looked at some infrared night vision rifle scopes made by
Pulsar.

Very impressive. for 'otes at nigh would be great.
i think Dale was looking at one.

Good usable one was $2990 with lots of extras. $3k buys a
lot of bullets and powder!

These from ATN are almost affordable, adding upgraded IR Illuminator, is supposed to make it more useful.

The Pulsar I was looking thru was a FLIR system. It was
very impressive.

thinking how great it would be and the ability to easily
see a 'hot' coyote on those cold sub-zero montana
nights. These are scopes and have crosshairs.

Battery last about 6 hours (less in extreme cold); but
they have auxiliary batteries that just plug in.

Costs were high; not sure I'd use it enough to make it
worthwhile expenditure. Because it is looking for body
heat you can actually see thru vegetation.

All I can remember about the night coyote hunting here in
Maine is the shivering between the shoulder blades that
would not stop. No matter what you wear, if you sit still
for 1 1/2 hours in sub zero temperatures you are going to
get cold. That was before the chem heating pads in the
days of the Moon Boots.

But Bear, go for it man. You might not want to in 3 years
or so.

Iron men only, hunt at -32 F.
