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.

The Sig Sauer KILO2200LRH BDXRangefinder is the ideal unit for the crossover hunter who spends time in thefield with both a bow and rifle in hand. Working in conjunction with Sig’sSIERRA3 BDX rifle scope, the KILO2200LRH utilizes Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX)to automatically illuminate a holdover dot in the scope for those long distanceshots. 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.
