Default Night Vision

I went varmint hunting last night and killed two coyotes and 1 hog. The equipment the guide has is amazing. Three shots, three kills.

Looks like you have been soaking in as much Georgia as you can before heading to Florida! Where was this hunting trip at? What kind of distances are you shooting with the night vision? I have seen some trips like this advertised.

this is awesome... hope it catches on.... wild hogs cause a lot of damage...


and every night when taking the dog out, i have to stay out with her, for concern about yotes grabbing her as a quick snack.

Neat stuff. Looks like a D760 on the rifle and is that a thermal unit on the lanyard?

Night Optics D760 on the rifle. Night Optics D740 on the lanyard.

The guide had a really sweet FLIR Thermal that cut through the fog on his lanyard. Without it I would have never shot that hog. I had a hard time finding it in my scope. The fog was so bad I had to leave the Streamlight Super-Tac IR off to see anything through it.

"FLASH" has a whole new meaning through a night vision scope.
