Re: range finder advice
All BS asside, you will have a hard time getting a range finder to range a dog at extended range. best results from mounting it on a rest. I have a Leica 1200 and a Nikon 800. The leica's glass is very good, and it will range deer sized animals to 800is as long as the sun is not crazy bright. It ranges best just before sunup, or after sunset.
bottom line is you get what you pay for in better glass and better ranging ability... Swaro, Leica crf, Leupold, Nikon/busnell in that order for the most popular manufacturers In my humble opinion.
