    I'm going on my first Colorado Elk hunt this October and am looking for a good quality range finder without spending an arm and a leg. I'd like to stay at or under $400.

    for the money I would go with the bushnell 1500 arc elite =, they dont make them any more but you may find a used one, for under $400 i have ranged ceader trees out just past 1600 yrds with mine and elk out to 950, bushnell has came out with a new 1600 elite arc you can buy them new for around $450 and are suppose to be better than the old 1500 I have never had mine fail me, but I also hunt in high country most the time and am always able to find somthing close if it wont range the animal, my farthest range was for my buddy last year on a mule deer hunt in wyoming, he shot his deer at 1048 yrds I could not range the deer itself but ranged a bush by it at the 1048 yrds and he hit it on his first shot, hope this helps good luck
