When it comes to ease of use and dependability it will be hard to beat what the Vortex Optics Ranger has to offer. The rangefinder features a clean, illuminated display and a highly intuitive menu that is easier than ever to access and use. You will have this little device mastered in no time at all. The Vortex Optics Ranger is capable of measuring distances up to a thousand yards. This is plenty of distance for any bow hunter.
The scan mode is without a doubt one of the handiest features that simply cannot be overlooked. The scan feature allows you to range moving target, which can help range targets on uniform backgrounds in the HCD and LOS mode. This is a feature that will come in extremely handy when you are tracking a moving target. Once the device is powered up all you have to do is hold the measure button and scan the laser back and forth while watching the changes in the yardage number as the crosshairs move over the target. There will be a blinking S on the display when you are in the scan mode.
Non-Slip Grip With Fully Multi-Coated Lenses
The Vortex Optics Ranger features a handy non-slip grip so that hunters never have to worry about losing grip of the device. This will be an excellent feature to take advantage of when the weather is nastier or when you are making a quick movement. Another neat feature that cannot be overlooked is the fully multi-coated lenses. The lenses will ensure that you are provided with optimal light transmission in all lighting conditions.
HCD And LOS Modes
The Vortex Optics Ranger also features two different calculating modes. These are the HCD mode and the LOS mode. The HCD mode is the primary mode and allows for angle compensated distance. This is ideal for most hunters and shooters. However, the LOS mode really allows you the option of calculating longer distance shot and high angle shots. Simply put, in the LOS mode you are going to get an increased precision.
