I always used a pair of 10x binoculars. Easy to carry and worked good. If I could see a bull or cow with them it was still an hour or two walk.

I have a pair of 10X50 Fujinon binoculars that have a built in compass that you see when you look through them. I bought them when I kept boats on the Chesapeake bay. They are the clearest binocs I have ever looked through. They are heavy but they would do the job for you on an elk hunt, a front carry binoc harness would help with the weight o large binocs

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I bought these last year. Comes with case and tripod. Good deal.
