We were able to spluger this payday and we bought a range finder. We have been guesstimating how far we have been running the dogs. Well we took the new toy with to training today it was a real eye opener. I thought I needed to get Jige to run even further than what we are doing now but my boy is doing 130yrd doubles in the one field. Tomorrow I will find out how far I have been sending him out in the other field. The one single that I was using a couple of weeks ago was 160yrds. Here I thought he was maybe going 80-100yrds. I guess I am not good at guesstimating.

Yes it is! It is really going to help us figure out how far they are going and at what distance they are having troubles.

can you tell us which one you bought? The ones I was looking at were all about $450-$500, too rich for my blood!
I'm really bad at estimating distances, too. Dan will run Tito over 200 yards, and I think it's about 100....

I decided I have to have one....Bass Pro Shops has them for $179.99, but I'm sure they'll honor Gander Mountain's price of $169.99. I printed the rebate form, so I'm ready to go.
(I just happen to have a $150 Bass Pro gift card burning a hole in my pocket, that's why it has to come from Bass Pro!)

Darn they are expensive. Especially the Leica, Leupold and Swarovski. I am curious how they actually compare - sometimes (few times) just because they cost more it does not necessarily mean they work better.

Rangefinders are a really cool thing to have. It makes it much easier to make a shot when you are hunting. My son is starting to hunt and I want to buy a rangefinder for him. I was looking for hunting rangefinder online and I found one on ATN. They have some cool stuff on their website and for really good prices. Soon we will go hunting and I will gift it to him. I was thinking of buying a scope for him also from the website and I probably will. They have cool HD scopes that are capable of streaming and making HD video and I know that he likes that.
