We are but humans, no more, no less. Even though our eye is a miraculous nature’s creation that can distinguish between a million colors, it has its limits. We are said to notice a candle flame standing in total darkness from as far as 1.6 miles. Is it a good result? Probably. Does this come up very often? Probably not. As we age, our sight becomes less sharp. Some people are born with vision impairments. Our vision is an elaborate, but imperfect gift.
For thousands of years, humans have been observing animals, trying to somehow acquire their outstanding abilities. We’ve invented planes to fly like birds; diving fins and aqualungs to swim like fish. Did we manage to come up with something to see like eagles? Yes, we did.
Optical devices process light waves to either enhance an image or determine its properties. Telescopes were the first optical instruments used for the magnification of distant objects. Humanity invented many other optical devices within the last centuries, all fit for different purposes. We can’t think of a situation where you would need a microscope during hunting, that’s why we offer you a selection of bigger and more portable devices that you can make use of when hunting and shooting.
If you are interested in long-range shooting, a scope is an absolute must. This is a magnifying optical device that is mounted right on your rifle. The lens is its main element, as it determines the magnifying capabilities of the scope. Bigger lenses let more light in, improving your vision in low-light conditions, while also adding more weight. Another thing to consider is the type of mount, as the scope is no good if it is incompatible with your rifle.
Spotting scopes offer you the advantages of a telescope with lesser bulk and price while having higher magnification than binoculars and monoculars. A spotting scope is a middle ground everyone’s looking for. They are equally valuable for hunters, bird-watchers, and night-sky observers.
Not everyone pursues hunting or has enough space to pack a spotting scope with them. When camping in picturesque areas, having a pair of binoculars might allow you to witness even more scenic views. Binoculars come in a variety of sizes, big and small, with different magnification power.
If you are a long-range target shooter or a hunter, willing to know the exact distance to your prey, a rangefinder will be of great help.
Gun sights usually don’t offer any magnification and thus cannot be called full-fledged optical devices. Despite that, they are still helpful when shooting is involved, making the target acquisition process easier and faster. We have several types of sights to meet your needs.
Even though optical devices are reinforced with durable bodies to prevent easy breakage, lenses are fragile and need proper care and protection. We offer you cases and scope covers to protect your optics and cleaning tools to keep them neat. If you are a spotting scope owner, you might want to look at our selection of tripods to mount your device for more comfortable usage. We also have more narrowly focused accessories to serve your specific needs.
Here, on Gritr Outdoors, we have a collection of best hunting optics that will assist you on your every hunting trip. Shooting optics, sport optics, accessories, you name it, we have it all.
