Glow sights (update) - recommendations

Recommended Posts

I checked the archive for old posts on the glow sights and thought I'd check back to see if opinions have changed. Has anyone anything good/bad to say about them? Thanks!

I've fo0und them to work well but only for turkeys & deer.As for waterfowl I do not like them.I have trouble keeping the bird in my sights as I start to swing the gun.BUT that's just me.

I also like them for turkey and deer hunting. But don't use them for anything else.

I had one on my Winchester a cuople years ago, it was handy for that first half hour before sunrise, but after that they serve no purpose. I just point and shoot anyway as opposed to aiming and shooting.

I tried one and coulnt hit anything, took it off any started hitting again. I actually shoot better with no bead on my barrel at all.

I have Easyhit Fiber optic beads on my shotguns and would highly recommend them. They are held on with adhesive tape and low profile. I had them on for a few years now and through just about any environment imaginable and they are never came off. They cost around 20-25 $ and well worth it. Happy Hunting Brian

If you're talking about fiber optic sites I have them on my muzzle loader & my 870 slug barrel. I really like them in low light, but even in general they're finer than the original slug barrel sights, so I shoot better with them. I've never used them for bird hunting.

I use a magnetic one that I can change colors on and to different guns. I use it for the morning and It really helps for the fast flying early ducks. I would suggest them.

My advise...If you are focusing on your "bead"....you will loose your lead. Always focus on your target and let your mind and gun do the rest.

Looking at the barrel stops your swing. Use a gun that fits, see the target and you will be more successful!

i love my green tru glo for ducks/geese/pheasants/doves.....it is wicked bright on the darkest of mornings, and I seem to do quite good with it.

on the other hand, my brother's glo sight just fell off his gun and the bead is gone too...but he can shoot geese better than I can (at least lately) so there ya go...good shooters will succeed with or without a glo sight...i don't know if i would have ever bought one, but i got mine as a gift and i like it

S.A.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
