    I'll use a cam with a combined 80x to keep from having to set up a spotting scope, but that's if I already feel its something not worth wasting time on or early in season

    Here's an example: 1400yds on a deer that wouldn't keep his head out of the sage. Once he lifted it snapped a quick pic to be able to kick around score in my head while looking for something else (with binocs)

    I have taken some heat at times over on the backcountry thread on this forum for being "dangerous" when it comes to going lightweight. Im not a big fan of taking shelters for the most part, I eat less than 1600 clories per day, and I am careful with how I ration water, however, in my humble opinion this is just plain stupid. A camera can not and will not ever reaplace my binos. I now have a Nikon dslr camera, but it could never hold a torch to what a competent person can do with some decent glass in hand. And to say an animal that can't be seen without binos is too far away to kill... Really? I have on several occasions killed animals that I couldn't see without binos. Just because you can't kill them that hour doesn't mean they won't bite the dust later in your hunt. Using a camera to your advantage is one thing, leaving your glass at home for a point and shoot camera is idiotic.
