    I have never have used one in all of my years of hunting. Im not saying there not useful for the beginner but you need to know your distance by good old practicing what would happen if your batteries died? would you have an electronic meltdown? or use your skills to get you buy think about it did fred bear have a range finder?

    Yes, primarily when bowhunting. Use it to check distances to various trees around my stand. Also use it periodically to gauge my guess at objects at various distances.

    I just use my dads. I use muzzleloader, so when i get to my blind i just see how far away landmarks are, and compare deer with them to see if their close enough. I dont use them after about the first 5 minutes in the blind though, they are too loud and if a deer comes out while using one you are in trouble, cause you might spook it while putting the range finder down and picking up your gun.

    I dont use one because I dont have one. I think one is in my future though.
