The concept is the same as those railway sights for pistols so it should work fine.

I do however have 2 concerns with this sight.

1) In order to reflect the dots properly, the lens needs to be at least partially silvered. This will reduce the available light through the sight and "may" mean that your shooting time is reduced in low light conditions. This fact may be offset by the fact that you aren't using a peep which does something similar so it may be a NET 0 change.

2) The lens itself. I am not a fan of lenses on hunting sights. Way too much potential for water droplets to collect on the lens and obscure your aiming point. I have hunted in some pretty crummy weather and would have been SOL if I had to deal with glasses or lenses of any sort.
