    sorry but the answer is no, because a golf rangefinder is specially made for a 6 foot pin not a 3 to 4 ft tall deer, wen u use a golf rangefinder u first find teh pin tehn line it up with the chart to the right that has yardage listings and if i tis 200 yrds away teh pin will be fairly small and the top of the 6 ft tall pin will line up with the 200 yrd dash now you could have a deer right next to the pin and it would only say its about 120 yrds away or less. it just doesnt work

    ----160
    ---140
    ----120
    ---110
    ----90
    ---70 <!
    ----50 ! see how it says the pin is about 70 b
    ---30 ! 1~1 <<deer but it says the deer is only bout 40
    ^ this is why it wouldnt work b/c the
    golf pin^ golf ransgefinder is manufactured
    just for golfing..


    hope i wasnt too confusing,,,chase
