Your bullet will hit high when shooting uphill or downhill. Angle compensation equipped Rangefinder will automatically gave you the corrected distance when ranging in an angle. This feature is very handy when hunting in a mountainous terrain where there is a possibility of an uphill or a downhill shot. Leupold have these on their RX-III and IV rangefinder. They're reasonably price but it's made in China. I never use one but a friend has one and he like it a lot. I use the Swarovski Laser Guide Rangefinder for several years now and it's one of the best out there IMO. Before that I used the Nikon 800, and it was a fine rangefinder but it has a limited ranging capability for the type of shooting I do, so I switched to Swaro. Save your money and buy the best.
They appear to be the cream of the crop in the reviews. I just read one where they used the Leica 900 on safaris. In the review they mention that the CRF series units do not incorporate trigonometric software for angle compensation. What does that mean?

This right here is the truth. For predator calling they just ain't necessary. A flat shooting rifle is way more handy.If you just want one I'd get the Leica. I bought the 900CRF and it's a really nice piece of gear. Funny thing is the first one I bought worked for all of 15 minutes...don't know what happenend. Called the place I bought it from and they exchanged it for another...no problems since.Main reason I bought the Leica...besides their solid reputation was they have an illuminated readout which is nice in low light. I thought it may work well for night hunting but truthfully trying to accurately range a set of eyes is next to impossible. You WILL get a readout...of a rock or bush a 100 yards in back or front of the eyes. I've tried it...that coyote is 260...no wait 175...no wait 340 yards away haha. Once again...flat shooting rifle takes out the guess work for stuff in reasonable range.
Just for coyote hunting it won't be necessary as the distances won't be great enough to matter.
