What type of binoculars is best for hunting?

Some informal industry surveys suggest that 40% of all binoculars that are sold in the United States are sold to hunters. The most popular style of binoculars sold are 10×42 mm. What is so special about 10×42 mm binoculars? Deer are most active at dawn or dusk, so brightness is critical. Full-sized 10×42 mm binoculars gather more light than their compact counterparts, so 10×42 mm binoculars are an obvious choice. They are ideal for hunting because of their superior light-gathering capabilities.
