Five Reasons Why You Need a Rangefinding Bow Sight

5: Adjustable brightness

Fiber optic pins are great in most light conditions, except low light. But the last 20 minutes of the day are usually the most productive in the deer woods, which means brightness can be a problem. The LED pins of the Oracle are adjustable, so you can control them. This allows for extreme precision and maximizes the amount of time that you can spend in the stand each day.

Overall, I’ll admit I was hesitant to bring what was essentially a small computer on board my bow. I’m a traditionalist after all. But I have to say, now I don’t think I can use a bow without it. Plus it makes for more ethical shots.

Mike Reeber's passion for the outdoors started over two decades ago in the hardwoods of northern New York state. At age 8, he began hunting Whitetail's and turkey every chance that he could. Not long after harvesting his first deer, he took up an interest in archery and spent most of his time bow hunting during the fall season from then on. Mike's obsession with bow hunting has stayed with him to this day and he enjoys every opportunity to keep engaged within the bow hunting community. Whether he's gearing up for his next bow hunt, fine tuning his groups during the summer or trying out a new broadhead, Mike's always thinking about something bow hunting related. When he's not out chasing Whitetail or Axis, you can probably find him calling in strutting gobblers during the springtime, thinning out the coyote population or enjoying a sunny day in the dove fields. He also enjoys preparing wild game in the kitchen and loves sharing his creative culinary twists on classic game recipes.

    Unless it has changed, I thought that in Texas, it’s illegal to have any battery operated device on your bow. Is it now legal to have a rangefinder attached to your bow?

      Quite a bit has changed in the legal means and methods related to archery equipment. Lighted pins, magnification, and overdraw rests have been deemed lawful in recent years. Battery operated devices such as spotlights, rangefinders, and the like are also considered lawful at the time of this writing in 2019. It is important for all hunters to review the current regulations before taking to the field.
