Im having trouble choosing a range finder. Is the ARC/ID tech really that important of a thing to have or will your basic one work fine. Also does anyone have any experiance with the nikon riflehunter 1000, leupold rx-1000, or the bushnell scout 1000?

Honestly I dont think so. I have a bushnell 440. It does just what I need it to do. I got it at walmart for $200 about 3 years ago. I use it to make a reference to objects around my stand. I make an imaginary line using these objects. That way when deer walk into the imaginary line/arc I know what pin to use without having to reach for the range finder. I also test myself on the distances while I'm waiting on the deer. Kinda keeps my mind in the game while on stand and nothings happening.

unless your hunting extremely steap terrain or taking very long shots the ARC is not needed. I have a bushnell 550 thats always worked great, even after a 22ft fall from the stand
