Do you guys that shoot red dot type scopes find that your head has to be way up to see through it? I just mounted one and its so high that my shooting form needs to be terrible in order to see through it

Is it a tactical red dot or more like a fastfire?  The smaller fastfire or venom are pretty low with a simple rail installed.

I did, but my mossberg came with a cheek piece that was replaceable with one that was much higher. Before I did that I had to rasie my cheek off the stock a bit and sort of rest my chin on the stock instead.

Burris speed bead (fast fire mounted between receiver and buttstock). if it dies i can still see through it and use the stock bead at the end of the barrel.

No idea tacks.  is the vent rib higher than the receiver.  Mine has a rail on the receiver (drilled and tapped receiver to install) and works well.  Or maybe you can relocate your eyes a bit higher.  I know a Guatemalan plastic surgeon that can do it for you.

The stock/receiver mount for the FF red dot is pretty slick.  it does keep it mounted very low.............

Actually it’s fairly common. My AR I set up, like that , back up  flip up iron sights (  Magpul ) that are easy to see and shoot through the red dot .

Some co- witness them ,that is the red dot is set to be right on the top,of front iron sight .

Mine stay down , just buis ,if red dot fails .

Daughter takes her hunting course first weekend in may then we are going to try and kill a turkey.  So we went to the range today. She shot the H&R 20gauge and mossberg 500 20gauge.  Shes going with the single shot.  Grouped great out to 30yrds and small enough for her to lug around all day if needed.

Out this am after rains cleared on public land in 3g. Very windy and tough to hear well. Got one confirmed shock gobble to a crow call and that's it. Have a good sense where this tom has been hanging. Hopefully he stays to the area for the opener.

Heading out early from work on the 30th. Hope to roos one for the next morning. Good luck to all.

Not a good start for me in New Jersey. 4 Days hunting so far.  I have heard just 1 Gobble in 4 days. That was today at 5.48am. One Gobble and done. Today was my most enjoyable morning so far though. Had a nice  Talk with Tom- a Turkey Hunter who parked next to me. He has not heard any Gobbling either. And , I also had a nice Talk with a Mountain Biker at 6.45am in the middle of the Woods on a Trail. They get out very early too! I might not cut a Feather this Spring at this rate- LOL! :this:

All you need is one, then end it with a bang.

You need to shoot again Bill, no way you can trust that.
