Re: range finders

Most any of the name brand rangers are adequate and will give you all the accuracy needed for archery and rifle season.I have a Nikon and I absolutely "DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!"

Re: range finders

Go to a big store like Bass Pro or Cabelas and look at many models...If you have none close try a cheaper Leupold model...Try to find a used one at half price...They are nice.

Re: range finders

I have to chime in, I went and bought the new Bushnell Arc 1600's binoculars w/ range finder built in for my african trip and you talk about awesome! the aren't cheap but depending on type of use you want them for they are invaluable to have everything in one unit.

Re: range finders

I love my Nikon. It's older, before the angle compensation. I think it's a Monarch 880? Great piece of equipment. Saves the guesswork and works fairly well in brush and ranges right through the mesh netting of ground blinds. Not great in low light, but good enough for sure.

Re: range finders

I just purchased a Leupold RX 1000. I did not get the angle finding model because I dont feel that I need it. The red display is very easy to see against dark targets and in lower light.

Re: range finders

I have two,first a Leica 800 that I ave used out west. It worked on bright clear mountain days at it's full range my friends other range finders couldn't read much further than 300 yards. Thought I lost it pulled the house apart then bought a Leupold 600rx much smaller and lighter great for Pa deer hunting. By the way I eventually found the Leica,my Wife had put it"where it belongs"
