This measurement is at times made more difficult by many variables. Rivers, hills, trees, rocks, and other land marks often interfere with your depth sensing, even short distances can be difficult to gauge. The correct shot distance can be ascertained by the use of a rangefinders, there by helping the hunter to measure out his shot.
If you are one of those lucky archers who just happen to live near a local 3D archery range and who get to shoot often, then you may be one of those rare hunters with superior range estimation skills. However, for the average archer who does not get to shoot nearly as often as he would like, range estimation skills vary widely from person to person. In fact, I urge you to challenge your own range estimation skills by noting and observing a stationary object in your yard from a given vantage point and then, estimate its distance until you are certain that you have ranged it correctly. Then, when you are absolutely certain that you know how exactly far away it is, then actually measure the distance and I will be willing to bet that you will find that your estimate was incorrect! Therefore, the large majority of bow hunters could definitely benefit from employing a laser rangefinder when hunting!
Last, it should be noted that all laser rangefinders feature a reticle (the crosshair or other type of aiming point you see when looking through your rangefinder). However, many rangefinders use LCD readouts with reticles that appear as black lines that you superimpose over the target you want to range but, this type of reticle if often difficult to distinguish against a dark background or in low light conditions. Therefore, other rangefinders have illuminated, LED, reticles as well. However, even though the brightness of the LEDs is adjustable (sometimes automatically), in bright conditions, it can be overwhelmed by the ambient light and thus it cannot be seen even at the highest settings and yet, in the evening when your eyes are accustomed to the lower light levels, the reticle is often so bright that it impairt your night vision even when set to the lowest settings. Also, this same issue pertains to the other information displayed on your screen such as yardage numbers and modes. Therefore, the best option is to choose a rangefinder with a backlight screen which gives you the capability to view your information in all light conditions.
