Red Dot Sights

2 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of trying a red dot scope on my turkey gun. Have any of you had experience with these? Do they hold up to shotgun recoil?

Several of hte guys I hunt with have used them. Some still do and wouldn't switch for anything in the world. Others have moved to low magnification shotgun scopes. It's all about what will work for you.

Will they hold up to shotgun recoil? Well you generally get what you pay for with the red dots as well. The cheap ones often fail due to recoil issues.

I'm an open sight guy myself for turkey hunting. It's just what I like and it works for me.

Good Luck!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
