Good job, guys!
It seems that the basic fear mechanism for cattle is to freeze. Horses tend to run full speed, which is why they're often contained in smooth wire fences. Cows usually freeze or just wander away from the action.
You can never have too much ammo — unless you're swimming.
Great job fellas. What setups are y'all running for your NV optics?
The shooter was running an ATN X-Sight digital. Along with other things, the popping in the video is unmistakable.
I had cows run between us and hogs the other night. You never know what they will do.
Looks like y'all had fun and that is what it is about!
My rig (I'm the old geezer struggling to open that gate quietly) is an Alex Arms Grendel with an N750; on nights like this with no moon I tack on a UNV torch to boost the view-
Interestingly, earlier that evening the gentleman who owns those cows suggested we hunt that pasture because the pigs were roto-tilling the heck out of it. When we expressed a reluctance to go because of the cows, he replied, "I'm pretty sure you know a pig from cow."
That ain't no X-Sight , it's a 6.5x PhotonXT and the popping audio is attributed to the Angel Eyes KS-650m DVR.
The thermal monocular is a Pulsar xd50a.
This field had a slight high center grading off away from us which made it hard to see past 150 yards that's why the gun raises every so often so I can cast the light further out to ensure there aren't any cows acting as backstops.
