You want to purchase the rangefinder with the most value for your money - more useful features at a reasonable price coupled with durability.

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.

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.

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.

They’re manufactured by Opti-Logic, LaserTechnology, Newcon Optik, Nikon and Bushnell, just to name a few. As there are naturally many choices, you first need to know how an electronic rangefinder works to help you select the best one for your needs.

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.

Then, its use was limited to a few professionals and amateurs with money to spare. But as with all things in golf and in life, rangefinders eventually became an essential part of a golfer’s arsenal to shoot the ball into the hole.

Hunters can use electronic rangefinders to calculate shot distance to deer, elk or other game. Golfers use rangefinders to determine the distance to the golf ball, which can help them select a club. Hikers and mountain climbers use laser rangefinders to map the best route.

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.

These are costs necessary to keep the rangefinder in useful condition including the easy availability of maps about the golf courses in your area. Your considerations will include the features in each type of rangefinder. As you probably know by now, there are two basic types - lasers and global positioning system (GPS).

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.
