    New Garmin Xero Sight

    Thought you guys might like to see this new fangled site. I'm sure it won't be legal in all states.

    Honestly....

    -Inline Muzzleloaders
    -1000 yard out of the box guns
    -Bows that shoot +300fps
    -Laser Rangefinders
    -Crossbows in Archery Season
    The list goes on and on and on.

    All this new technology is cool but do the animals have much of a chance any more?

    Personally I don't like it or think its a good idea.
    DIY Public land Elk hunts are not for everyone but everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime. And for all those younger guys that say I don't have the time, I don't have the money, I'm out of shape or I don't have the experience to do a trip. I only have a few things to say. Take the time to make a experience, Save the money to make the trip, Get in shape so you will enjoy the hunt and the only way to get the experience is to go and make it happen. Hunt on Mark!!

    When I first saw this I thought “no way do I like this for archery hunting.” However there are a lot of other technologies out there that make hunting easier, A scopes rifle for instance. We already are allowed to use range finders and sights during the archery season. Maybe this decreases the number of times hunters miss judge the yardage on a shot he is going to take regardless. Maybe it can be allowed during the general seasons but not the archery season. Maybe it should be banned entirely.

    It’s cool but it won’t be allowed here.
    ... because every picture tells a story

    I'm sure my grandpa said the same thing about those "new fangled rifle scopes" back in the day. I remember my dad was amazed at variable power scopes.

    Technology changes...companies are always trying to get us to buy the latest and greatest. It will never end.

    If you like the technology, get it. If not, then don't.

    I'm just getting in to bow hunting...first thing that ran through my mind when i watched this video was, "man, that's cool. I need it."

    Then I saw the price. I'll pass for now.

    As long as I'm on the other end of a rifle / bow, every, and I mean EVERY animal has a chance. Pretty damn good chance, the way I shoot!

    HA!

    Honestly, I had three initial thoughts.

    The first was- Ya the battery would die when I needed it most...

    Second was - I bet you that thing takes one of those stupid odd sized batteries....

    Third was - A lot can happen in 5 seconds (The time it takes to work the thing)

    From a technology side, very cool.
    From the hunting side, don't like it personally.
