Oracle Rangefinding Bow Sight

The Oracle laser-rangefinding bow instantly calculates and shows the exact aiming point for any distance and shot angle.

The Oracle will learn the trajectory or drop for two different arrow configurations and will accommodate up to 176 inches of drop at 100 yards. Most bow set-ups will be able to achieve 80-110 yards depending on bow speed and arrow weight.

The Oracle bow sight automatically detects when the sight is mounted for a left-handed bow and reverses the LED readout.  One CR123 battery powers the sight for 1,000-2,000 cycles.

Oracle Rangefinding Bow Sight is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I had to be one of the first to get my hands on this sight. Have been hoping for a sight like this for years. It did not disappoint. Easy to install and sight in like most other quality sights. Aligning the laser took a bit more time and draws than I would have guessed, but with a little patience is pretty straight forward. Calibrating the trajectory to my setup was a slam dunk with just a dot difference than the preloaded setup. It is awesome to just draw, range and shoot from any yardage fast and accurately. If you can swallow the price tag you will likely get instantly addicted like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on! I must admit, I am a huge skeptic when new archery gear comes along. I must have 100% confidence in my gear or it stays at home. This seemed too good to not try out. I got the sight set up and dialed in within one evening, although you must draw your bow a fair number of times to get dialed in. Putting it to the test I shot at random distances and angles from 10-70 yards, wow. Just wow. I love the fixed 20 yard pin and vertical bar which just gives me more confidence the pin is exactly where it needs to be. You can tell it was designed by a hunter. It saves the time and movement of checking your rangefinder before drawing. This will be money during the rut when the bucks don’t sit still.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING SIGHT I have a problem seeing and this sight with the green lights is very bright and easy to see inside and outside in the bright sunlight. It was easy to set up there are so many videos out about setting it up just pay attention to what they tell you. Great sight and great customer support job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable The Burris Oracle is by far the best archery sight I have ever used. I'm the kind of guy that typically sticks with simplicity to reduce the risk of equipment failure but I had zero issues with the Oracle and its durability. I put it to the test last season in rain, snow and sub zero temps and it never missed a beat. The Oracle simplified the process of getting on target and boosted my confidence as a hunter. In one easy motion I drew my bow, ranged the target, adjusted to the new pin and let the arrow fly. There is no glass to fog up and a fixed 20yard pin even without batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome unit! Have had this for a month now, was very easy to set up and sight in. I totally agree with the other review about the default pin brightness. It’s easy to turn down but goes back to being too bright after 90 seconds then you need to turn it down again. Would have given this 5 stars + if not for that. Still would highly recommend this unit with its forever warranty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Oracle is a game changer! A range finding bow sight that gives you a corresponding pin...genius! The benefits are obvious, but being able to range while at full draw is by far the most important in my mind. Gone are the days of stopping a deer by grunting and having them string jump you because they are alert. No more guessing yardage, pin gaping, picking the wrong pin, or failing to consider angle of your shot. The Burris engineers thought of everything with this site, you can tell they are hunters and NOT lab rats who have never set foot in the woods. It’s simple design makes it easy to set up, extremely durable and the best part….NO GLASS to get all dusty, scratched, muddy, and wet which gives you a clear view in all hunting/shooting conditions! The bottom line, is this is the best archery site on the market, no questions asked. The oracle is comparable to the invention of the compound bow. More hunters will be successful and less animals we be wounded as a result of this sight. I LOVE IT!!

I've read all your reviews and Questions but haven't heard anything about how the unit performs in Rain and snow. Does the Rain on range finder lenses effect it in an way? is the sight water proof by O'ring seal ? thanks for your time.

Asked by: Illinois 01
Hello, The sight is waterproof. However the range finder shares the same inherent limitations of all range finders. You could find it difficult to range targets in snow or heavy rain, and fog. One thing we recommend is to ensure the lens that the beam is from is kept clean. Rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip every now and then will help keep debris from building up.
