Have been reading threads on optics choices and it got me to thinking, does anyone use open sights any longer when hunting? My dad insisted I learn to hunt with open sights so to me that feels natural. Used a Marlin 30-30 and Browning 30-06 lever actions for years, open sights, never had a scope. Got my first scope when I bought my first bolt action rifle 15 years ago. Still practice open sight shots out to 50, 100 and 200 yards when I go to the range, my scope mounts are all quick disconnects. Only rifle I own without fixed sights is a new Delta 5 in 308 win. For DG where shots are normally close, I’d think open sights would be more the norm or maybe they are and I’m just missing that.
