Dead-On Range Finder:
The Dead-on range finder is universal and fit most bow sights easily.
1.Clean the side of the bow sight.
2. Peel the protective back off of the Dead-On Range Finder to expose the adhesive surface.
3. Apply the Dead-On Range Finder to the bow sight where it will give you the best view of your target game animal and press firmly.
You do not need to 'line up' with any of your sight pins.
4. Place the fibre optic pins in their positions starting from the bottom belly pin. Add the rest of the pins as you calibrate your range finder.
5. Choose an animal first and cut a gauge stick so you can calibrate it.
6. Once you have your product installed, and the pin set, your site will look similar to this example of a 3 pin sight.
Dead-On Range Finder
Your Dead-On Range Finder is now ready for your next Big Game Hunt!
Of course, we highly recommend that you practice with the range finder at various ranges* to familiarize yourself with the Dead-On Range Finder.
You will find that integrating the "ranging" process into your shot steps is effortless, quick and can be performed at a full-draw.
Tips for greater success with the Dead-On Range Finder:
Match the colour of your Dead-on Range Finder yardage pins to the colour of your sight pins.
Then simply range a colour, and then use that colour of sight pin. No need to count your pins.
You can set up the range finder for two different animal species by using two different colour fibre optic pins. Example: green for Impala setting and red for Blessbuck setting.
Practice quickly ranging your target and transferring to your shooting pins in a smooth, slow-motion effort, relying on the high-visibility fibre optics of the Dead-On Range Finder.
Calibrating your Range Finder:
Cut a gauge (stick or board or an old arrow) to length:
Black Wilde Beest 598mm
Blue Duiker 175mm
Blue Wilde Beest 729mm
Bush Pig 553mm
Harte Beest 504mm
Greater Kudu Male 715mm
Greater Kudu Female 520mm
Lessor Kudu Male 546mm
Lessor Kudu Female 416mm
Lion Male 693mm
Lion Female 511mm
Nyala Male 484mm
Nyala Female 396mm
Rhino White 1216mm
Rhino Black 1040mm
Steen Buck 263mm
Waterbuck Male 625mm
Waterbuck Female 475mm
Wild Dog 300mm
Zebra Burchel's 625mm
Zebra Grevy's 687mm
Place the gauge next to your target.
At 20m, the gauge (from top to bottom) must fill the 20m space on your Range Finder.
Do this for each distance you would like to shoot.
Fine tune your Range Finder's fibre optic pins by moving them to line up with the gauge.
Note: some targets will actually be close enough to the right size to act as the gauge for calibration
(just bracket the target before you shoot and you will become a lethal weapon in the hunting field)...
