pahoo: i have thought about useing a redot in the past but i dont want to relie on electronics to work during the hunt.
As far as electronics, there really isn't much of that, in there. The biggest problem you will "eventually" run into, is a dead battery. Depending on service, that can take several weeks, to several months. I still have some in service for over three years now. You have to remember to turn the power off and in critical hunting, take a spare. It's almost amazing how well your eyes, mind and the Dot, learn to work together. ....
