Bushnell® Wins Predator Xtreme® 2022 Gold Award for Best Laser Rangefinders

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, has been awarded a Readers’ Choice 2022 Gold Award for Best Laser Rangefinders by the readers of Predator Xtreme® magazine.

One of the leading predator hunting publications, Predator Xtreme has been the destination for serious predator hunters for over 25 years. These annual awards give a voice to the publication’s passionate and knowledgeable readers, and allow them to share what brands they think are leading in the industry.

Bushnell was the first company to introduce the handheld laser rangefinder 25 years ago, and since then has continued to push the category with new innovations. In 2021, Bushnell released the Fusion X Rangefinding Binoculars and Prime 1800 Laser Rangefinder, both featuring ACTIVSYNC™ technology that automatically transitions readouts from black to red depending on lighting conditions. This year, Bushnell is introducing the Broadhead Laser Rangefinder, the most accurate rangefinder on the market with 0.3-yard accuracy out to 150 yards.

“Congrats to Bushnell for re-taking the Gold award in the rangefinder category – they were also Gold winners in 2017,” said Derrick Nawrocki, President of Grand View Outdoors, the publisher of Predator Xtreme. “To receive this accolade in such a highly competitive category is impressive and well deserved. This is a significant stamp of approval from a very passionate audience.”

Voting for this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards was conducted via an online submission system. Thousands of ballots were submitted by readers for various product categories andbrands. The votes were then tallied to determine the 2022 Readers’ Choice winners. These awards are used by countless sportsmen and women to get an inside look into the best brands to consider when gearing up for upcoming hunting seasons.
