As per requests- this is a "Sticky" for equipment and gear information and discussion that may be specific to hunting more so than anything else airgun related. For example, sighting devices not attached to an airgun, stands or blinds, etc.

what are your prefered optics? scope, red dot, laser sight, open sights and why do you prefer them?
i hunt in a forest most of the time so a scope will simply not do Crying or Very sad so i have been using a laser sight, it makes work a lot easier in the forest and still can be used in a more open area....with limited effectiveness because of its need for shade for the dot to appear.

a the red dot from the laser will show up better the darker it gets but it also gets harder to see your prey and at times a scope may come in handy becase of its light gathering effect...
i also enjoy the open sights i just feels like a more natural way to hunt.

Hm, there are a lot of affordable field target scopes, for different distances, and mil-dot may be usefull too. A lot of these scopes are fine. I use a cheap N2optics now, with a illuminated reticle. Works fine when it's darker.

I'm not that much of a hunter, but I recon that it's not that much different from field target, only that the targets may be moving.

A powerfull rifle would help as equipment. Mr. Green

Side note: Might be usefull, and fun, to put a bargain hunt for north american citizens here?

Bargain hunt? Like this page: http://www.airgunhome.com/pages/pricepage.html

Or maybe you mean something altogether different?

Dang...

Don't know what it is, but lately, I'm forgetting or reading over things a lot. Neutral

I use a scope for most everything. I also have a laser target
designator for close up, inside work. Lasers are harder to work
with at longer distances and have to be readjusted for each
given distance. It is very hard to estimate hold over/under
with such a device. They are very effective for indoor barn
ratting though where you are working in an enclosed space.

This is what I've found to be true in my situation.

Hi...I don't take alot with me out hunting, I use Tasco 3/9X40 scopes on all my guns and carry a clip on bipod a small back pack to carry the bunnys in. Depending where I'm going shooting I will take the quad saves a long walk. For night shooting possums/bunnys I have a gun with open sites we usaly spot light from the back of the ute "pick up"

when I hunted dumpsters at night for rats I found that the Leapers illuminated scopes worked best, the 6x bug buster because it focuses down to 9' was my choice. Red dots work well, but sometimes you need the magnification for those head shots.
