If your lookin to shoot prairie dogs past 500 yards the 35&3/4" Wild is the range finder your lookin for!! Heck the glass is only 11x but the quality is so good I even use mine for a spotting scope. Ranging prairie dogs is a little tricky past 1500 yards but a single fence post or marker can be used to range much father. Nope I aint backpacking it anywhere but anytime you can set up your shooting bench its handy to have set up right beside it.
LMK has a fair price on these if they come with case,instructions, calibration bar and both tripods. Very few would be disatisfied with a Wild!
The meter problem is easily colved with a convertion chart
