Check State Hunting Regs Before Mounting Electronic Sights

undefinedIn recent years archery manufacturers have heightened the performance level of everything from our bows and arrows to every piece of gear. In keeping pace with technology, just look at today’s bow sights. Would the archers of 10 years ago have predicted we’d walk into a pro shop in 2014 and find everything from single-pin and multiple-pin sights to advanced electronic sights? Truglo's popular water- and shock-resistant, CNC-machined PWR-DOT comes to mind to name just one. My friend says its Steady-Dot Technology helps to improve accuracy for more accurate groups, its precise aiming dot enables faster target acquisition and its wide field of view can’t be beat.

Just one word of caution: Not all technological bowhunting advancements are legal in every state. While advanced, electronic sights are fine for the target range, be sure you check—and then double check—the hunting regulations in your state before you go afield as electronic or battery-powered sights are not legal everywhere. Pins and peeps may be your only way to go. Either way, these new sights are amazing. It makes me wonder what I’ll come across at the pro shop in another 10 years!
