    I have a range finder, but only use it rifle hunting. For bow hunting, I have locators at known distances, trees, rocks, shrub, etc. I figure the less I have to carry in and mess with, the quieter I am and the less movement I make. For hunting over a field, I'll shove sticks in the ground at known distances.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    I've got a Leupold RX-ll, and am quick to use it, it's always with me, bow or rifle. Like Elkslayer, I play guess the yardage, and am pretty good at it, but depend on the Leupy.

    I borrowed my brothers Bushnell yardage pro 400 to range objects in my yard and around my stands. When hunting I don't have a shot more than 35 yds in any direction. I tend to hunt in thicker areas such as swamps and creek bottoms where shots are sometime too close. But that's when it's most interesting. I use either one pin or two pins set @ 25 and 35yds.

    Bushnell Yardage Pro, supposed to be good on deer out to 200 yards. Use it mostly for setting up known distances for 3D and when practicing judging yardage. Used it after I put up my deer stands, but don't use it for hunting.

    I bought a cheep, used I-on optics range finder for last season. Marked alot of spots from my ground blind out to 50 yards, different colors for different yardages. Let a friend borrow it and haven't seen it since.
