    I like hunting turkey so much. But recently my friend asked me a question and I was so confused.
    He said, rifle scope or dot sight, which one is better for AR15 to hunt turkeys?
    Honestly speaking, I am really puzzled.
    He share an artcle to me but I am still confused.
    This is the article. What's your opinion?

    If rifle scope, type 1
    If dot sight, type 2

    For hunting turkeys with an AR-15, a rifle scope is more suitable than a dot sight for several reasons:
    1. Magnification: Scopes offer magnification, which helps you see targets clearly at longer ranges, whereas dot sights are non-magnifying.
    2. Accuracy: Scopes allow for more precise aiming, especially at longer ranges, which is crucial for ethical hunting.
    3. Range estimation: Scopes often have reticles with subtensions that help estimate range, making it easier to judge distances.
    4. Light conditions: Scopes perform better in low light conditions, common during early morning and evening hunting hours.
    However, dot sights have their advantages, such as faster target acquisition and ease of use in close-quarters situations.
    Ultimately, the choice between a rifle scope and a dot sight for turkey hunting with an AR-15 depends on your personal preference, hunting style, and the terrain you'll be hunting in. If you're hunting in open fields or at longer ranges, a scope might be a better choice. If you're hunting in dense woods or at close ranges, a dot sight could be more suitable.
