Range finder! Antelope are easy to see but hard to range, and you can't hit it if you don't have a range.

Re: Range finder or spotting scope?

Last year my new 1500 Bushnell wouldn't range antelope at around 700 yds. My wife and I missed the opportunity at a couple of book bucks because of that POS. I returned it the next day and I'm ordering a Swarovski range finder tonight. IMO, like others have said, buy the best range finder you can afford. The grass, sage, and miles of wide open spaces make an excellent laser a necessity. That is of course unless you know someone that has a Swaro you can borrow, then buy a spotter.

What area did you apply for?
