Yesterday evening I shot a stag with my 338 with the Vixen 2.5 - 10 x 50 scope on top. I glassed him with the Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 bino’s right on dark, and decided to take him with no time to spare.
I had no problem seeing him thru the scope, so I sat down and rested my elbows on my knees as he was a good 200 metres across a gully. Anyway, I hit him hard in the chest and he ro… ...

Just sending you a picture of a stag I harvested with the aid of my Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 binoculars. I was sitting on a ridge glassing semi open country when I spotted movement in a patch of tea tree 300m away. It was just before dark when I spotted it but I wasn’t sure what it was until the stag emerged from that thick patch of scrub into lighter cover. That’s when the Vixens defined him very clearly. I stalked to within about 100m and took the shot from my 300 Win Mag. Due to lack of light I wasn’t able to find him until the next morning. His antlers measured an even 26 inches.

Just recently I bought a pair of Vixen Apex Pro 10 x 50 binoculars for my son Nick. I bought the excellent light weight aluminium tripod adapter for these binos and have used it to mount them on a mini tripod.
My son Nick and I have spent some time glassing sambar in low light with these binos. A few nights ago I was glassing with my Swarovski 8 x 50 whilst Nick was alongside me using his Vixen 10 x 50. We could both see a large sambar stag in very low light just before dark. I could see his antlers but I couldn’t see his tips, but Nick could count all his tips. I think this demonstrates how optically brilliant the Vixens really are. Read Full Story >>

Michael Hamilton - Vixen binocular reviews Success Story #8
Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 binos were the difference between not seeing and harvesting this magnificent 27 inch stag - Michael Hamilton's biggest yet.
After reading all the articles on glassing deer in the hunting mags I decided it was time to get on the band wagon. My first dilemma was what to buy. After several days research my son came up with Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42. All the reviews he found claimed Vixen Apex pro were a very high quality binocular at an incredibly good price.
The first thing I noticed when hunting with the Vixens is their ability to look right through the bush and pick up vivid detail. This is so important when hunting sambar in thick bush and poor light. Also hunting with binos slows down your pace - a big advantage in remaining undetected and seeing the sambar first.
On a recent trip I arrived early in the afternoon and headed up the gully. This gully had good feed down on the flats and thick bush up high in the hills. With the wind in my face I slowly worked my way up the gully contouring the flats about 100m up … Read Full Story >>

Hi Errol, I just wanted to tell you how good Vixen binos are.
I shot my first red deer today. I looked through some very dark shaded forest for about 10 minutes but didn’t see anything.
Then I raised my Vixen 10 x 50’s and in about 30 seconds I saw 2 red deer about 100m away in the dark scrub. There was no way I could have seen them without Vixens. I also spotted fallow out to 1km away in the tree line. My Vixen 10 x 50 are definitely the best piece of hunting equipment I have purchased.
Ergonomically the Vixens are fantastic which enabled me to steady them with one hand as most of the time I carry my rifle in one hand and use my binos with the other. It rained heavily during the first two days of my hunt and I was totally saturated -including my binos - but they performed flawlessly. I highly recommend them to any one after high end optics, as they have amazing clarity and are rugged with out the high price tag.

After comparing Vixen 8 x 42 and his Leica Ultravid 8 x 42 binos in low light whilst looking for sambar, Paul Cavalieri quietly stated – “I can’t see any difference between them.
Bill Wilson - Vixen binocular reviews Success Story #5
Recently my 3 mates and I attended Errol Mason’s Hunt Smart training course where I compared most of the top brands of binoculars whilst actually looking for sambar in low light. To my surprise I found the Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 were actually superior to the Kahles 8 x 42. I was so impressed I am going to buy a pair.

My father-in-law Jerry D’Silva, brother-in-law Jermaine D’Silva and Don Piccoli attended Errol Mason’s Hunt Smart training course where we compared Leica 8 x 42, Swarovski 8 x 50, Kahles 8 x 42, Bushnell Elite2 10 x 42, Vortex 10 x 42 and Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42. We were all pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Vixen’s which Jerry and I found to be better than the Kahles 8 x 42.
Josh Bromilow - Vixen binocular reviews Success Story #3
One of the reasons I attended Errol Mason’s Hunt Smart training course was for the optics comparison as I am in the market for a pair of binoculars. After comparing Leica, Swarovski, Kahles, Bushnell and Browning the decision was easy. I decided I will be buying Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 because their performance was simply amazing.
Chris Kinsella - Vixen binocular reviews Success Story #2
Shortly before dark, I spotted the shadowy shape of this stag’s head as he stood motionless, looking, listening and scenting concealed in dogwood on a ridge top 800m above me. Without my Vixen Apex 10 x 42’s, I couldn’t see him.

Glassing with my Vixen Apex 10 x 42’s at the crack of first light I spotted this fine stag at the base of some giant eucalypts 150 metres away. Seconds later he fell to a fine piece of marksmanship by Chris Kinsella.
