best bow hunting sight???
Im looking to see what all you think is the best hunting sight. I am looking for a tough (aluminum) camo rest that can withstand the wear and tear of bow hunting. also good bright fiber optics...any suggestions?? thanks

price is a factor but if you have something in mind that is expensive let me hear about it

spot hogg with wrap.
if you are in the military they offer a great military discount.
if your looking a lot more budget look for a good used copper john in the classifieds
a bow with wheels, and one that is a stick

I've had good luck the last 3 years with vital bow gear sights. Take a look at them. I think thier pins are as bright as any. all aluminum construction, never broke a pin either. they're worth a look.

I've tried several multi pin and single pin sights. By far the best sight for the money is the Sword Twilight hunter. The Spot Hoggs are good too but very pricey.
