I have a friend who lives on 200+ acres and has a major hog problem. He has set up motion detectors and gets up regularly in the middle of the night and shoots what he can with a spotlight...often within 100 feet of his house!
He wants to try hunting with night vision or thermal imaging. He hunts with a pump .308 and 12 gauge semi auto but knows very little about guns beyond those two. He is an experienced hunter and good shot but has no real night hog hunting experience.
He told me he wants to get an AR and he wants to shoot .308 so I think that means AR-10. He asked me about night vision scopes and/or thermal imaging scopes.
I know nothing about optics so I told him I would ask the forum.
Given that he will be using an AR-10 what can you recommend for him to buy or at least check into regarding night hunting optics.
He did not mention prices. I will say he definitely won't go the cheap route but he most likely won't be looking for $3000 equipment either.
All information is welcome as I will pass it along. He asks me about the forum all the time but doesn't spend time online so he won't join-or even lurk!
Thanks in advance.
