Re: Long Range Hunting
You know I have a Leica 1200 RF and it didn't do diddly squat on antelope at 550-750 yrds. So I'm sure it wouldn't do jack on a coyote at even less yards. The bottom line is that these "eye-safe" laser range finders just don't work well on anything less then highly reflective objects at the ranges specified. And coyotes are definately not highly reflective objects. You either try and find a military laser ($$$$$), or try one of the other ranging techniques, such as a Wild optical rangefinder or a mil-dot scope. A Wild would be an excellent one for the ranges that you're interested in, by they are heavy and bulky. But if you're calling coyotes, it might just be the thing. But DO NOT buy a Leica thinking that you're gonna range coyotes at greater 400 yrds, cause it just ain't gonna happen.
