I believe in optics on turkey guns. Or to put it another way, I seem to need optics on turkey guns. After a spate of misses earlier in my turkey hunting life, I mounted scopes and red dots on my guns, and I haven’t missed a turkey in (knock on wood) about ten years, I think. These days, my guns have red dots. I have shot turkeys with Aimpoints, Burris FastFires, Meopta Meosights, Truglos, and the Zeiss Z-point, as well as one or two others whose brand names escape me.
