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 think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
