  • single vs. fixed multi pin sight for hunting?

    So, let's here your opinions re: single pin adjustable vs. multiple fixed pins for a hunting. I'm not interested in 3D or other target usages.

    Well, I'm not in to killing bambi but I love to shoot 3-D and when it comes to pins, I have to have vertical pins or a single pin. The horizontal cause me to shoot left every time. I think its a mental thing since I hunted with a rifle all my life and looked at a vertical front sight before the scope came into play. OH, I do love the venison however. You kill em, skin em and I'll join you to eat em!

      I like a single pin slider for hunting mainly for the reason that where I hunt I'm lucky to get 25 yards. the good thing about the slider is if I get a chance to shoot longer distance I just move the sight.

        If I went back to the single pin sight, it would be the slider. I had one and liked it alot better than the wheel.

          I love single pin sliders. Very seldom does a guy have to shoot over 30yds. Set it at 25 and your good to go. If I were to take a shot at 30+ the circumstances will have to be right and I should have time to move the sight. I'm shooting a Vital Bow Gear with the angled pin. Gives a great sight picture...

            The jury is still out on this end. I have a centurion and boss hogg single pins. A couple hogg it and hunter hogg it fixed 5 pins on my bows and like all of them. I will say the fixed 5 pin hogg it is still on my favorite GTO hunting bow but that could change. I know this helped you out a whole lot. You are going to have to try them all out and see what tickles your fancy.

              Multiple pins for me. I take too much time ranging to try and adjust my sight too.
              Where I hunt your better off picking a point ahead of you to range and try to sneak up as close as possible. No way to tell ahead of time how thats going to work out.
              If your good maybe 20 yards But Im not good and 40 is more the norm.
              I can set in a tree here for these muleys but they have a different plan everyday then I do. so spot and stalk works best for me.
              No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

                  I like a 5 pin for hunting. Early season sometimes leave my scope on since I hunt alot of field edges but come rut I'm in the honey holes.

                    I'm a single pin guy as well, I have tried a few times to go back to pins, but it just don't fly for me anymore. With a single pin sight, your target picture is always the same no matter the yardage, and never cluttered. Not saying multi-pins are inferior, I bet they are better for certain people for what ever reason, just not for me.

                        Single pin Ascent sight for me. No slider. You have a round knob for adjustment. I can still mount a quiver to the sight if I want to.

                          i have to go with the single slider, makes me think about the distance before i shoot. KISS and repetition drive you to shoot better.
