Breast pocket of my shirt or release side pants pocket. I find the key is to range things early on in the final stalk which lessens the need to range in the critical moments

I have an outdoorsmans bino pouch that has an additional pocket for a rangefinder. Works way better than any harness.

MM, all of my bumbag/daypack options whether Sitka or Eberlestock have small pockets on the waistband.
Because I'm right handed, my rangefinder goes in the right hand one and is connected by a cord to the zip puller so I can't lose it.

Mine lives in the waistband pocket on my pack now,have also tried around neck but with bino's its a pain.Thinking of a small open top pouch on waist like rock climbers keep there hand chalk in.MM

Sits in my right hand pants or jacket pocket depending on what layer I'm wearing. (Just gotta remember to use it! Grin) still at that learning phase!

In the front pocket of my pack, because if I spot something that is far enough away for me to have to worry about ranging it, 9 times out of 10 I'll have the time to pull it out.

I run mine on the right side of my Bino harness. I just run the bottom strap through the belt strap on my rangefinder pouch and halfhitch the lanyard around the same strap. Easy access and you after you range an animal you can just let it hang and donít have to fumble around getting it back in its pouch or your pocket before you shoot.
