Reach Out and Touch 'Em: Turkey Gun Sights

New technology is stretching the limits of what turkey loads can do. It’s time to get a sight for your gobbler gun to match. Most of these can perform double-duty on your deer rifle, too.

Whether he’s at 10 yards or 50, with the Weaver Kaspa VZT Turkey Scope 1 atop your scattergun, no tom is safe. This 1X-4X-24 mm unit sports a nitrogen-purged tube and fully multi-coated lenses. The Verticle Zone Turkey (VZT) reticle tells you when a gobbler is in the kill zone, providing two vertical ovals for ranging birds at 20 and 40 yards.
MSRP $260

The specially designed turkey reticle found inside the new Triton Red-Dot Gobble Stopper 2 from TruGlo will tell you whether that longbeard is inside or outside 30 yards. The available red, green and blue illumination and detachable sun shade will keep you going in any light condition; the remote on/off pressure switch saves battery life.
MSRP $111

The Aimpoint Hunter 34S 3 is a great red-dot optic for those looking for fast target acquisition without magnification. Along with a sleek design, illumination intensity is easily adjusted from a digital, top-mounted pad. Not only will this rugged optic stand up to abuse in the turkey woods, but with the incorporated ACET diode technology, you can turn it on and leave it on for up to five years on a single battery!
MSRP $900

The XPS2 4 from EOTech is the company’s shortest and most compact holographic gun sight yet. With 20 brightness settings, the red, holographic reticle puts your shot on target no matter its location within the heads-up display window—perfect for those times when your contorted position among a blowdown won’t let you get your cheek fully on the buttstock. A single 123 lithium battery provides up to 600 hours of power.
MSRP $539

Designed specifically to absorb impact and divert stresses away from the lenses, the RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex ) 5 from Trijicon may be the toughest reflex sight on the market today. An automatic mode adjusts the intensity of the dot reticle to suit ambient lighting conditions, while controls on the sides of the lens housing allow you to change brightness across eight levels to fit your preference. Lenses are fully multi-coated, and the RMR is waterproof up to 20 meters.
MSRP $708

Weighing in at just 1 ounce, the new Redfield Accelerator reflex sight 6 is perfect for those wanting a crisp sight picture from a small, yet shockproof and waterproof, red-dot sight. You’ll appreciate its unlimited eye relief and wide field of view when you have to shoot a longbeard that catches you off guard by sneaking in from behind.
MSRP $199

For those who prefer a peep sight, the Beard Buster 7 from Dead Ringer is an adjustable, universal front and rear sight combo. The light pipe replaces your front bead, while the rear sight mounts to the rib of your shotgun. Great for new shooters, it forces you to keep your head down in the proper position, and the rear sight can assist in gauging distance. MSRP $24-$30
