I am looking for a compact spotter for short day hikes for deer and bears. I am looking at the Leupold 15-30x50 spotter kit w/ tripod.

I already have a B&L Elite 20-60x70 spotter for sheep, goats and long range viewing, but it does get cumbersome when hiking logging slash and in high winds. Looking for something lite and easy to handle.

The compact will be for looking for blacktails in clearcuts and field judging BB. Max distance would be 6-700 y

Anybody have any experience with the leupold???

Cheers and thanks
