Help me out please.

Lets Talk Archery..

Help me out please.

I finally bought me a range finder with the bow technology. Now can some body please tell me which number do I use when I am in a tree and when I am on the ground. I am thinking the shorter number is for when you are elevated. Am I right?

That's too fancy for me. My range finder is a point and shoot type. I generally add a yard or two when i'm elevated, depending on the how far the deer is.

Even though it's not my intention, I know this is going to sound like I'm being a jerk, but have you tried reading the instructions? That's what I usually do as a last resort.

I understand, been there done that. Have you tried, other than here, to research it on the internet? I bet the information is out there. I wish I could help, but I always estimated distance. Try some of the bow hunting sites.

Just youtube search your model. And then at least you can watch a video of someone who actually knows how to use it

When ranging for a bow always use the bottom number. It SHOULD be th lesser of the two. For firearms use the top number. The Big number tells you actual distance, the bottom number tells you what you should shoot for when elevated.
