Shooting a bow at big game is largely about confidence, and one of the key elements in building your confidence when it’s time to touch the release is knowing the exact distance of approaching game. Today’s rangefinders have it all. Whether you’re taking the shot from a steep ridge down to unsuspecting game or shooting long distances when half-yard increments are important to making the killing shot, rangefinders really have become an essential tool for bowhunters. Here are some new options available this year that are worth taking a look at.

Hawke Endurance Series

Hawke Endurance Series

With three models to choose from, the new Endurance series from Hawke will meet the needs of bowhunters and gun hunters alike. With the development of OLED technology, the Endurance se-ries offers a fully multi-coated 6X optical system with an adjustable diopter display that features red illumination icons. This provides extremely high light transmission with true color capabilities that not only give you a precise yardage reading, but does so regardless of the angle or rain condi-tions. Water- and fog-proof, the Endurance series has a durable ergonomic feel and is available in 700m, 1000m and 1500m versions.

Simply download the SIG BDX app on your Android or iOS smartphone, pairthe rangefinder and riflescope together via bluetooth, set up a basic ballisticprofile and you’re ready to hunt. Just range as you normally would, and theKILO BDX rangefinder will utilize its onboard Applied Ballistics Ultralight toinstantly show you where you need to hold for the shot. The KILO2200LRH BDX isalso equipped with AMR (Angle Modified Range) to give true horizontal distancesand the HyperScan mode provides distance readings 4times per second as you scan across targets. The SpectraCoat antireflectioncoatings on the 7x25mm optics ensures superior light transmission and clarity,while the Lumatic OLED display automatically adjusts intensity levels to matchthe lighting conditions.

Tree Saddle Hunting: Best New Climbing Aider Options

A climbing aider is a device that you use in conjunction with a stick that helps you gain more height per stick, but at the addition of very little weight to the stick setup. An aider can provide one or two more steps per each stick section, thereby greatly increasing height potential when needed and allowing you to carry fewer total sticks to gain a specific height.

Tree Saddle Hunting: Best Platforms & Ring of Steps

We all need a spot to place our feet in life … and even more so when in the saddle. The two options are a platform or ring-of-steps. For longer hunts, platforms are more comfortable and most familiar. Ring-of-steps are lighter and easier to pack for shorter-duration hunts and long hikes.
