This hunt was on a night with terrible conditions for thermal. 80% + humidity with standing water. Even though the conditions were less than ideal we were still able to take 10 out of a sounder of 12.

What gun are you using in the video?

Would you be able to provide what DVR you're using with the IRH MK2 please?
And, if possible, where you ordered it from?

Cheers

That is awesome. How far out can you see IR signatures?

With the MK II we are able to detect hogs past 1,500 yards of it's a dry night. They look like tiny white dots until around 300-400 yards.

The bae core looks better then the flir cores, I own.
Humidity not necessarily primary factor for thermal clarity. I have noticed dew point and ambient temp play a major role on the effect the humidity has on clarity. The closer the ambient temp is to dew point the worse the image is. When its raining 100% humidity thermal still works, as I was able to shoot hogs when I^2 nv did not produce a usable image in heavy rain. Once temp drops below dew point thermal works best for areas I hunt.
