Bow hunting season is just around the corner. If you’re planning on going bow hunting with some buddies this year, you should bring along a rangefinder. There are many benefits to using a rangefinder such as eliminating distance estimation issues. Along with that, here are three more benefits to using a rangefinder.
Durable & Portable
Rangefinders have an ergonomic design that makes them comfortable and easy to carry around on your hunts. Rangefinders are made of durable material and are somewhat waterproof/fogproof. You can carry them comfortably in one hand or put them in a pocket because of their small design. It’s a no brainer when it comes to bringing along a rangefinder when bow hunting. If it doesn’t take up any extra space—why NOT bring one?
Reduces Inaccurate Shots
If you are an avid bowhunter, then you know that many factors play into a single shot. Whether you are shooting from an angle, the distance to your target, and taking gravity into account all play into whether you will hit your target or not. Rangefinders decrease the chance of having an inaccurate shot. This is because they can accurately range when shooting at an angle. When are you actually shooting from completely level ground?
Fast & Accurate Ranging
Rangefinders provide fast and accurate ranging. As with our X-Vision Optics rangefinders, you simply press a button to get an almost-instant reading on how far away an object is. Additionally, rangefinders are more beneficial than using a spotting scope. This is because you can range and shoot accurately from even greater distances than when using a scope.
As you can see, rangefinders are a great product to use when bow hunting. A missed shot almost always comes from not knowing the correct distance away your target is. So, don’t take the chance of missing any shots when you could use an efficient optic such as a rangefinder.
