I myself am not a big fan of them. I do have a couple friends that have them on their shotguns. They say they like them and that they are accurate, but saying that I have hunted with them and heard the one say that its a pain to adjust the brightness from dim at early shooting hours, to bright during high light hours, then to remember to turn it back dim again when its late afternoon. The other guy keeps leaving it on, and the second day is always complaining the battery is dead. He always has spare batteries, but there in his gun case back at the truck, doesnt help much when you are aiming at a deer! I would spend the money and buy a good scope, you wont regret it.

I have a bushnell Halo sight and it has been very good. I replace the battery right before season and I have never had a problem.

It has no power so you can shoot with both eyes open.

Several people I hunt with also have red (Contact Us Please) scopes and really like them.

I use a red in the middle type scope and would not trade it.I use it on a slug gun.

No eye relief distance like a scope,no need to close an eye to see through the scope which makes tracking a moving animal easier, great for low light conditions.

The draw backs are no magnifacation,batteries are a small worry considering I get 2 years typicaly out one,dimming and brightning the site for light conditions wich are not that tough. My biggest complaint would be the limit amount of adjustment. I think mine is 5 minute of angle and that makes it tough to fine tune for longer shots.

Batteries and hunting equipment don't make much sense to me, but I have never tried one. A good friend has one on his turkey gun and hates it. Real hard to see in bright sunlight.

      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.
