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.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
