    I have a bushnell (I think it's a bushnell....don't remember model) that easily reads cars/signs out to around 700 yards. I figured I'd never take a shot even close to that far... so it was a good purchase for me. You're more than welcome to play with it to test things out if you'd like so you know what features, etc you might be looking for.

    One piece of gear is the best and fastest. Last year I was set up glassing across a valley with my wife and youngest daughter. Spotted elk coming from the north, moving at a fast walk down a trail. The whole thing should have been on video but that's another story. I told the girls that when it happens it's going to happen fast, I'm not going to wait. I initially ranged them at 750 and dialed up to that range. But they weren't going to stop. I ranged ahead and found an opening on the trail, it was 703. I dialed back to 700 and sure enough, the lead cow came into that opening and stopped. My tag was filled. Equipment is key and having one piece of equipment instead of two is vital for long range hunting.

    That's a hard sell for me as the further away you are, the more time you have, generally.
    Gray would be the color, if I had a heart.

    I am using Newcon Optik LRM1500 Camo Rangefinder since 2010. It's been great, but I've only used it less than 40 outings.

    Optics planet has yet to ship this range finder, let alone even charge me for it. I feel like I should still be researching just in case something better is out there.

    You should be researching a better vendor

    I may have a discount coupon for Eurooptic for you if you want to buy from them.

    Agree. Optics Planet is not to be trusted.

    I've never ordered anything from them before, so I've learned my lesson.

    I may take you up on that. I may just cancel the order altogether and just wait till next year.

    I looked at the link provided and the price looks good. Any more info you have on your experience testing one out?
