Trail Cam or RangeFinder

4 posts in this topic

I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket and I'm having a hard time deciding between a range finder or a trail cam. I'd use the rangefinder primarily for bowhunting as i don't hunt out west at all. Thanks guys

I have used both and I would go with the trailcamera.

With the camera you can see what is in the area and what time they are traveling by. I use my range finder very little and almost not at all. I will use it if I'm in a new stand location and range to a trail or tree. before I had the range finder, I would measure the distance by foot to my tree. Sometimes I will also mark my 20 & 30 yard areas with trail tape. One might also just mark with trail tape the 30 yard so you will know if a deer is farther out. Most if not all of my shots inside the woods are within 25 yards.

Trail Cam for sure!!! wink.gif I have both and never use the rangefinder! But the Trail Cams... Im just as hooked trying to get good pics of the deer as I am hunting them.

It helps calm the craving for this year round addiction. grin.gif

I would just get a Cuddy Back and forget the range finder. Now I have a similar problem, but mine is between Binoculars or a Trail Cam. I have old Bino's that are terrible. I have actually been using my scope rather than the bino's because it is much clearer. What to get? I really like the Nikon Monarchs.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
