Thanks im going to start looking for both, do you have any suggestions on sights that are good for both 3d and hunting, i prefer to have a model that is good for both because im on a tight and limited budget.

I would say go have fun. Most shoots we go to won't allow range finders so I would just learn to judge distances. If you shoot hunter class most shots are 35 yards max.

Carry your rangefinder in and out of work or where ever and look at things to judge and then check them with it. This is good practice.

I got into 3D two years ago to sharpen my skills at judging distances and to have fun. I don't change anything on my bow, except the quiver. I wear an arrow quiver with pockets on my belt. Once my bow is tuned well, daily practice in my back yard is far more important than what arrows or accessaries I use. If you decide to get serious and try to win tournaments, you'll see that most pro's get a separate rig just for 3D. Don't forget the bug spray as is warms up. Have fun, I do.
