Which Red Dot
July 22, 2012 at 5:15pm
I would not recommend a red dot sight. I had one on two guns and had the same problem twice. Late in the evening or early morning you can't see the deer behing the red dot. Your attention is focused on the dot and you cannot see the deer. Thats my two cents. The red dots are great at the range and any other time time hunting. I chose to use iron sights for my gun I use in thick woods and a 2.5x-7x for areas with longer ranger possibilties.
Good luck the 45-70 is a hammer.
