Which range finder?

Which rangefinder will range a deer at 1000+ yards with slope? Which one does the experienced long range hunters use?

I see that The Bushnell 1000 w/ arc will only range a deer at 300 yards, but trees up to 1000 yards. What do you do if there are no trees?

I have never used one and am planning a Pronghorn hunt next fall and would like to shoot one out to 1000 yards.

    I say get a swarovski and don't look back. I have one and have ranged antelope with it to just over 1000 yards. It will not calculate for the slope but, that is easy enough to do with a good ballistics program like exbal.

    Get the best you can afford. I have a Leica CRF 1200 and it does well.

    Go to Cabela's, in the bargin cave. I got a Swaro for $700. Buy one of these if you can. I was told they use the Swaro for sniping over seas.

    +1 for the Leica CRF 1200. I bought one from a dealer off this site for $100 less than anywhere else, ($500) and I've been more than pleased with it.

    a Zeiss will range out to 1200 yards it also has the a ballistic program in the range finder much like what they use on their scopes.
