The magnification typically ranges between 5 and 8 power. The quality of the optics will vary with the quality of the rangefinder, and again the more expensive models offer far superior optics clarity and magnification than do the cheap 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.

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.

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.

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.

The rangefinder will tell you how far you hit the ball and with time you will learn like a professional golfer what club to use under a particular set of circumstances. If you decide to add a rangefinder to your golf equipment I can promise you that will not be something you are going to regret - if your truly serious about improving your game. You will use it on most holes and you will most likely become addicted to your rangefinder, it will be like having your own - cheap version - of your personal caddy.

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 had to do more guessing and prediction in order to trap their prey and have food for their family. Today many devices can make hunting easier. Rangefinders for hunting allow you to know exactly where you stand in relation to the animal you are trying to snag. Knowing the distance between you and your prey lets you know when you can go in for the kill. When it comes to hunting rangefinders, not all of them are created equal. You must know what you are looking for when you purchase this tool. Having a rangefinder on hand when you venture into the woods helps give you an advantage over your prey, and being equipped with the right type of gadget will make it easier to get your kill.

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.

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.

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.
