Angle Doping???

I am looking for a low cost, compact method of determining vertical angle to target.

Most of my hunting is in some pretty steep terrain.

Any suggestions?

I have a plastic credit card looking thing with angles on it that may work, but would like to have some more ideas!
I'm saving up money for an ACI, but need something until then.

    I just read a review yesterday of a new rangefinder leupold has out. It'll figure out the angle and then tell you the horizontal distance you should aim for.

    I believe you can put in your calibre & load into it and it will also give you MOA adjustments.

    Sounds neat, although I know nothing more about it besides just reading the review. Didn't mention the cost.

    Slopeshunter,
    Do a search and read the review from goodgrouper about it. I would not buy one.

    Hi if you are in very steep terain just aim dead on to 300 yards and you should be good to go just make up some range cards with angles on them and geus until you can get an ACI. I have just recieved an ACI they are awsome so well made i am getting some gear togethor to test a Rem TActicle rifle and i believe a level and ACI are imperitive.

    Thanks for the pointer there eaglet. I didn't know that Leupy wasn't in the same category with their rangefinders as their scopes.

    It's not that low cost but it is precise. It is cheaper than the cosine tool.



    I'm thinking one of these would do just what we're looking for. Craftsman 6-1/2 in. SmartTool Plus Module Sears item #00939756000.

    Just aim at the target and press the hold button. Now you have the exact angle to the 10th of a degree. It even reads in percent to simplify the yardage calculation. For aiming a guy might just mount it to a small scope and keep it in a pocket or just simply sight down the flat edge.

    Lord Willing, I'll be betting the ACI. For now this has worked pretty good for me. I eventually lay it on the side of the stock to get a reading.
