Hawke Laser Rangefinder Pro 600 Review


Hawke Sport Optics Laser Rangefinder Pro 600 Offers Hunters Precision Shooting.

By Nancy Jo Adams

As an archery hunter, I know that my rangefinder is the most crucial piece of gear I can have on the hunt in hitting my mark. Some hunters have a gift of being able to judge distance accurately. On flat ground, I feel pretty confident about judging yardage. Add vast open areas with some hills and valleys or the elevation of a tree stand and these elements can throw off perception. It’s no secret angling shots can fail miserably. I know, I have experienced this firsthand.


The most important feature I look for in a quality rangefinder is that the unit is capable of compensating angles for situations such as shooting from elevated stands, higher ground, or uphill. It is also imperative that the rangefinder can withstand heat, frigid temperatures, damp weather, and dust, all with a rugged exterior for outdoor use.

All modes offer a continuous distance reading by holding the ON button. The monochrome digital display is easy to read and contains all the important readings on one display, which includes mode, measured distance, angle, battery life, and laser level read out.
