Hunting rangefinders should be equipped with approximations of 7X magnification, an angle-compensation mode, and a rapid-scan mode to track moving animals.
Generally, hunting rangefinders possess a much farther range than golf rangefinders. Golf rangefinders usually have a target range of around 600 yards, while hunting rangefinders can detect distances of 1300+ yards. Golf courses usually do not surpass a to-the-pin reading over 250 yards or 350 yards.
Having a rangefinder assists you in eradicating uncertainty about distances when shooting rifles or bows. When you are aware of the actual distance to the target, you will have more assurance in taking the shot or you will recognize that it is too far away to chance it.
