Do you really need a dedicated archery range finder?

An archery/bow hunting range finder is all some people need

Obviously, no one is taking 200 yard shots with even the most powerful crossbow, so long range capability isn’t a concern while bow hunting. Now it may be a big concern to the bow hunter who also uses a rifle (or even just plays golf, but that’s another topic). But just focusing on the act of bowhunting, the typical 100 yard range limit of most dedicated bow hunting range finders would be fine.

Also, in many states, hunters are restricted to using shotgun slugs for deer and other game.  Ohio is one such example. Even with modern rifle-barrel shotguns and sabot slugs, it’s exceedingly rare to take a shot over 100 yards.  If your hunting territory is filled with dense cover and not many fields or other open areas, then you may not have many shots over 100 yards even if you can use a rifle.

Bottom Line Up Front: The Nikon Archer’s Choice is a very high quality, feature-packed range finder – out to 100 yards.

For those who are solely dedicated to bow hunting or shotgun slug shooting under 100 yards, this could be a great selection.  But for just a little more money, you can get a lot more range finder.
