While I'm sure they're not as good as Swarovski's, Zen-Ray's are better them most IMHO and pretty affordable.

I'd first ask what kind of hunting he expects to be doing?

More specifically... will he be able to mostly drive to within fairly close distance of his hunting locations?  


Will it be like in SoCal where they don't let you drive a car anywhere near where you want to go and thus you have to hike a long damn ways in?

If ya gotta hike in to it. 8x hand binos, together with a spotting scope. 
If its open desert though... I wouldnt' recommend the 11-33x50mm Vortex Razor spotter. It's only sharp up to like about 22x.  The light weight is great on that one though, and I like their fine focus knob.  For that Mohave kinda territory 15-45 or a 20-60 minimum.

If it's desert similar to the Mohave (think the 40 Fwy)... and your hearts set on binos... for that terrain... 20's... Totally!  

You can see for MILES unobstructed out there, once you get up the side of a hill a lil bit.
