RED D0T SCOPES?

5 posts in this topic

I have an inquiry in to the DNR, but another poster on the Xbow post in the deer hunting section mentioned scopes were not legal on bows and MLs. Does this apply to RED D0T scopes? I thought they were legal last time I checked. Thought the rule was no light could project out onto the animal. A laser sight does this but not a red (Contact Us Please) scope.

I would have to look the law up, but I believe you cannot have any scope on a ML. Doubtfull on the bow also.

Harvey Lee, just got a call back from DNR. Red Dots are legal on bows during bowhunting season becasue they do not project a light outward onto the animal. That is the key. The light moving outward onto the animal. If the lighted (Contact Us Please) is in the scope it is fine.

I wasn't really wondering about ML. I like my iron sites on that. I've just been hearing good things about red (Contact Us Please) scopes from a few bowhunters in other states so thought I might check them out as my current sight is cracked.

Thanks for checking that out. I thought they were all forbidden.

Nope. I found this out last year or the no outward light test for anything you put on your bow when I asked if it was legal to use a pin light during early and late shooting hours in the woods. Also, I asked the pro shop manager and he said they are legal.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
