    Is There Any Advantage To A Long Sight Mount Vs A Short One For Hunting Purposes ? I Notice The A Lot Of The More Expensive Sight's Have Longer Riser Mounts, 3-5 " Vs 1-3" ??

    The further out you have the pins from your face the more accurate they are and the more likely it will be to have multiple pins that are usable (ex: 20 - 30 - 35 - 40 - 45...) instead of 20 - 30 - 40.

    That said unless your hunting something extremly small at long yardages you won't see any real improvement over a short mount and a longer one.
