Hello all. I'm planning to come to Texas for a hog hunting trip. Never done this before, so I'm gearing up. I've bought a DPMS G2 Hunter and an ATN X-Sight 5x18. I'm not really impressed with the IR torch the X-Sight came with, even ATN recommends upgrading. It's OK out to 100 yds or so, but I'd really like to be able to see whats around me at much greater distances, even if I won't shoot that far. I'm wondering what you've had success with. I've read different wave-lengths can be more or less recognizable by wildlife, so I'd like to balance useful distance with how much it will spook my prey. I'm a complete novice, never used NV before, so I'd appreciate the thoughts/opinions of those with experience. Thanks.
