Tips to Help You in Getting the Most Out of Your Rangefinder

Whenever you purchase a rangefinder, and no matter the reason, it makes sense to know how to get the most out of it. After all, you want to use it to its full capacity straight out of the box. However, there can be a problem. With so many options and models out there, it can be tricky to see how to get the most out of it. Thankfully, there are some tips that can certainly make a difference.

  1. Make Sure You Have a Spare Battery.

There’s nothing worse than discovering you forgot to charge your rangefinder at the most inopportune moment. That is why we strongly recommend making sure you have a spare battery to carry with you. Also, this applies no matter if you are using the rangefinder for either hunting or golf. The less power it has, then the less accurate it can be with the range.

  1. Check if it is Waterproof.

Considering you could be outside in some horrible conditions, checking it is waterproof is important. You certainly don’t want to spend money only to then have it ruined at the first sign of rain. Also, check if it has a water submersion level as this will tell you how much water it can survive in.

  1. Use the Scan Mode Where Appropriate.

The scan mode on a rangefinder is a wonderful invention. Not only does it save you from trying to keep up with whatever you are hunting manually, but it allows you to zone in faster in order to take your shot. The distance to your moving target is constantly changing, so the scan mode resolves that problem in an instant. You should find that most rangefinders now have this mode even if you are looking at the budget range.

  1. Understand the Display ASAP.

Each model of rangefinder will have a different way of displaying the information. Due to this, you must be able to understand the display before you use it. After all, you hardly want to be focusing in on something only to then discover you have no idea what it is telling you. Practice beforehand and by the time it comes to the crunch of using it, then it will all be second nature.

  1. Think About Accessories.

The final tip that we are going to offer is to think carefully about accessories. Do you need a tripod?  Do you need a neck lanyard? Will you attach it to your belt? Thinking about the way in which you will be using your rangefinder will allow you to then determine what you need from an accessory point of view. Always seek to make your life as easy as possible.

Of course, there are a multitude of things that we could have included here, but the main point we are making is to make sure you are prepared in advance. Get to know your rangefinder and make sure you have the perfect version for your needs before putting it into action. The outcome you achieve is going to depend on it.
