The most important feature in a rangefinder used for hunting is tilt technology. Rangefinders with such a feature will return the horizontal distance regardless of the relative inclination / declination angle. This is extremely useful because it will preclude having to factor in the elevation each time. If you use the true distance, your range card will be off if the angle is anything other than the actual elevation of the target. In other words, with a tilt technology rangefinder, you can calculate everything at zero angle and your distance will always be the horizontal distance.
