Default Range Finder

What do y’all use for a range finder? Or is it necessary? I have been looking but really don’t know what to buy. It will mainly be used bow hunting but occasionally I may use it rifle hunting coyotes as well.

I like my Leica Geovid HD rangefinder/bino combo - one less piece of equipment to bring to the field.

Leupold 1200 TBR’s are good too.

I use an old Halo z6xn that I got on OfferUp for 40 dollars and I think it works well. I scanned a white tail at 50 yards and the focus has fairly good range. Saying that, I have never used another rangefinder and am only speaking from my personal experience with this single product.
