New Product Spotlight: Bushnell Truth Laser Rangefinder with Clearshot


For bowhunters to go the distance, they must know the distance. Now, a new product from Bushnell takes distance two steps further.

First, the device compensates for elevation, so that you get a true shooting distance. That feature isn’t new, but Clearshot is. Clearshot determines obstructions in the path of your arrow and tells you whether you have a clear shot. Wow! Here are the details from Bushnell.

The Truth with ClearShot TechnologyThe new Truth with ClearShot Laser Rangefinder is designed to help bow hunters ensure every shot is a clear shot. ClearShot technology provides a simple, instantaneous notification that determines if the hunter has the clearance necessary to take an unobstructed shot. Using an easy-to-follow three-step process, hunters can calibrate the rangefinder to correspond with the speed of the bow via their sight system.

Following calibration, when a target is ranged, a line appears in the reticle displaying the apex of the arrow’s travel. If the dot intersects with branches or other obstacles, the hunter knows the arrow won’t clear the obstruction. Conversely, an unobstructed dot indicates there is a clear path to the target, giving the hunter confidence to take an ethical shot.  Featuring the exclusive Angle Range Compensation technology from Bushnell, the rangefinder accounts for terrain angles to provide the true “shoots-like” distance from 7-199 yards. With simple and convenient one-button operation, The Truth with ClearShot provides lightning fast target acquisition from 7 to 850 yards. Four power magnification and a 430 foot field of view (at 1,000 yards) combine to make it the ultimate archer’s laser rangefinder.

The Truth Laser Rangefinder with ClearShot Technology has a minimum advertised price of $279.99. For more information about Bushnell and its complete line of sports optics, visit
