies introduced new and innovative models they believe will address the needs of sportsmen and shooters in the year ahead.

Some of the newest binoculars and rangefinders at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas are ultra-compact, while others are larger and more capable than ever. Some new designs are elaborate and expensive, pushing technological boundaries and incorporating new engineering and machining techniques.

Others are simple, affordable and familiar. No matter what your needs, skill level or budget — whether you're a tactical shooter, bowhunter or simply enjoy watching nature — we've got the perfect new hunting optics for you.
