Carbon Score: 8.5

Hawke Optics shared a great lineup of new products with the Turkey hunter, Crossbow user, and all-around outdoorsman in mind. The Vantage IR 1-4x Turkey Dot Scope is great for turkey hunting and has a 4-inch eye relief with a magnified turkey optics and favorable reticle (best seen on their website). Their Frontier Laser Range Finding Binoculars (8×42, 10×42) stood out for multiple reasons but mainly because for the price point, it seemed to be the highest valued binocular we had yet seen on the show floor. It had 6 levels of brightness to accommodate ranging from 1,968 yards (8x model) to 2,515 yards (10x model). Waterproof and fog proof, it is a no brainer for any outdoorsman in search of a new pair of range finding binos. Lastly was the Crossbow Scope; the XB30 2-7×30 wide angle, compact zoom with illuminated reticle with a locking speed adjuster ring to ensure that the FPS is not changed once zeroed. At just $249, this proves to be the perfect fit for almost any crossbow optic upgrade. As with all Hawke Optics products, the buyer can enjoy the Hawke No-Fault Lifetime Warranty.
