    Other Uses of Binoculars

    Binoculars are a valued tool because they let you see details up close from a long distance and can be a benefit for those who are in to outdoor hobbies and adventures. Aside from hunting, a pair of besthunting binocular can be very useful in other situations. Here is a list of other uses of binoculars:

    Zoom lens for your phone

    If you want to add more zoom to your smart phone’s camera, you can use your binoculars for that. Most smart phones come with an auto-focus feature, making it possible to capture something from afar with your binoculars. All you have to do is hold the camera lens of your smart phone in the eyepiece of your binocular and then wait for the image to focus. Take note that this will not be a professional-quality shot so manage your expectations.

    Fishing aid

    When you feel like every boat is catching fish except you, you can grab a pair of binoculars to see what kind of bait they are using. You can also use binoculars to spot schools of baitfish when you are in open water, or if you spot a flock of gulls from afar, you can see if they are harassing a group of fish or something else before heading your boat in that direction.

    Start a fire

    Most binoculars are made up of concave and convex lenses set in a tube so it actually is a microscope that is upside down. Remember how magnifying glasses can start fire? You can do the same by disassembling your binoculars and using the lens to start a fire.


    Ever want to see the night sky up close but you do not have the money for a telescope? You can use your binoculars to get a closer look at the stars.

    Do not let the best compact binoculars lay idle when hunting season is over. You can still carry them around with you and use them for other things.
