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!

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
