Leupold RX-IV range finder B&C limited ed.
Anyone using one of these yet? It has built in antler width estimation, along with the range finding. I got one for Christmas and played with it a bit but was wondering how accurate it is going to be in judging moose.
I heard about this scope, did you get it up here or did you order it, I want to find out more about it to. Will whatch thread to see if anyone else has any info on it. Thanks for bringing it up
Leupy B&C RF - Trophy Scale
Posts I've read, and my experiences this Fall suggest this RF has promise - mainly for a little more decision making support when a bull is hundreds of yards away. In my case, I think it could have saved me the trouble of stalking a sub-legal bull through the boggy terrain we were in. I also agree with AkHunter45 who commented on another thread that ultimately the call is going to be mine - and ought to be made using a closer, accurate visual inspection - such as the technique recommended by ADF&G (http://www. wildlife.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=pubs.video).
Here are a few threads about Leupy's RFIV - with Trophy Scale:
I would also be interested in hearing about anyone's field experiences.
One possible drawback to this RF is that it's bulkier and heavier than some other RFs.
I bought it at Sportsmans Warehouse (x-mas present to myself) there are alot of bells and whistles that I will probably never use and can be quite confusing. All I will ever use it for is ranging and is this a bull I need to take a closer look at. I'm going to assume it's within a couple of inches so I hope it will eleviate those pesky 45-48 inchers I've been mulling over.
