Good rangefinder for $100? Which one do you recommend?


This was dropped off at my doorstep on Monday...ohhunt Rangefinders 800M

I use a program called Huntstand. It's a great tool and am glad to say I've been able to add some input over the last two years. It's for mobile and PC, has handy calculators for measuring lines, point to point and areas.

It's been invaluable for me hunting with different parties and managing multiple areas.

I used google map to set up my range in my backyard. Measured from my area where I shoot, to different locations. I got cops of trees at 40,60, 80M, Have to setup a 10, 25M marker.

Plus you can range find with a AO scope.

Like I said about the chrony app. App still doesn't replace the tool that was made for it.

If Im out in the woods, my cell phone is encase I get loss, or injured to call. Not going to waste data on range finding. When you can get a range finder for like 100$. I used it once, because I got loss walking around in the woods around my place. Cell phones randomly shut down when battery gets weakened, or weathered. I rather use it for what its intended to do.

You can find people selling bushnell ones on hunting sites for around 100. I think they're only 160 new.

I use a Vortex 1000 - seems to work very well and checks out nicely. However, it was more than $100.00.

Some of the archery range finders might work OK with air guns, I guess. Seems to me they are less expensive.

One of the guys (X mil.) set up the 1,000 meter target stand site on that range, using Google Earth.

His 1000 meter location was out (over) by close to 80 meters. For shorter distances, the accuracy should be much better, but his 'spotting' was just about 10%.

Now- I am not saying google maps is useless for range finding - it is quite possible this lad screwed up his locations and measurements.
