I just read an excellent article about a botched hunt with a Red Dot. First time the guy used it he had the adjustable reticle set too bright, lost his low-light vision and couldn't see the turkey's head. After he adjusted it, it was set too low and he couldn't a see the reticle. All the extra motion required for adjustment spooked the birds and made them nervous. When he finally got it set just right the sun was coming up, caused a glare on the scope right in front of his eye and he lost the dot reticle again. It was now or never so he tried to center the bird's head in the scope the best he could and fired anyway. He missed the turkey completely, cussed the new scope and was quick to point out that he would have killed the tom with his open sights. Then he had to apologize to the guy that called the bird in for him. Ouch.
Like I said, too much technology.... keep it simple.
