I have tried it. Apparently my laser was a bit too powerful and when it would hit the hair on the hog, I would get "bloom" such that my dot became several square inches in size.
I have hunted with folks who use it and they seem slower to shoot than with using their night vision sight. They worry more about watching the dot than steadying the gun, trying to steady the dot more than steadying the gun, is about the only way I can describe it.
It can certainly work, but animals also will notice the IR laser when shined at them. They won't notice the dot which they can't see, but the laser itself which will glow and appear bright to them.
