Many factors come into play when you’re hunting for your hunting rangefinder; such as the clarity of the optics, weight and size, maximum measuring distance, and durability. We have selected and reviewed five hunting rangefinders to help you make your decision in a jiffy.
Being one of the best in its category, the Bushnell Michael Waddell Bone Collector Edition 4x 21mm Laser Rangefinder is one you need to know about when comparing different hunting rangefinders. It has a decent accuracy, 4x magnification through an objective lens, and doesn’t cost a fortune (quite the opposite, actually!). Just like most rangefinders, the Bushnell is easy to use with just one click of a button. If you’re a night hunter, the LCD display ensures that the darkness of the night won’t hinder you. No matter the weather circumstances, this rangefinder is completely waterproof and easy to carry around in its case. However, no hunting rangefinder is perfect and this Bushnell has the disadvantage that it’s limited to approximately 550 meters in distance. If you’re aiming for a small animal, this may limit your accuracy. Luckily, for those eager and more experienced hunters other rangefinders are on the market.
TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder - 6x24 Laser Range Finder for Hunting with Speed, Scan and Normal measurements (Camo)
In a similar price range as the above Bushnell, the TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder allows for a 6x magnification. Other than that, it’s quite similar to its more established brother, the Bushnell. Its newly updated hunt technology allows for quick measurement with an accuracy of approximately 90cm. The TecTecTec optics contain several layers and the rangefinder is quite easy to read through its clear lens display. Take this portable hunting rangefinder with you anywhere using the included case. It’s lightweight and can be used in all types of weather without risk of water or dust damage. This handy piece of hunting gear could, however, improve its display by illuminating it to read the results. This would be especially helpful in low-light situations. Maybe this is a feature for TecTecTec’s upgraded hunting rangefinder?
Just for an added informational bonus, here is a short video of the ProWild Hunting Rangefinder:
It shows the same or added information as we might have missed out on mentioning some of the important features of the product.
Laser Rangefinder for Hunting and Golf, 700 Yards 6X 25mm Range finder with Speed, Scan and Fog measurement (700 Yards)
Are you a golf fanatic and a hunter? Then why get two different rangefinders if you can spend your money on one single one that serves both purposes. The Laser Rangefinder for Hunting and Golf delivers exactly that. This rangefinder comes with PinSeeker technology and measures up to more than 600 meters. Just like the rangefinder mentioned above, this one measures quite accurately at about 90 cm. Weighing just about 180 grams, this multi-purpose rangefinder will be easy to carry across the golf course and to take on your hunting adventures. The best part?

This dual-purpose hunting/golf laser range finder has a range of up to 600m and a decent accuracy with Pinsensor technology that can be useful between the golf flags or for when you go on a hunting spree. Even though accuracy is quite good, be aware of small objects that may hinder its preciseness when measuring, especially while hunting This Visionking Rangefinder has three modes of usage and has a magnifying power of 6x. It’s a great rangefinder for the price you pay, but keep in mind that it’s a quite simple one and that you only get what you pay for. The manual was written by someone with a lack of decent English, so be aware of that before your purchase. Nevertheless: we do recommend the Visionking Rangefinder for the newer users on a budget to experience what a difference a rangefinder can make.
The black Wildgame Innovations Halo X Ray Z6X 600 Laser Range Finder has a more luxurious design and feel to it than most camouflage colored laser rangefinders. Including the Angle Indicating Technology feature, 6x magnification and an accuracy of approximately 90 cm, this higher range rangefinder is one you’ll enjoy using time after time. It unfortunately lacks an illuminated display, which most users love to see in a rangefinder, but this is more than compensated for by this equipment’s other features. Overall, the Wildgame laser rangefinder is definitely worth your money and will not fail to surprise you with its lightweight design and easy to use features!
