Laser rangefinders in particular, being not nearly as old, have only become popular to the average person in the last 20 years or so. They have been used by commercial and military operations for some time now, but these models were typically too big and heavy, and way too much for the average person to use on a day to day basis, not to mention they are much too expensive for the average person to afford.

That is more than close enough for the average person and their needs, but this may not be good enough for commercial engineering or military use. For this, it is better to use GPS range finding techniques and triangulation equations.

Archery Rangefinders: These rangefinders are generally designed for ranging animals at close distances as shots over 100 yards are not needed by bow hunters. Often times these units will have a lower magnification to help the user range the animal faster at close range. Many archery hunters prefer to have some sort of angle compensation feature on their rangefinders, especially those that hunt from tree stands as these models will also factor in the angle of the shot, which can affect where the archer aims. Optics maker Leupold has recently introduced a unique archery rangefinder that mounts directly to your bow and can be utilized at full draw; however; this device is not legal for hunting purpose in all states.

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.

So, if you are an avid bow hunter but do not yet own a laser rangefinder, then I challenge you to take my little test mentioned above and, I believe that if you will do so, you will find that you too can greatly benefit from owning a laser rangefinder. In addition, while there are numerous different makes and models of laser rangefinders on the market today, you should definitely take the time to search out the few models that are specifically designed for archers since they incorporate features such as "Clearshot" by Bushnell that are clearly designed to enhance the units usefulness to bow hunters.

Hunters that will be stayed in the woods overnight need to take a great deal of supplies with them. Therefore, rangefinders for hunting need to be small so that they do not take up too much room in the pack. Likewise, you don’t want the device to add too much extra weight to your load.

When you are out in the woods for an extended period, you never know what type of weather you will be exposed to. Devices can be costly, and you don’t want them to be ruined by rain and other adverse conditions. The same is true if you accidentally dropped your rangefinder near a puddle of water. Rangefinders for hunting offer you many benefits when it comes to making a kill. Not all of them offer the same benefits, however, so you must know what to look for when purchasing a rangefinder. Size and weight are important considerations if you want to be able to carry this gadget properly. A camo finish will allow you to sneak up on your prey without being detected. Waterproof hunting rangefinders are also a good choice so that your device is not damaged in the rain.

To delve deeper, laser rangefinders typically use three different lenses: the viewfinder, the main camera lens and the reflector lens. When using the rangefinder, you look through the viewfinder and the main lens is responsible for gathering light to help the device focus. The third lens overlays the target on the viewfinder so you can pinpoint your target. When you press the button on the electronic rangefinder, a laser shoots out from the rangefinder and towards your target. The laser bounces off your target and gets sent back to the rangefinder, which immediately calculates the distance between you and it.

Laser Rangefinders have many different uses and applications and have become necessary equipment for different types of people specializing in different activities. Fact is that everybody that uses a rangefinder knows how easy they are to use and how beneficial they can be, although the actual dynamics of laser rangefinders and how rangefinders work is understood very little by those who actually use them. Rangefinders seem like quite confusing contraptions at first, but once you have an understanding about how rangefinders work, you will find they are quite simple.

However, it is important to be aware that there are several different types of laser range finders on the market today designed for different purposes such as hunting, golfing, surveying, and forestry. Thus, as a bow hunter, you should make certain to choose a model that is specifically designed for archery. For instance, Leupold, Nikon, and Bushnell all produce archery specific models of laser rangefinders in a wide range of prices. Also, when choosing a laser rangefinder, you should be aware that they have different "priority" mode functions for different purposes. For instance, some rangefinders read the first object in their line of sight (called First Priority Mode) whereas, others ignore the first object and range past it to the object behind it (called Second Priority Mode). Therefore, rangefinders that range objects in First Priority Mode are particularly useful when you have an unobstructed view of the target but, rangefinders that operate in Second Priority Mode are of far more use when you have intervening brush and trees between you and your target. Furthermore, it should be noted that in addition to operating in either First Priority Mode or Second Priority Mode, many laser rangefinders are available with additional modes such as Automatic Range Compensation (ARC) or Horizontal Mode and San Mode. In fact, the ARC or Horizontal Mode is particularly useful when hunting in steep terrain because it automatically calculates the correct distance to a target at both inclining and declining angles and thus, it provides an accurate distance measurement even when aiming uphill or downhill. Whereas, Scan Mode, as the name implies, enables the hunter to range the distance of multiple objects by holding down the Scan button and then moving the rangefinder back and forth across the viewing area.

As you line up to take your next shot you will find out the distance to the next bunker in a matter of seconds. It will also give you an accurate measure between you and the flag giving you a great advantage when you choose your clubs.

This feature sets the hunting type of this tool from other types, such as golf rangefinders. It is important that your clothing, pack, and devices blend in with your surroundings so that you do not give yourself a way. There would be nothing worse than to come up on a large animal, only to scare it away when light glares off your rangefinder. Check out the controls on the rangefinder. You want something that will be easy to use once you are in the woods and need it to work. Test out two or three models and brands, and choose the one that you feel will offer you the best use.
