This is what I would do. Use my rangefinder to scout out 50 yard intervals down the range of fire using trees, fence posts etc as landmarks before the deer shows up. Then when Mr Deer comes ambling across you know instantly how much of a hold over you need. Kind of the old fashioned way but that's what I did when I used to hunt my Uncle's apple orchard many years ago. Did not have electronic rangefinders back then. We just paced it off but I bagged severals whitetails that way shooting out to the 250 yard treeline with a 4X Sears and Roebuck scope. Got one with iron sights and a 303 Enfield. I knew exactly how far those rows of apple trees were apart so it was a simple matter.
