    Help post..best range finder?

    Hi guys, I want to go for deer hunting. So, I want to buy a new rangefinder. I have been able to find two rangefinders for me, Bushnell 202442 and Nikon Prostaff 3. But I am in a great confusion which one is best for me or another good recommendation?
    Thanks in Advance.

    Cant speak for those two but I have the RX1200i TBR DNA and it's great. Small and compact. Can get them in sale for $250.

    I have the nikon aculon and it has been good for my needs. I don't range the actual deer prior to the shot. I pre-range different objects trees, bushes, laurel patch, etc. I then know the distance without having to range the animal this makes for less movement in the stand. The 2 main differences with rangefinders is some have angle compensation for when your up in a tree stand. I have looked at charts and done the math. Unless it's a severe angle or hunting in the mountains shooting up or down steep hills then the angle compensation isn't really needed. The difference maybe a yard at 40 to 50yds. Not enough to make your shot be off. I got the nikon aculon at dicks on sale and with a coupon for $100. It's going on 4yrs and I am very happy with it. It does everything I need it to do.

    Nikon has gone to crap. there customer service is the worst ive ever delt with. i recently just had a dealin with them and another painful experience. do yourself a favor and just buy a LEUPOLD. they will fix or replace no questions asked. another great company is sWARVSKI But they will be out of manys price league.
