Branka Perić. Rangefinder. April 26th , 2018.
Long ago, hunters did not have the tools and gadgets that are available nowadays. They had to do more guessing and prediction in order to trap their prey and have food for their family. Today many devices can make hunting easier. Rangefinders for hunting allow you to know exactly where you stand in relation to the animal you are trying to snag. Knowing the distance between you and your prey lets you know when you can go in for the kill. When it comes to hunting rangefinders, not all of them are created equal. You must know what you are looking for when you purchase this tool. Having a rangefinder on hand when you venture into the woods helps give you an advantage over your prey, and being equipped with the right type of gadget will make it easier to get your kill.
The typical rangefinder the average person will have the ability to use will range considerably less than what you will get out of the military issue models, but that is okay because the average person will not need near the capabilities. For most people 1000 yards will be more than enough range to get the job done. Most laser rangefinders available to the public these days are rated to range in excess of 1000 yards.
Though a particular rangefinder may say it is rated to a certain distance does not mean that is what you will get out of a rangefinder. The maximum distance rangefinders will work will be dependent on the intended object’s reflectivity and the current conditions. The maximum rated distance is what most manufactures put on the box and is figured in ideal conditions on a reflective object. On deer sized animals, you will be lucky to get 75% of the maximum range and less than ideal conditions will drop the effective range even more. This discrepancy is less with the more expensive models and greater with the less expensive models.
