Burris enters the archery market with the Oracle, a new bowsight that provides the exact distance to target and a precise aiming point.
Video: Oracle — The New Rangefinding Bowsight From Burris

For more than a decade, rifle hunters have relied on the rangefinding and ballistic laser scope technology found in the Burris Eliminator LaserScope. At the recent NRA Show in Dallas, Burris introduced the Oracle laser-rangefinding bowsight, which instantly provides compound bowhunters exact distance to target and exact aiming point while at full draw. Check out the video below to see this high-tech bowsight in action.

The Oracle eliminates aiming between pins by instantly calculating and displaying the exact aiming point for any distance and shot angle. The laser activation button mounts to the riser for quick, convenient access.

A quick push of the button activates the built-in IR laser rangefinder. Within seconds, the range to the target is shown along with an illuminated pin for the exact drop and angle-compensated aim point.

The illuminated aiming pins are displayed on the vertical LED trajectory bar running through the entire midsection of the sight. The bar also displays a fixed 20-yard pin for a constant reference point when ranging targets. If the ranging is unsuccessful, the sight will display standard dots in 10-yard increments starting with the 20-yard pin.

Call It a ‘Smart Sight’

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. According to Burris staff, most bow setups will be able to achieve 80-110 yards depending on bow speed and arrow weight.Burris Oracle bowsight

A durable, all aluminum, water-resistant housing ensures reliable performance in the field. The Oracle features a glassless sight window to prevent glare, fog or debris from blocking the target. Locking micro adjustment knobs allow for quick and precise tuning while preventing accidental tampering in the field. Second and third axis adjustments allow for extreme fine-tuning.

Oracle optional rear peep system.

An optional rear peep system eliminates the need for a string mounted peep sight and improves shot accuracy and consistency by helping the shooter properly torque the grip.

The Oracle bowsight automatically detects when the sight is mounted for a left-handed bow and reverses the LED readout. A single CR123 battery will power the sight for approximately 1,000-2,000 cycles.

The new Oracle bowsight will be available in Summer 2018.
