  • Angle Range Compensation (ARC)
  • Bow Mode
  • Green Color

The BowHunter Chuck Adams Edition 850 4x20 Laser Rangefinder from Bushnell is lightweight and small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It weighs less than 6 ounces and with dimensions smaller than 1½ by 4 by 3 inches it is not much bigger than a box of crayons. A single push button delivers the target range anywhere from 5 to 850 yards.

Designed specifically for bow hunters and endorsed by a legend, the Bushnell BowHunter Chuck Adams Edition Laser Rangefinder is the world's most advanced range-finding device for the shorter distance, high-angle scenarios encountered in the sport of archery.

The BowHunter's Bow Mode employs Bushnell's Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology to determine true horizontal distances of 5-99 yards with extreme shooting angles of ±90°! Whether shooting uphill, downhill, or from a stand, the Bow Mode's sensors and computers give a reliable archer's level distance. Line of sight distance, angle, and adjusted horizontal distance are all simultaneously displayed.

Beyond archery use, the BowHunter Chuck Adams Edition can be adjusted to display normal distances to 850 yards and offers multicoated optics in a 4x20 mm configuration with an AAoV of 33°. Even in low light the optics are bright and crystal clear. It has a vertical, monocular configuration with a rainproof housing. A 3-volt battery is included, as is a carrying case and a neck strap. This rangefinder has a battery-life indicator, a Posi-Thread battery door, and a sure-grip finish. This is a rangefinder that should be in every hunter, nature viewer and sportsman's knapsack.

      this is an excellent product and is very accurate. the ARC is a must for me because i only hunt with a crossbow. the ARC feature is great, it allows me to figure out exactly how to shoot.
      the only problem is that it doesnt work in the fog... i dont know if this is typical with all other range finders because this is my first one. i was shooting in my yard the other day and as i was moving farther away from the target i attempted to range my target and i got no reading. at first i was angry because i thought it was broken and ive only had it for about a week. so i went into the garage and it worked fine. process of elimination leads me to believe that it was not working propperly due to the fog

        Comments about Bushnell BowHunter Chuck Adams Edition 850 4x20 Laser Rangefinder:

        I just got the Chuck Adams rangefinder and tested it out in my back yard.It was very simple to use ,it is hard to see in low light levels because of the black display,it really just depends on the background of what you are looking at .I got the rangefinder for deer hunting,I plan to make a few quick ranges to trees,rocks,etc...while in the stand to get the yardage.I'll do this in plenty of light ,so I'll be sure to see what the yardage is,then remember what the yardage is and base my shot on that if a deer comes within my range .I can concentrate on the shot and the deers movement,more so then trying to hold the rangefinder,bow and also trying to range distance,also no light ,no big deal,I'll know the yardage already :) Happy Hunting

                I've used one for bowhunting whitetail deer for about a year. It has functioned well. I find the angle compensation very helpful. I wish it had backlight for reading the numbers in lowlight conditions, but overall I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

                              Looking forward to using this in my treestand. In the meantime, I can use this range finder for practice shots from all different angles and be sure of the distance to the target. I think the ARC technology is great when shooting from different heights. It's compact, easy to hold and operate with one hand.

                                      Primarily use this for bow hunting, but have also used it on occasion for ranging of targets past typical bow range. I'm very happy with this purchase. For this price point, I don't think you can do better.

                                          I love my new rangefinder. It works well and the price was right. I especially like the ARC feature! Accurate and simple to use!
