A good ghost ring peep sight works very well. My friends that use that are very happy with it as it's fast and accurate.
I like to use premium ammo especially Corbon DPX with the 300 gr Barnes or the Winchester 300 gr Partition. Less recoil with the 300 .I assume the game in VA will just be deer but in any case it's been rare for me to need any more than one round !!
