Who uses a range finder and what kind?
Don't leave on a hunting trip without it, Nikon Prostaff 550. Don't use it for 3D though.
I'm a Lefty
2011 Martin Ridge Hunter
2012 Rytera Alien Z
Got a Bushnell Sport 450. I know they're not top of the range, but I've found it works very well in most situations.
I take it with me if I go for a jog or walk and just point it at various objects at various distances. On other days I don't take it with me and guess distance, then when I'm at the same spot and have it, I see how accurate I was. It has really helped me guage distances.
I use the bushnell VLR2 for hunting! It has come in handy quite a few times. Won't leave home with out it!
Not yet but i will. I just got a Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC for Christmas.
I bought a Nikon Monarch 800 about a year and a half ago. Works quite well. I've repeatedly ranged "soft" targets out to 700+ yards and "hard" targets further yet. It doesn't have the angle calculator built in but I don't feel I really need it as I've never hunted from a tree-stand and don't have any inclination to do so (at least not at this time).
