Bushnell Bowhunter – Chuck Adams Edition Rangefinder



20120223_IMG_2889The Bowhunter – Chuck Adams Edition Rangefinder is a rangefinder made for every form of hunter.  With the new Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology, the rangefinder gives bowhunters, specifically, an added advantage.  The features of the Bowhunter – Chuck Adams Edition Rangefinder define what should be in every good rangefinder. 

ARC is the key feature in the rangefinder.  While in Bow Mode, ARC technology calculates the true horizontal distance from you to your target.  When you are 20 feet up in a tree stand and you range a whitetail, normal mode reads the only the distance from the rangefinder to the deer.  While using Bow Mode, the rangefinder calculates the distance from the base of the tree to the deer.  Using normal mode will give you a distance that might cause a hunter overshoot the target.  With Bow Mode, be confident that the true horizontal distance will put your shot right on the bull’s-eye.  Press the button on the rangefinder and get the distance, true horizontal distance, and angle at which the device is pointing.


Standard rangefinder features also are incorporated into the design.  The rangefinder is simple to use.  Simply point at the target and push the black button.  An accurate reading appears almost instantly.  The display screen is built into the monocular viewfinder. You can see the calculated distance, while keeping an eye on the target through the viewfinder. 

20120223_IMG_4987The body of the Bowhunter – Chuck Adams Edition is sleek and attractive.  Chuck Adams’ signature is proudly displayed next to the Bushnell emblem on the right side of the rangefinder.  Any hunter would appreciate the non-flashy olive color of the body.  As a very light tool, the rangefinder only adds 5.3 ounces to your pack.  It seems to never take up too much space.

Whether hunting with a gun or a bow, the Bushnell Bowhunter – Chuck Adams Edition Rangefinder is a valuable tool to have.  Bushnell offers many quality products for outdoorsman. Visit www.bushnell.com.
