If that works for you its all good. As a former sniper and a long range precision shooting instructor if any of the buds found a range finder in my bag I would never live it down.
I see the use of a range finder as cheating for any type of hunting BTW I also bow hunted and we never used range finders. If you get enough range time you get the calibrated eye to see range good enough for a solid clean kill every time, if you take away the tech and rely on the range finder God gave you namely your eyes your reflex shooting into the kill zone will improve 200% in a very short time.
