I’m guessing I killed 100 plus game animals last year with the crossbow alone, many of them I could not have done with a red dot alone because of light conditions or discernment of terrain and vegetation, and those ballistic plex reticles mean a lot for my type hunting.

I’ve tried an EOTech XBow red dot on one and it just could not get the job done.

I do push the envelope because the only goal I have is a dead animal. I don’t like to be hindered by limiting factors, especially self imposed. Live to hunt, hunt to live.

I’ve analyzed the crossbow effectiveness pretty darn good. I can afford any crossbow setup they make and I stick with the 300-340 Matrix with Nikon Bolt and ACOG.

Happy hunting

Lots of folks trying to talk you into using the scopes they like. Not many trying to answer your question though. I have been thinking about trying out a red dot also. Would it help if I told you the two main scopes that I am currently using? :eusa-deadhorse:
robertb,
so would it be better in your thinking for people to give opinions on scopes they have never used :?:
Nope! it would be better to just give an answer to the question asked. :crazy:

Nothin to do with brand names ? was red dot compared to scope usage as my original post & that’s all . This is why I don’t get on these forums very often . Some don’t read & understand posts then when shown they get offended . Hard to learn anything that way . Thanks all I’ll go back to just reading . Happy trails .

Many times I find the lack of answers a person claims is based on perspective. I also find advice not only differs because of experience but what one’s definition of hunting is in the first place coupled with bias.

Here in Texas a red dot perfectly set at 30 yards to a corn feeder with a timer set for an hour before dusk, with no obstruction betwixed shooter and animal, would be considered hunting for many folk.
