You never know how long the wait is going to be so it's a tough call whether to keep it on or fiddle around when the time comes, assuming you get a chance to switch it on without being seen.
Turkey season ended yesterday.
I have the same fears as you about a red dot running out of power in the middle of the day or something. That's kind of why I am leaning to a good scope. The Bushnell banner shotgun scope wont break my wallet, and has a "turkeyplex" (?) reticle. Still, the Leupold scopes are so sweet. They have the raincoat lenses available too. Good to have.
