A friend and I booked a hunt with Dry Creek ( Witchita Falls ) for this past Thursday night. It was nightvision hunt on milo fields. They can provide NV but we both used the unit I make in 2 AR rifles. Most of the spotting was done with the guides ( Keaton ) Thermal. This was my first experience with thermal and I gotta say it was AWESOME. Sadly, being a regular guy with 4 kids I gotta stick with digital NV scopes for now. We both had a good time and killed 5 total plus 1 that we believe was a hit but he just sucked it up and kept moving. I definitely recommend hunting with them and plan on booking again, though the drive was kinda rough! ( 342mi from here ). Here are a few pics

Mike,
That's some nice hogs. Be careful looking through Thermal, I've never done drugs, but it's gotta be similar to doing illegal drugs. LOL
If you make and sell a few more of those, I can see one in your future. banana

Thanks, the thermal scope was definitely addicting. One of the fields we hunted hadnt been cut yet and the thermal made a huge difference.

Sounds like a nice hunt. I have to say I agree with your impression of thermal. Since I'm past the dad with kids stage I just picked up a N850 digital scope and a HD38A thermal scanner. I can't say enough good stuff about the pair.

Yes sir. Very accomodating and obviously knew the properties well. Honestly, if it wasnt such a long drive I would book another hunt for the next week or two.
