    This is unreal! Def not for everyone but pretty amazing what technology has become. I’ll be sticking to my HHA, maybe in a few years I’ll pick one up in the classifieds cheap when they make a bow that shoots itself :rolleyes:

    I always thought a rangefinder built into a sight would be cool. I guess it should come as no surprise that the idea would be taken several levels further.

    No thanks.

    I just read up next year's upgrade to this sight. They are attaching a mini ozone machine to it.

    And a device that plays realistic deer sounds while shooting out Tinks 69....all attached to the sight. It will be great.

    Don't be rediculous...Deer calls. For near a grand, it has to know if I'm hunting elk and have realistic elk calls too.

    Agreed. I also think the sight also be tied into a "hunting dummy" which can hunt for us while we are at work. The sight will aim for the dummy and he can kill the deer while we are at work. All we have to do is pick up the deer and tag it.

    Sure would be nice if the animal were at least gutted too. But I guess you can't ask for everything.

    The off season for you too, eh?

    I think we can solve that problem. Somehow integrate this with the sight. Add a saw blade to it and the deer will be gutted upon our arrival.

    Hmmm. I think something is missing.

    I think maybe some of this "technology".

    I would rather have a working dummy that works when I am hunting. Shouldn’t be too much difference between that and reality. It ought pass casual inspection.
