Default I went thermal!!,

Well, I finally went thermal and will say that it is awesome. I took apart my trusty Leapers/Rem 700 combination and put the Pulsar Thermion XQ38 on it. It was easy to use, considering this was my first outing with it. On the video, you will notice me fidgeting with it a bit, but the results were beyond my wildest dreams! That chocolate milk is my traditional celebration on the morning after! #foxprofs

I don't own any thermal. But am lucky enough to get to use it once in awhile. To me, it seems like having a super power at night. Glad you have it and hope you get lots of enjoyment from it.

The difference is in the lack of IR lighting. It definitely spooks both fox and coyotes. Except for the fact that it is more difficult to ID targets, thermal rules!

Great to hear. I just bought a thermal monocular to scan with and Iím on a waiting list for a new pulsar thermal rifle scope too. So Iím pretty excited. After hunting with only red lights for over 25 years Iím ready to try something new here.

I can't aford $3000 to $10,000 for a hobby.
But I may be able to do something like this.
https://www.nightvisionguys.com/atn-...hermal-clip-on
ATN TICO LT 160, 19 mm Thermal Clip-On
$1,699.00
It looks like we could share this with my hunting buddies ( son D-I-L)
And maybe split it or something.
Any thoughts, I don't think it records but we could use our day guns.
JUNK or reasonable idea?
I can say if we get another "COVID" check I would do it without splitting it.
We do collect the fur when it is good some years we get a hundred pelts, but as of late it is down to under 50, my guess the stupid ones have all been shot.
One way or another I think thermal is the new wave in calling.

By the way good shooting I hope to be out after hunting season. 5 weeks...
