Ask yourself “ is there a price to my dignity?”

If the answer is no, there is your problem.

I bought into night vision a couple of years ago. It was a stunning upgrade in capabilities. That success and comments here convinced me to buy thermal (Hogster). Sadly, it is all but useless  in my environment.

We live on heavily forested property in the southern Appalachians. The trees all read "hot" and there is nothing but thick trees everywhere. The only reason I have kept it is that it would be devastating for defending our long approach road if the world goes to hell.

It's zeroed and ready with 77-grain OTM, but every time I open the safe, I ask myself if perhaps I shouldn't part with it.

We have a lot of trees here too, and they can still be quite hot at night.

So the AGM doesn't have this issue? Good to know.

If you over 50 and in good health sell a kidney. The odds that you will need both are low.
If you have two kids and both are boys pick the boy who is the slacker and sell him. Statistics show the slacker will turn out to be a life long financial burden.
If you have more than two kids the choice becomes easier. Remember always keep at least one boy to carry one the family name.

Will clearly say V2 in the description, larger battery port, and single lever QD.  They're new models that just got released.

Yes it is.  The V1s have been on sale for awhile.  35-640 V2 is $3,999.

I can't speak for thermal, but night vision on rats is easy out to about 70 yards. With an IR illuminator their eyes stick out like laser beams. Couldn't justify thermal for my use on rats and a pcp air rifle, doesn't mean I don't want one though.

@Donut777donut


Oh you got thr new one I see

miscuze miscuze


No the burn protection is like a overload protection. For the device


Say your outside and there's a small fire

As your looking it overloads the sensor


Protection for your investment



I learned this at home o. My property


I grab bundles of sticks and tree trunks and light them on Nights when there's no wind


I went to see what was out there and as I glanced over the fire


Whoa the image was like a over load

From that point on burn protection was turned on

Give those batteries a good charge before using and see hiw long they last I. Cold weather versus warm weather


And down load the t vision app so you can see images on your phone

Put it on your homeowner's or firearm insurance policy if you can.
Link Posted: 2/21/2024 7:24:10 PM EDT

I went a different direction and bought a MH25 first for helmet mounted spotting.  I have this paired with a pvs 14 for nav as we walk and stalk at night allot.

I bought a cheaper AGM Rattler scope on black Friday as I already have a 640 core on my head and that will tell me what I'm looking at and whether to even get out of the truck or side by side.  From there we will close to 100-150 yards and in that range the cheaper thermal scope shines.  

I switch between a 270 suppressed savage precision on a bog tripod, and a suppressed 300BO AR that has IR and laser for up close shots. A suppressed markIV with a NV MRDS comes along as well for armadillos.

We typically hunt in pairs, and put guys up in blinds or stands at the choke points, and my buddy has a nice 640 core clip on his AR Grendel and some other night scope equipped rifles for stationary hunting spots.  We're still new to this game though and constantly learning and discovering what does and does not work.  

I say build and buy your gear based on your scenario and needs.  We're covering 2k acres and mostly hunting hogs and yotes.  

Most important thing is to actually get out there and use it.   Nothings sadder than thousands of dollars in gear that sits in a safe rotting away...

Interesting.  Exact issues I had with T Vision on Apple products.  AGM connect has been flawless so far.

640 is where it's at.  I'm not so patiently waiting for someone to put a 1024 or 1280 core in a 3X-3.5X base mag scope.

I wish it was mine,  it belongs to our buddies, the property owners who allow us access for help with up keep and other responsibilities... we have a group of us in an informal hunt club that help out where we can.  Has a huge spring and lake so I'm the fish guy. Very blessed to have access to that much land.

It's a great setup. I have 3 other farms I hunt as well along with our family property, which are all between 100 to 200 acres,   but the hogs are all on the 2k ranch for the most part.

Edit to add:  for those that are budgeting, I'd suggest trying to get both a scope and a scanner.  Even if you downgrade the quality to get both.  You'll spend more time scanning than behind the rifle typically.

I guess if you're going to hunt stationary from one spot and are calling in yotes then go big with a good core on a scope,  but again it depends on your property and what you are looking to do.

Assess your needs then by once cry once.  Night time antics is addictive. I look forward to night hunting more so than deer season...

Definitely lucky

Land in west va was cheap


I should've bought a 40 acre spread 40 moles further for 125k in 2019

Then all the folks from northern VA and parts of New York and new jersey somehow decided to buy alot of it to avoid what happened in 2020 and how it was cheap

But the bad weather and 48 hrs to clear back roads after snow storms and 2 hour drives tk the supermarket has made  alpt of them rethink  living there

Plus there Lil dogs and pets disappear courtesy of wiley coyote and other things that bite

And the jerk that sets off tannerite at dusk and during open houses makes people go who the hell


Prices got stupid since I bough my place in 2019

I paid like $875 for my TS25 Rattler on black Friday and I've shot out to 200 yards but I knew exactly what I was shooting due to having my HMT. It beats my 100 yard range under nods with passive or IR Laser.  Eventually I'll upgrade my thermal scope,  but I'm still a poors in this game...

As for land ownership,  they're not making anymore and the time to buy was a few years ago.

Markets softening here, as I'll be buying 200 acres or so when I find the right property that checks all my boxes.

Having somewhere to use your thermal and NV though is def a factor that should go into your buying decision.

Woods and yard when it's dark?

I have very few areas in the woods where I can see past 100 yards.

Around the house,  probably half the area is under 100 yards.

I can't fathom the point of a thermal for under 100 yards?

I live deep in the woods where sight lines are very short. Someone could be 10yds away in the brush, and you won't see them with your NV unless they move. It's an invaluable tool you just set up different than guys yote hunting on the plains. My magnification is usually handheld for having a closer look at stuff. 1x on the rifle or laser/coti is perfectly adequate for shooting and maintains the situational awareness that is needed in that environment.
