Peep Sight vs Scope

Would you believe the peep (aperture) sight is better than a scope? According to the experts, when it comes to hunting close cover and identifying the game with the naked eye, nothing beats a peep for speed and accuracy.

Still and all, the scope IS the easiest sight to use. If your scope is properly zeroed, all you have to do is put the crosshairs on the sweet spot and squeeze the trigger - no sight alignment needed.

i agree that the peep sight would be best for dense forest hunting because when the game hits you by suprise its hard to compose yourself enough to get your cheek and eye in the exact right spot to see through your scope
