Preach it brother in my younger days when I could still hunt most of my bow hunting was done with a 55+ pd recurve bow, hand fletched cedar shafts and the only optics or sights we allowed were our eyes. We always had meat n the table.

I got a good deal on an Optic Logic 1000 so that's what I'm using. I'm not that good at guessing yardages at 20-30 ft up in my climber as some people here seem to be.lol

If I had as much time to shoot as I would like, probably wouldn't need the rangefinder either. However, I HAVE made bad shots before and I really prefer to reduce these as much as possible. Before I bought one, I would always mark out distances at each stand before the season. Now I have more latitude to try new spots without walking all over the place.

I hear ya brother I live in California now and they have so many rules against weapons I'm scared to take my hunting rifle out because someone is going to think I'm a sniper out to shoot someone.

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.
Back in the day when I was a captain of the spec ops team at the mall of America we used every bit of tech we could get our hands on. I remember having to use my GPS integrated ninja throwing star. I was standing upstairs by Sears when we spotted a small gang of Islamic Neo ***** down below west of the cinnabon. If I didn't have my arc laser range finder that day we would all be praying to Allah today. Kidding aside. Arc is great when shooting down a canyon but not important from a tree stand.

lol That sounds like one of gecko45's stories that he passed off as true. He was the ultimate mall ninja.
