    Simmons LRF600 ATAC rangefinder. Great 'lie' detector.

    I use an old Bushnell yardage Sport 450. A couple of years ago out of the blue another Bow hunter on another forum just Pm'ed me one day and asked if I wanted to have it. He read my post on one of the threads that Ive never used one. He was upgrading and didn't want it to sit around. It still works great and I'm still grateful. When I upgrade to a angle compensating rangefinder, I will do the same and give the Bushnell to another Rangefinder newbie. Pass it forward. Amen.

    Bushnell Scout 450. I range everything within my shooting range, and depending on the stand, I'll put a small pice of colored ribbon that corresponds with my sight pins on the trees at the given range. (Green 20 yard pin, green ribbon on 20 yard trees). It REALLY helps take away the "Was that tree 30 or 40 yards?" dillema. When hunting along open fields, I'll put small pieces of ribbon on a rod (piece of old coathanger usually), that corresponds with my sight pins, and just stick them in the ground. Alot easier to see that he's 3-4 yards from the 30 yard marker, than to guess that he's 34 yards out. I don't carry the rangefinder with me when I bow hunt, since everything is marked, and in the woods, I don't always have time to range an animal before he pops into sight.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Helps when setting up a temporary target range too. None of that 30 paces rubbish or about 30 yards, its 30 yards confirmed!
