    Open country:

    Leupold FXII 6x36 fixed 6-power, with the fancy reticle having the different-range aiming hatches.

    Or, if he absolutely will not sleep at night unless he has some gawdawful huge objective lens, get the FXIII 6x42 fixed 6x.

    Mounts - get Talley Lightweights. No use fooling around with anything else, if you want strength and light weight. Get the Low rings, which are more like a medium from anyone else.

    Either option would be well under $600.

    I have monarch binoculars and love the quality.

    Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32 $340





    Lock it down with a set of Talley Lightweight rings for $40 from Midway and you are good to go for WAAAAY under your $600 limit. My recommendation is to take the $220 you saved and pick up some extra ammo to practice with.

    Look on Ebay and you can usually find a Swarovski AV 3-9x36 or Zeiss Diavari 3-9X36 for around 600.

    For less than that, the Nikon Monarch is in my opinion the way to go. I own Zeiss, Schmidt & Bender, Burris, and the Nikon and I feel it is second only to the S&B......Which will NEVER be topped.
