Re: Rangefinders for Antelope
Last fall I was pegging cows, antelope and deer, (white tail, mule deer, doe and buck) beyond 1300 yds very consistently off hand with the Bushnell 1600 Fusion's
Even if you consider the very real possibility of having the range finder pick up the grass in front or behind due to no rest...that's still a consistent reading at that range...get on a rest and its golden.
I ranged a nonreflective grassy hill a coyote was sitting on at 1681 meters...beyond a mile.
Don't overlook them.
I know I will never again choose a LRF that isn't a combo unit. Binos and LRF in one package.
Swaro's might be better, but the Leica Geovids were NOT. They had better glass for observing, but they didn't even come close to ranging as well as the Fusion.
The vectors can't be beaten...but you'll pay for their awesomeness too. Ranging moving vehicles at over 6000 yds is always fun.
