A question for those who hunt whitetails in the Midwest: what kind/style of sight are you using and what to you like/dislike about it? Thanks much, I've tried many over the years and still haven't found the 'perfect' sight....maybe there is no such thing but would appreciate your experiences.

I have a Copper John Dead Nutz 2 Compitition. Its got a sight extension bar, gets my sight a little out away from my face, which I really like.. I also have an afterburner light on it.

I use the HHA 5519. I like the slider sight since there is only one pin and I can fine tune my distances. Its pretty bright but I kinda wish I had a light.

I used a Tro-glo extreme 3pin before this and I liked it alot except I used the wrong pin more than once and missed in the heat of the moment. Never again.

I like Spot Hogg sites. I could have bought a number of them spending all the money trying "cheaper" sites over and over and over.

They are built like tanks. I wouldn't want a site without micro adjustment again. And now they are as bright as they come if you get the wrap on them. The wrap also protects the fiber optics even more than they already were adding brightness and increasing durability.

Yes they cost some money, but like I said, I've spent way more money trying more sights and been unhappy in one way or another.

Now if I could only find my perfect rest....

I use a Savage pendulum sight. I have used others and then went to a pendulum and then back to a fixed sight. Now, I'm back to a pendulum and I love it for stand hunting from a tree at the higher heights.

Seems I always hit my deer much better with this type sight.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
