I use Bushnell's ARC 1 Mile 10 x 42 LRF binoculars for correct distance whether horizontal or angled.
Agreed! With all the accurate tech today, why worry about making more errors. I take a reading from my Kestrel, the GPS altitude and plug it in into my ballistics program on my phone. In a few seconds I have minimized the potential errors and have the needed drop solution in either MRADs or MOAs. Then when the game is located, I lase and can either use an accurate holdover or dial the turret.
This is one of the reasons I do not use special yardage turrets on my scopes, for hunting near sea level at 70-80+ degrees with 70% humidity to 9,000 to 14,000 ft and/or sub zero temps changes everything.
