    Next Gen rangefinder

    This is a sneak preview of the next generation of hunting rangefinders as well as an unusual opportunity to view a piece of technology pre-market. In exchange, we ask only for some thoughts and discussion from those who matter most.

    The demo video for Visual Orientation System (VOS) is presented on the 2nd page of a 3 minute questionnaire. We are happy to address any questions left along with an address in the final comments section – no personal information required (State or non-US country only).

    I now use a Swaro monocular/rangefinder combo and love it. Very useful, and only one piece of equipment! Thanks for the heads up, I'll be on the lookout for it.

    Very cool. I'm curious to the cost when this comes out on the market.

    So this setup basically locks a GPS coordinate on the critter your hunting and allows you to know the direction/location of your quarry? Isn't that taking away from the hunt a little? I guess its not much different than having a buddy spot while you sneak but I think technology is getting a little crazy. I do use binos and a range finder(no angle calc.)

    I was wondering the same thing. I have blown many stalks on muleys because I get my location messed up. That is part of the hunt to me. I feel like it would be cheating a bit, but I can't say I wouldn't buy one of these units...
