Product Highlights
  • 5x24 7.0° Monocular
  • Angle Range Compensation

The Bushnell Scout 1000 rangefinder is a small, accurate instrument for measuring distances at the golf course, in the woods, or at a firing range.

The unit has comfortable eye relief and 5x magnification, with some intelligent modes so that you can selectively measure exactly for the distance of the object you seek, and not what is in front of or behind it.  

This Scout 1000 rangefinder has angle range compensation capacity, with a built-in inclinometer that displays the rangefinder's angle -60 to +60 from level, and is accurate within one degree.  This information, in this model, is integrated into 'bow' and 'rifle' measuring modes-which further tailor the expressed readings to help a bowhunter or rifleman hit their target.

Built-in ±60° inclinometer with ±1° accuracy
Bow mode uses measuring angle and actual distance to yield a "shoot as" range
Rifle mode integrates measuring angle & 8 ballistic groups to yield a "shoot as" distance and holdover specification
BullsEye mode ignores higher-reflectivity background objects and displays distance to closest object
Brush mode ignores higher-reflectivity foreground objects and displays distance to further object
Scan mode continuously updates distances of each object in crosshairs
Displays in English or metric

      Load the battery, look through the eyepiece, push the button. A second button cycles the custom settings; pick the one you need from a lengthy list contained on the included DVD-ROM; or print everything for your particular caliber. This rangefinder works EXACTLY as advertised. Low light performance was better than expected; some dark objects actually DO reflect the laser beam. It doesn't work well through the dirty windshield glass on my vehicle; so far that's the only problem.

          I have used it on camping trips and for archery but the biggest surprise was at work I had forgotten to take it out of my bag before going to work and wound up using it at the construction site to measure distance. after using the range finder I measured with tape and line it was on the monry

              Bought this to find distances to paper targets out to 400m, so I didn't need any top of the line rangefinder....it's light, glass is quality for the price paid, navigating menu setttings is user friendly, readout is crisp and not cluttered.

              Once it starts to get dark, it gets extremely difficult to see the digital readout..... Would have been nice to have a lit reticle/ocular housing. The hand strap that comes with it is pretty useless, mine was all melted together, I wish the case had a different closing as well.....the magnet isnt incredibly strong, and often pops open inside my range bag.

                  I have to start by saying ,I am useing this scout for my golf game also. Markers at driving ranges are never right. So now I can tell correct distances. I have not hunted with it yet, but have ranged Pronghorn to about 500 yards. So it works as advertised. I have recomended it to several folks and will do so again. It is hard to hit flag out to 300 yards but thats to be expected

                  Have wanted this unit for the last two years but could not get myself to spend the $ plus dollars for it. Found it at BH video and photo for $, coupled with the $ mail in rebate I decided to order it. BH video had it at my front door in about three days...fantastic service. Scout 1000 ARC works exactly as advertised and very accurate. Love the compact size, different mode functions, and ease of use. With BH sale price and rebate I paid $ for this rangefinder and could not be happier with it! Thanks BH.

                          Scout 1000 with ARC, is very beneficial when hunting terrain of hills with shots to be taken into higher or lower areas. Have used also for measuring square yardage of food plot areas. Rangefinder is lightweight and fits in most pockets of any jacket. As advertised, accuracy is within one yard. I find this a good purchase.

                                I had purchased a so called comparable for about half the price of the Scout 1000 but got less than a quarter of the benefits. So I sent it back and bought the Scout. Fantastic! Accurate distance, with a much more precise object selection plus all the features. Would highly recommend for golf and hunting.

                                    Works as advertised and seems easy to use. The critical performance factor is what you are aiming at. Some things reflect back better than others so there's a learning curve on what to meter on. It's small and comes with a nice case. I use it for photography and figuring depth of field. So far, better images and hope to continue that trend.

                                          If you, like me, have been searching for an affordable and portable device to measure distance and angles when surveying theatres for loudspeaker placement and focus, the Bushnell Scout 1000 is a contender. Easily measure line of sight distance (diagonal), true distance (horizontal), and angle relative to the ground plane.

                                          Device is accurate within a yard/meter which is adequate for most applications.

                                          One feature that is misisng is an internal light. In dark spaces, it is impossible to read the display in the unit.

                                          Overall, a good option and value.

                                            Load the battery, look through the eyepiece, push the button. A second button cycles the custom settings; pick the one you need from a lengthy list contained on the included DVD-ROM; or print everything for your particular caliber. This rangefinder works EXACTLY as advertised. Low light performance was better than expected; some dark objects actually DO reflect the laser beam. It doesn't work well through the dirty windshield glass on my vehicle; so far that's the only problem.
