Thank you Buckmaster, I heard the sights are crap, any idea where to get a better set? Also I want to put on a scope with see thru mounts, any thoughts? This is my first go at this and its a little confusing. Regards - Gordy.
I had a see-through scope mount on my .30-06 at one time. Got rid of it. It sets the scope too high. I came to the conclusion that I had to decide if I wanted a gun with a scope or a gun with open sights. Now I have a scope mounted down as low as possible. Much better.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
