New to NV but learned REAL fast how tiring trying to scan with it on the rifle. Looking to buy a digital hand held unit for scanning (not thermal due to $$.) Would appreciate any user advice on specific units that work good for you on hog/yotes.
Thanks for any advice!

I have a Bushnell Equinox that has great night vision without the use of an external IR Torch as well as very nice day vision.

It does eat batteries though.

Bushnell Equinox X


I had my patience tested... I'm negative.

Not sure what your budget is, but a PVS 14 is very clear out to about 400 yds. (I think you can get them for close to $1k now). I have a Night Owl Gen I handheld that is pretty useless beyond 50 yards without a full moon.

Another vote for the Bushnell Equinox X. Unless your budget can afford a thermal then I would suggest taking a look at the Pulsar Quantum line.


Happy Hunting
