The Aimpoint red dot sight shines
When a dog is holding it at bay, a moose will usually try to retreat into a densely forested area, and it is precisely in this kind of tricky terrain that the Aimpoint sight really shines. Whether you are hunting moose or wild boar, your senses must be razor-sharp. When the chance at a shot arises, it can make all the difference to be able to simply raise your gun, keeping both eyes open, and instinctively take aim and fire. In such moments, seconds, or sometimes even milliseconds, are absolutely crucial.
In my opinion, when you are hunting with a dog and need to keep track of its position in relation to the moose (or, for that matter, to keep track of the cow or calf, if they are involved), a traditional sight is a distraction. The time it takes for your eye to adapt may be enough to miss your chance at a shot or lose sight of your dog.
It’s all in the details – using an Aimpoint sight is often the difference between success and frustration.
