Rangefinders, I heard it was illegal to use hand held rangefinders for big game. Is this true?

I was thinking about buying a hand held rangefinder. Due to the cost of one, I wanted to confirm if they are legal for big game or not.


Rangefinders are legal to hunt big game in Idaho with, as long as the rangefinder is not attached to a weapon (e.g. rifle, bow).
