Open sights have been used for years with great success, so I think your comment about ethical shots was in jest. At least I hope it was. My experience is personal. My father took at least 25-30 deer with open sights during his life. He never owned a scope. I have taken 4 with open sights myself, but I've been using a scope for a long time, now.Midnight Rider said:I actually thiught they would be cool but I was led to believe that they were no better than open sights and those should be outlawed for hunting (making ethical shots).
