Iron sights and low light?

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting over my bait last Sunday night and a nice bear comes in with 5 minutes left of legal shooting time. I drop the barrel of my T/C Renegade on him and I can't see a thing. The whole barrel of my gun seemed to disappear against the black of the bear. Of course there was no moon last weekend, so that didn't help but short of changing over to fiber optics what can I do to make the front sight more visible?

I was thinking of putting a little "white out" on it but is there something that might show up better?

Get some phosforous white paint, the same paint they use for glow jigs!
Thats what I use and it glows well into the evening low-light espeacially under the canopy of leaves of the early season.
I also bring the light emmitting "tazer" that glows them up good! Good Luck!

I was at Gander Mountain looking for glow sights for my shotgun and saw that they have glow dots for iron sights on rifles now. They looked like they would be very effective. Something to think about.

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
