Default Bushnell Elite 1000 W/arc technology for dual hunters

Dual being Rifle and bowhunter. Do any of you use the Bushnell Elite 1000 W/arc technology. If so do you like it. I cant afford 2 seperate rangefinders and this seems to do both. Im not going to shoot deer past 300 yds so Im thinking this may be a gr8 buy.

That is the same range finder that I have decided on getting. Seems to be the best for the money. I won't be able to get mine untill October, due to that is when I will be back in the states and can get one.

I just wen't through the same search not long ago. Check out the Nikon Riflehunter 550. Good optics, simple to use, and I got one for 240.00. It will range a deer out to 550 yards, and will give the true horizontal distance, or can be easily set to give actual distance. Same as ARC, just a different way of naming the function. The Leupold looked like a great product, but seemed complicated. The Nikon looked even simpler than the Bushnell. I don't know about you, but I like to keep it simple.
