Die hard bow hunter here. Looking to ditch the binoculars while I'm in the stand and just use a LRF. Real work scenario I don't have time to look at a deer with my bino's, set them down, pick up the LRF, range the deer, set it back down, etc.....

The problem with my POS Nikon is it gathers no light so I cant see jack through it when most shooting opportunities happen. I don't need the LRF to see a mile. I need it for 20-100 yards and in low light conditions. I hunt bluff country so angle compensation would be a huge plus.

The best optics I have found in a range finder is in the Lieca. Even so they are not what I would call  bright.
      Learn the practice of setting up a range card when you set up your stand. If you wait until the deer have arrived within 50 yards to start fumbling with a range finder the deer will to burn you. I don't even like having binoculars in an archery stand. Deer have good eyes. They will be more likely to pick up movement of a hunter scanning the far horizon long before the deer are ever in bow range. Having Binoculars, Rangefinder, deer calls and whatever gizmos hanging around your neck or fumbling around to put them away in pockets so you can pick up your bow after the deer are in range is a recipe for failure. Do the work ahead of time. Range card, Clear the decks for action,( put everything away that can impede drawing the bow.) Be still then shoot.
