Summer is opportune time to gear up

When it’s not hunting season, what’s a hunter to do?

Hunt for stuff.

Many hunting enthusiasts take to the summer hunting grounds of their favorite outdoors superstore when they can get away, some spending hours browsing, testing, looking at all that gear they could use this fall and winter.

Range finders

What to look for: Many still consider this an unnecessary gadget, but if you like gadgets and gizmos, electronic innovation has brought down the price and improved the quality of range finders. Look for a rangefinder with a reticule that is easy to see under low light conditions (illuminated or red instead of black) because most hunting is near dawn or dusk. Bowhunters, especially, will probably want a unit with an inclinometer, for true horizontal range.
