Rangerfinder Frequently Asked Questions
What are the best hunting rangefinders?
Between the dim-lit hours when animals are most active, deep timber, and dark hunting blinds, one of the best features on hunting rangefinders is illuminated readouts. Other features that the best hunting rangefinders have include a compact design, rubberized grip for handling and durability, and angle compensation for hunting in steep country or from a treestand.
What is the price range for a rangefinder?
Quality rangefinders can range anywhere from under $100 to more than $1,000. You can expect to pay between $150 and $300 for a good hunting rangefinder, and if you want a top-end model, you can expect to pay around $500.
Are rangefinders worth it for hunting?
Whether you're archery or rifle hunting, rangefinders are one of the most useful tools you can carry. A mistake of only a few yards in judging distance while archery hunting can be the difference between a hit, a miss, or, even worse, a bad hit that wounds the animal. When rifle hunting, it's extremely difficult to judge distances beyond a couple hundred yards, and once you exceed 200 yards, most bullets begin to drop rapidly.
What are hunting rangefinders used for?
Suppose you're deer hunting, and you've spotted a buck some distance away. A rangefinder will tell you exactly the distance to your target so you can make a clean, efficient kill. Since gravity plays on bullets and arrows, knowing the exact distance to your target is imperative to making a good shot.
What is a rangefinder camera?
This is a little different from a typical rangefinder specifically used for sporting or hunting applications. A rangefinder camera is a camera fitted with a rangefinder. This increases the field of view from the narrower camera lens and improves the accuracy and focus of the camera.
