Shooting a bow at big game is largely about confidence, and one of the key elements in building your confidence when it’s time to touch the release is knowing the exact distance of approaching game. Today’s rangefinders have it all. Whether you’re taking the shot from a steep ridge down to unsuspecting game or shooting long distances when half-yard increments are important to making the killing shot, rangefinders really have become an essential tool for bowhunters. Here are some new options available this year that are worth taking a look at.

Hawke Endurance Series

Hawke Endurance Series

With three models to choose from, the new Endurance series from Hawke will meet the needs of bowhunters and gun hunters alike. With the development of OLED technology, the Endurance se-ries offers a fully multi-coated 6X optical system with an adjustable diopter display that features red illumination icons. This provides extremely high light transmission with true color capabilities that not only give you a precise yardage reading, but does so regardless of the angle or rain condi-tions. Water- and fog-proof, the Endurance series has a durable ergonomic feel and is available in 700m, 1000m and 1500m versions.
