I just don't see how I would need a night scope anymore as about the only thing I ever hunted at night was racoons and coyotes and I don't really hunt either one anymore. I am not certain that hunting coyotes at night is still legal in my state, but it might be if no light is needed. Of course hogs at night would certainly be a great use for your scope. They are nocturnal and that would be a great help. Lots of $'s invested there.

I am mostly scarred of the dark. Well, maybe not, just getting lazy and old joints and bulged discs have about limited my fun anymore.

Let us know how that thing works for ya. That scope and a good led head light would have made my youth night hunting a whole lot more enjoyable. Or at least a whole lot easier. I spent a lot of nights wondering around in the dark after my old carbon zinc batteries had played out. I finally got a carbide lantern and that would work as long as I had brought enough carbide along.

I do hunt coyotes but I refuse to pay that price for night vision.

Thermal and night vision are two different things. Thermal doesn't work off of light, it uses heat signatures instead and the image you see in the viewfinder shows the difference in temperatures between various objects. It not only shows people that you may not be able to see due to low light, but can even defeat camouflage. It is also useful for finding marijuana plants in corn fields in the dark because of the difference in heat the two different plants put out, and can show skid marks at a traffic accident scene that aren't visible to the naked eye.

I'd love to have a FLIR scope but that's just a little out of my price range. Plus I'm retired and don't need it that much.

Most of the cars I've owned in my life didn't cost that much. Do let us know how it works, though.

I would love to hunt coyotes at night. I have read buying
guide articles on the thermal scope and found its
usefulness for night hunting, but I
still
fret because its value is not small.
Need more advice,thermal-scope-reviews/">buying guide articles on the
