If you are hunting from a tree stand I'ld go with any of the top rated ones that have the archery angles in them.  Leupold makes a couple of nice ones along wtih the Nikon's.  Just don't get caught up in gagetry while you are hunting.  Learn how to tell distance by the size of an opject while you are looking at it with the naked eye.  And when using a range finder do it when you get into the stand on trees bushes and rocks and not when a deer is walking in

I swear by my buhnell yardage pro scout. It is a couple years old and doesn't have the angle adjustment but it has never failed me.
