Having reliable optics to help get a better aiming point on big gobblers is one way to put more of them on the ground. Here are several options for turkey hunting shotgun optics to consider for your gun.

TruGlo Gobble Dot Universal Dual Color
The Gobble Dot Universal Dual Color is TruGlo’s original turkey sight, but now features dual colors. Aptly named, the Gobble Dot universally fits any shotgun with a ventilated rib, regardless of width or tapering. Further, the Gobble Dot is endorsed by the NWTF.

Weaver Micro Dot Sight
Who says bigger is better? The ultra-compact Micro-Dot Sight from Weaver is a small optic that delivers big results. This non-magnified sight incorporates a 4 MOA dot, and easily mounts to most firearms. Brightness is adjustable to ensure optimal viewing in virtually any setting or condition. Top that off with generous eye relief, and you have a recipe for success. For more information, visit www.WeaverOptics.com.
Nikon ProStaff Shotgun Hunter
A constant 3.8 inches of eye relief means a safe and comfortable shot with even the hardest hitting magnum loads. Nikon’s fully multi-coated optics produce crisp, clear and extremely bright images. The innovative ProStaff Shotgun Hunter 2-7x32mm scope features ¼-MOA click adjustments and Nikon’s rugged waterproof, fogproof and shockproof performance. Other features include the BDC 200 reticle, zero-reset turrets and 98 percent light transmission. For more information, visit www.NikonSportOptics.com.
Aimpoint Micro H-2
On technology’s leading edge is Aimpoint’s Micro H-2. It’s lightweight and runs for up to 50,000 hours on one battery, thanks to ACET technology. With upgraded optics, the Micro H-2 improves light transmission and clarifies the red dot. Fully waterproof, the Micro H-2 is available in two red-dot sizes – 2 and 4 MOA. And, it features 12 brightness settings for varying light conditions. For more information, visit www.US.Aimpoint.com.
