Golf Laser rangefinder for Hunting?

Uncle FesterUncle Fester Senior MemberPosts: 1,524 Senior Member
I am a golfer and a hunter. Rather than buy two devices, I have considered buying a golf laser (which typically has pinseeker technology) for both purposes. Is there a flaw in my plan that I am not considering?

Note - I can't imagine taking a shot at over 350 yards which is well within the range of even the cheapest golf laser rangefinder.

    I think I remember reading Linefinder saying he uses one for prairie dogs, but I can't recall why.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    My range finds also takes into account the elevation angle, don't know if a golf RF does or not.

    Some of the current hunting RFs - such as the Leupold TBR - will compensate for angle, allow you to match readouts to the trajectory of your round, and will present a firing solution in terms of holdover in inches, MOA, or mils.
