Because distance to your game is the most important piece of information in making an effectual shot, the use of a laser rangefinder will give you the confidence you need. Bow hunters have been using their rangefinders for years. They understand that the difference between 30 yards and 35 yards can make the difference between a success shot and or an unsuccessful hunt.

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.

When it comes to selecting one of the many laser rangefinders on the market, perhaps the first thing you want to look for is its potential range and application. Some rangefinders also use "modes" so that you can use it effectively in all kinds of terrain and weather. The potential range also varies as many are capable of accurately reporting the range of an object up to 2,000 or more yards. Whether you need one when you’re out golfing or are competing in an athletic, outdoor sport that allows you to use one, laser rangefinders can certainly be a huge advantage for any of these applications.

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.

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.

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

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 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.

A Golf rangefinder is a small device that will fit in your hand and will tell you the distance between you and another object. A rangefinder can either be a GPS-measuring unit measuring distance through satellite, a laser based rangefinder which uses objects to bounce a laser of to get an accurate measure of the distance to that object, or a telescope which uses a "line" to measure the distance to an object.

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.

Some brands may indeed be better than other however the technology is almost always the same. That said, some brands, even though they are using the same technology may have better control over manufacturing or may be using higher quality components. So you will need to do some research to find out which brands you feel comfortable with. But do not get yourself tied up with having to have a certain brand, you may save money or even get a better rangefinder with a brand you never heard of, remember even the big boys had to start somewhere.

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.
