Rangefinders for hunting: There are currently several dozen handheld rangefinders on the market, most can be broke down into three main categories: Hunting, Golf, and Survey. Hunting rangefinders are obviously designed for the hunter, but there is a great amount of diversity in the selection of these rangefinders as there are several sub categories within the Hunting rangefinder segment.

They are commonly used to scout or reconnaissance an area, find military targets and aid soldiers and other active duty personnel during missions. However, militaristic rangefinders are often more sophisticated than those used in the consumer market, and they’re often combined with computers and other military technology.

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.

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!

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.

While many of these rangefinders designed for rifle hunting do a scan mode, many lack an angle compensation feature that is found on a lot of other hunting rangefinders. Some of these models are also of a flatter design and are held horizontally like binoculars, instead of vertically like a monocular. This enables the hunter to hold the unit steady easier for long range targeting.

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.

The are generally capable of ranging targets at several hundred yards, and often have features that are favored by both rifle and bow hunters, such a target priority modes and a scan mode. Many of these units also have both a "bow" and "rifle" mode which allows the user to select which mode best fits their current hunting situation.

The laser beam is then reflected off that object and back to the laser rangefinder instrument. The rangefinder then uses a super high speed clock to determine the amount of time it took for the laser to bounce back and then uses a mathematical equation to calculate the amount of distance between the rangefinder and the target object. The whole process is called "Time of Flight" in scientific terms.

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.
