    I recently bought one of these after reading good comments on this forum. Search SNDWAY. Won't be as waterproof as $500+ range finders so I'll keep it in zip lock bag when not being used but at $128 for 1000m version delivered I'm happy as. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Tele...299a4c4dKU2rNC

    This is bullshit! I can tell you, as soon as your range a deer at 400m, you will want to range one at 800m. Once you have that one sorted, you will want to measure how far away the deer is when it's a bit over 1km away. In the end, I brought the Sig 3000BDX and can measure that deer at close to 4000m!

    At least get one that can get you to 1000m
