I use a Bushnell yardage pro sport. I love it. It's range is from 5-800 yards, and has a 4x magnification lense as well for some of those farther away items. It is pretty reasonably prices, and it is compact enough to carry pretty much anywhere. I used to use one of those optical ones where you had to line up the images, I guess it worked as well, but the great thing about the laser ones is it is just a push of the button. Also, I have had it for 4 years now and never had to change the battery, which is a 9 volt btw.

I also have Busnel sport, it does work very well but it does not read distance thru ground blind mesh so I got a Nikon 440 and it does work very well also. The nikon is a couple more bucks I think.

Check out the thread in the Hunting forum...there is some more feedback about this topic there.

I have the Nikon 440 and have been very pleased. It has 8x magnification and gets out to around 400 yards. Regular price is typically 199.99, but someone mentioned that Cabela's puts it on sale from time to time at 179.99. Good luck!

We got my son a Nikon Monarch 800 this year, and it is an extremely fun little package. Because we will be doing a little coyote control out on the prairies, the longer-range model will be nice. I've played with a number of different models, and like all optics, you really do get what you pay for.

If you're going to be doing any hunting in the wide-open spaces, an 800 yard model is the minimum. Not to suggest that a guy is going to be taking 800 yard shots, but the ability of the finder to actually range smaller targets is better. In other words, your 400 yard finder probably won't lock onto a deer at 250 yards, while the 800 will.

My buddy has a top-shelf Leica 1200, and while comparing it to my old Bushnell we couldn't quit laughing. I put the Bushnell back in its box a few days later, and haven't used it since.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
