Full Rangefinder Guide

When you’re out looking for a trophy buck and finally stumble on one, you don’t want to leave your shot to chance. It could be the only shot you get to take the whole day, so don’t let your trophy run away because you misjudged distance and shot too low. Getting a quality rangefinder will help you avoid that frustrated feeling you get when you mess up your shot and your trophy gets away.

Everyone has guidelines for what will make a good rangefinder, but when you’re crouched in the brush and there’s a trophy white tail buck nearby, you want to take the best shot possible. A big part of that is knowing how far away you are from your target. Some of the rangefinders in the list also calculate the anticipated distance the shot will travel based on the angle that the animal is headed, or the slope of the hill (up or down) that the animal be on. Angle and slope calculation can sometimes be difference between hauling something back to the truck and a story of getting so close and coming home with nothing after a near miss. No one wants that, and that’s where the rangefinder comes in.

The chart below lists more than 40 different rangefinders that you can choose from. There are a lot of rangefinders to choose from, but we are here to help you get the best information possible. The table below in our handy rangefinder guide has the following characteristics:
