Does anyone have opinions on a decent budget consciousness rangefinder for bow hunting?

I am considering the Burton Echo and the Bushnell Sport 450. I will be using the unit for primarily bow hunting but it would be nice to be able to accurately range for black powder and rifle as well. I have read the customer reviews on the Bass Pro website but wanted to get some more opinions. Thanks.

  1. agree leupold,, or simply mark objests in the woods stepping off yardage been doing said for many years,, say 10 yd 15 20 30 um 40 is out there somewhat

  2. I don’t like the use of a range finder for bow hunting unless you are a world class bow shot and are hunting in the western part of the country where longer shots are the norm. If neither one applies to you it is a waste of money and effort to use it strictly for bow hunting. The average distance a deer is killed by a bow hunter is 19 yards. I have a self imposed limit of 35 yards for a bow shot.No need for a range finder at that distance.But The Bushnell would be the one I would get other then the Burton Echo, mainly because I know nothing about the Echo.
