We are not eagles neither are we born with navigation abilities to estimate distance and see far distances. That’s why when situations present themselves where we need these very important abilities, a device is needed to help us. And that is the Rangefinders.
A rangefinder will help you estimate or find the exact distance aside from bringing a subject close enough for better observation by the golfer or hunter. Nonetheless, not any rangefinder is a good rangefinder.
The Bushnell bone collector rangefinder is one of those high quality, great performance, and great design rangefinders that give you value for your money. This is mainly a hunting rangefinder which is used for archery, shooting, and airsoft.
The few rangefinders that you will end up holding dear because they are so good at their job you never want to get rid of or let go.
When you use the Bushnell bone collector rangefinder, you forget other rangefinders exist because of the great service it offers you.
- Range: 600 yards

I have discussed more details of some of the above-mentioned features below.
The Bushnell Michael Waddell Bone Collector Edition 4x 21mm Laser rangefinder can measure the distance of objects up to 600 yards. Sometimes your target is far but you still need to estimate the distance of it from your position.
This feature will come in handy as you will be able to capture objects far in the distance or even close, ranging from 10 yards to 600 yards. The accuracy is also to par with +/- 1-yard accuracy for objects viewed through the lens.
Simple One Button Operation
When on a hunting expedition or a game of golf and you need to measure distance, the last thing you need is a rangefinder that is troublesome to operate, complex and with too many controls.
This product gives you an easy way of operating that makes use of only one button for basic operations. This way you don’t have to experience a difficult time to find controls or understand how to operate it, you just switch it on and get to work.
To be able to magnify a subject in the distance can be a very big and significant determinant as to whether you hit a target or not. Therefore, when an object is too far, you need to bring it as close as the Bushnell Michael Waddell Bone Collector can.
With 4X magnification, you can bring your subject as close as possible and take the hit from a more informed and accurate point of view.
Weather Resistant Housing
Golfing and hunting happen in the open and unfortunately we can’t control how the weather outside behaves; instead, we have to customize ourselves and our devices too to be able to deal with the weather.
This product has a housing that is weather resistant so that when you are out hunting or golfing, and it begins raining, no worries, your rangefinder is safe. The same goes for when it is too sunny or too dusty, and the rangefinder can handle it.
Bright, Crystal Clear Optics For Targeting In Low Light
Sometimes in the outdoors, it gets dark and with many devices, insufficient light means calling it a day. Not the Bushnell Michael Waddell Bone Collector laser rangefinder.
It has clear optics that are bright enough to help you operate even in low light giving you the freedom to continue despite outside conditions. So for evening light, early morning light, cloudy days this product will be your go to a rangefinder.
Bushnell Bone Collector Rangefinder Cons
- The 9-volt battery can a bit tricky to change in the field.
- Cannot measure slopes
- To toggle between yards and meters you must switch off the rangefinder.
