personally I haven't found a range finder that wouldn't be good for bow hunting, your only going to be ranging 10-60 yards so it just a preference on if you want it for gun to. then if you do then it can get a little touchy. I use a Bushnell but im about to buy a leupold.

I have a Nikon Riflehunter 1000 that I am very satisfied with. I was able to do side by side comparisons with it and my Dad's buddie's Swarovski range finder. The glass was much better in the Swarovski, but both range finders were with in 10 yards of each other out to 600 yards, they were the same or within 2 yards of each other out to 300.

I had a Bushnell but quickly realized that it wouldn't range in the dead of winter on a field.
So with that said, I bought a Leica 900 scan. Without a doubt it's never failed me and has always ranged very quickly. It's not priced in the mid range by no means, but it works and works very good.
Never seen one that works better In My Opinion!!!
I hunt fields and knowing the range is very important for me.

And yes it ranges excellent in the woods for bow hunting, it's pretty much a all around device. I use it alot for just viewing the fields and deer also.

Have a Nikon works great but eats batteries. I also have a red field I like better. It is smaller and battery last much long. Accuracy is the same between the two.

I've been pleased with my Leupold RX750. It has angle compensation and I'm on the same batteries after probably 5 years.

Leica is the best for the money As far as reaching its predicted capability. Although I have a nikon gold 1200 that ranges consistently to 8-900 yards which im pleased with.
