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 was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
