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.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
