For the last six years, I have been a dedicated crossbow hunter for the archery seasons. I had to turn to the crossbow after a battle with breast cancer, which left me unable to pull a compound bow. Since then, I decided I loved archery too much to give up on it so I switched over to crossbows. I have hunted bear, deer, caribou, alligator, zebra, and hogs. I like the calmness and solitude of archery hunting, and I need equipment I can count on.

TRUGLO makes a Dual Color Open Red Dot Sight for Crossbows, that features the trajectory compensation system. This system uses the fps of your crossbow to determine which reticle to use; there are four different reticles ranging from 300 fps to 400 fps. After your initial sighting in and selection of your reticle, the sight then should be tested at the various distances. There are two color choices for the reticle, which should provide greater contrast in any conditions. The 24mm X 34mm window is large enough to provide for “ultra-fast target acquisition”¹ and is parallax free from thirty yards. The sight is easily mounted using the integrated Weaver-style mounting system.

Another option for your crossbow or firearm is the Triton 30 mm. This tricolor reticle sight consisting of red, green, and blue, is designed to work in every situation and provide amble contrast. There is a pressure sensitive switch included, which will allow you to turn your sight on with undetectable movement. This attaches with a simple cord, which would be perfect when hunting turkeys, especially from the ground. The sight comes complete with a flip-up lens cap, and the integrated Weaver-style mounting system, and a detachable sunshade to eliminate glare.

I used the Dual Color Open Red Dot sight throughout archery season for deer. While I did not get a shot opportunity, I was pleased with the accuracy of the sight anytime I rechecked my yardage. I switched to the Triton 30mm at the end of the whitetail archery season in preparation for Spring Turkey. I intend to put the pressure switch to good use out in the field. With the minimal movement needed to turn the sight on, I need not worry about being spotted by a wary tom!
