Batteries for trophy ridge site

Recommended Posts

erikwells

I keep my bow about 100 miles away from where I spend the work week (work week Bloomington, weekends New London). That said I shoot a Bear Legion bow I purchased with the ready to hunt package. It came with a Trophy Ridge site and I discovered last weekend the light is not working. It takes 3 batteries I discovered after I unscrewed it. I neglected to grab one of the batteries to match up to buy new ones. Can anyone tell me which type of batteries I need? I assume it's the batteries are dead.

Thank you,

Erik

LR41 or 392's should work for that light. Check your local archery shop, Walmart, or online.

Just took mine apart to check. It contains 3 AG3 batteries.

Mine is on the Trophy Ridge Flatliner sight.

Thanks. I of course discovered my lite was not working during an evening hunt last week. I was in the woods not too long after sunset

I already had no business shooting. Thanks again.

Just to clarify, AG3's are the same as the two types I listed above. All the same size, different makes is all.

how long ago did they change the law for being able to use lighted sights?

Good question. Looking in the regulations, that point is not addressed as legal or illegal.

Just got off the phone with MN DNR Enforcement officer. They specified regulations for bow, and was told illuminated sights designed to illuminate the pins are legal. Laser sights that project a red dot and those designed to illuminate the deer are not legal.

Wow, never used to be. That really promotes shooting after legal shooting light, so much for fair chase.

I beg to differ. Have you ever tried them lighted sights? I tried mine target shooting one evening and all it does is make the target disapear. At least that is what I found.

I'm talking giving you an extra 10 minutes in the stand, it's past legal shooting light, time to leave, but you can count points on a buck 15 yards away yet it's just dark enough where you can't see your pins.... now turn on a light.

No i haven't used one it used to be illegal and assumed it still was.

I just got back into arcery this year and my new boe the sight came with the light so I have only played with it shooting at the target. I do know on sunday evening I had another 8-10 minutes of legal time and could not see my sights anymore sitting in a blind. Should have played with it then.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.

      Dragfoot, where do you go trail riding up there? South of Roosevelt?
