Well, opinions are like weeds, you can get a lot all over.
What I would recommend is to find the best one within your budget, wait, get the one just outside your budget. This will cause you to wait and save and while you obsess with your hunting catalog thinking about it you may change your mind once or twice but once you have the money you will like whatever you choose.
I do recommend any type of rangefinder. Just be able to get back to your gun or bow in time to get back to business. Don't overly rely on the rangefinder but enjoy the addition help it provides to be dead on which is all you really want anytime you are hunting.
