Since laser rangefinders bounce the laser off the target, and because all targets have a certain reflectivity, part of the distance the rangefinder calculates is based on this reflective nature of the target. In other words, "hard" objects like rocks and cliffs can be easily measured at greater distances than "soft" targets like deer or other wildlife.
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!
Today we will talk about just how a laser rangefinder functions. The distance to an objective is calculated by a rangefinder by the rebounding of a laser light beam off the object to be ranged. The time it takes for the laser light beam to reach the target and return is measured by a high speed digital clock. This time that commonly takes less than one second, is then computed by the rangefinder and displayed as a distance on the rangefinders build in screen.
