Which Red Dot
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.

I'm with Deer Dad on this one. Been there/done that. Red dots are useless in the prime half hour of first light in the morning and last light in the evening. I replaced mine with a fixed 4X scope and couldn't be happier. The 4X is good for ten yards or two hundred.
