Question: How can I determine the best rangefinder for whitetail deer hunting?

Question: Who has the best technology in range finders?

Question: How much "range" should my rangefinder have?

Question: BigDaddy -- can you help me figure out how to use my rangefinder. Where can I get assistance?



Answer: The best answers to these questions depend on several subjective answers according to BigDaddy@HuntSports .. first of all you must determine the purpose of your rangefinder and your own set of requirements. FOR EXAMPLE: Let's say for "bowhunters" .. I'd guess that 100 yards is more than enough. However, on the other hand, if you also do rifle and muzzle loader hunting .. the ranging requirements could vary widely -- depending on where, what and how you hunt -- not to mention your expertise, experience and ability -- typically a whitetail deer hunter , or Mulie / Elk hunter may want a wide range of options for shooting 200, 300, 500 or up to 800 yards.

If you're talking about golfing  -- BigDaddy is not a golfer .. but it depends on the circumstances .. maybe a rangefinder of between 100 yards to 600 yards .. and remember all is relative to dark trees etc. and don't forget about specification variances from highly reflective surfaces to golf ball sized targets.


So when it comes to precision and optics excellence, one of the things that sets HALO RANGE FINDERS apart from the rest of the pack may very well be some of these important features and benefits when it comes to hunting.


Answer:  Opti-Logic: Halo Optics is the exclusive licensee of two patents held by Opti-Logic Corporation. Opti-Logic is viewed by many as the originator of handheld rangefinder technology, founded by product designers who literally helped put men on the moon. With over three decades of design innovation, Opti-Logic continues to lead the industry with trailblazing new ideas.


Answer: Angle Intelligence: Shots from elevated positions have less gravitational pull since they’re already traveling downward. Tree stand hunters know this often leads to overshot targets. To solve this, Angle Intelligence accounts for slope to target to calculate the angle compensated distance.


Answer: Auto Acquisition: Press a button, and you’ll have an exact range reading immediately. New Halo rangefinders continue to chip away at acquisition times – now two times faster than previous models.


Answer: Scan Mode: Lock in multiple targets at different yardages quickly and accurately. Scan Mode delivers up to four distance readings per second. So you’re free to react and adapt your plan without losing any time.


Answer: Glass Lenses: Found in our most premium models, glass lenses are 20 percent more efficient than standard lenses. This means "MAX RANGING" and target acquisition times are just about as close to perfect as you can get.
