Bow hunting the mid west can be extremely brutal on equipment. I have encountered everything from sitting in a tree stand enduring freezing rain to crawling in the sand and mud through an open field for hours, only trying to get an opportunity at a shooter. Equipment has to be tough and dependable for the ever-changing conditions, and I wouldn’t trust any other bow sight but a Spot-Hogg. I recently upgraded my sight to a Spot-Hogg Real Deal after shooting the Right On sight for the 2 years prior. My expectations were quickly exceeded as soon as it was in my hands. Like all Spot-Hogg sights, the Real Deal has a solid rugged design, made from 6061 aircraft aluminum and is built to last.
After mounting it on my bow, the micro adjustment knobs and the individual micro adjustable pins made it very simple to adjust and fine tune to all of my yardages. The Bullet Proof pin design used on every multiple pin Spot-Hogg sight keeps the pin fibers well protected from any element you may encounter in the field. In addition to the Bullet Proof pins, Spot-Hogg also offers the Hogg Wrap. With a “wrapped” sight, you’ll never have to worry about seeing your pins when the moment of truth arrives. The extra long fiber optics draw in ambient light to help your pins glow in low light conditions.
A built-in feature I find myself using every time I shoot is the precision bubble. This bubble helps me make sure my bow is perfectly vertical so my shot placement is spot on whether I’m 20 or 70 yards away and anywhere in between. I personally prefer the 5 pin sight with .19 pins. I believe with 5 pins that I can easily acquire the right pin when a quick shot needs to happen and still have plenty pins to reach out to 70 yards. I really like the .19 pin size for hunting because it is easy for the eye to quickly move the pin to the animals vitals, which is especially important in a situation when time is a factor.
The Spot-Hogg Real Deal 5 pin wrapped sight comes in at around $200 and has a lifetime warranty to back it up. A great price on a great product that is durable and will last many seasons to come.
