    You stuck on Nikon? For bow hunting/medium range rifle I use the Sig Kilo. Very accurate and easy to use. If your just looking for bowhunting and possibly shotgunning, Nikon should treat you fine. Which model?? Im not to familiar with them, so I'd suggest something with a ballistics compensation( measures angle and give you true yardage)
    Always remember,, if it states 800 yrds, it's probably good to 5-600 yrds. The amount it's rated at is in real perfect conditions which we'll never see when we need it.
    Good luck

    I have a leupold 1200, honestly its pretty much overkill. Unless you are doing long range, or want to use it for golf, I would say any cheap one will do. The high end stuff has a ton of options, or available uses that I never really use.

    I have a cheapo $99 simmons, so far so good. What good is ranging a deer at 250 yds when ya have a bow in your hand?

    Bought an inexpensive Bushnell from a member a year or so ago and it serves it purposes !

    I checked out Nikon MONARCH 3000 Stabilized while helping Nikon out at SHOT Show and I promise you it is all it is reported to be. I have been using the 7iVR rangefinder for 18 months, the industries first stabilized rangefinder by the way. The new one is leaps and bounds above the 7iVR in features and capabilities. I'm still hoping to get my hands on one soon, they have truly been going out as fast as they have been coming in. As some of you who have asked me question's in the past already know, I do no sales. I'm just trying to let you know about product's that might be helpful to your hunting situations. Drop me a note any time and I'll do my best to answer your questions.

    Unless you are hunting out West with a rifle and plan on making 400+ yrad shots, there is no need for a high priced rangefinder. If you notice, the longer the rangefinder works, the more expensive it is. A 450 yd one is plenty for use in NJ.
    Enjoy life. It has an expiration date.

    I just got the Vortex Ranger 1000 Rangefinders. I haven't had a chance to use it yet though. I like their warranty; if anything happens they will fix or replace it for free.
