You can change the chosen foe when you hit a creature with an attack or using your bonus action.
If you are able to cast spells, you can't cast them or concentrate them while in primal rage. Your primal rage lasts for 1 minute. It ends earlier if you are knocked unconscious, or if your turn end and you haven't attacked a hostile creature since your last turn, or taken damage since then.
Once you have raged the number of times shown for your Range Ranger level in the Rages column of the Barbarian table, you must finish a long rest before you can rage again.
Close Quarters Expert
Starting at 2nd level, you don't have disadvantage when making ranged attacks while within 5 feet of a hostile creature.

When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.
Ability Score Improvement
When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Starting at 9th level, you hone your instincts, improving your primal rage. You can choose one of the following benefits. You can choose another at 13th and 17th levels.

At 18th level, you gain preternatural senses that help you fight creatures you can't see. When you attack a creature you can't see, your inability to see it doesn't impose disadvantage on your attack rolls against it.
You are also aware of the location of any invisible creature within 30 feet of you, provided that the creature isn't hidden from you and you aren't blinded or deafened.
At 20th level, you become an unparalleled hunter of your enemies. Once on each of your turns, you can add your Wisdom modifier to the attack roll or the damage roll of an attack you make against one of your favored enemies. You can choose to use this feature before or after the roll, but before any effects of the roll are applied.
Path of the Beast Tamer

In addition, once per turn you can forgo one attack to allow your companion to make an attack instead. When you attack with the companion, you make an attack using your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier, instead of the creature's attack bonus.
If the companion has an ability that requires a saving throw to avoid, it uses a DC equal 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Constitution modifier.
- Bestial Fury
At 3rd level, when you enter in your Primal Rage, you summon your Animal Companion in a place you can see within 30 feet. If your animal companion is already summoned, you can teleport it to a place you can see within 30 feet.

When casting this spell in that manner, it lasts for the duration of your rage, and don't require concentration to maintain. All conjured animals are treated as Animal Companions.

In addition, you can spend a use of your Primal Rage to cast conjure animals out of rage. When you do so, it works as normal.
