I really like this sight and I wish other brands had the PiP (pic in pic) capability. The ability to have two different levels of magnification for sighting at the same time is genius.

Four hogs shot, three recovered.

Dang you have a lot of pigs to harvest.


One shot is all it should take.

Well, there were a bunch of cows there was well (in the background). I tried counting and could not see more than 23 pigs at a time, but could not ever see all of them at the same time, either.

Good example of not shooting towards the cows. A bedded cow could be easily mistaken during the excitement.

Your videos are great teaching tools. Thanks.

Good shooting Brian,

You are getting much better at 'maintaining' your lead on the running pigs. So many folks pull out ahead then stop their swing (lead).

Good job!

Thanks. Knowing your field of fire and determining safe directions BEFORE you start pulling the trigger is important, and then always being willing to stop pulling the trigger and letting the hogs go is as well. It won't matter how much you have helped the farmer by killing hogs for him if you end up shooting his prized cow.

The pig flip was awesome. Way to get him before he attempted to fly.

Flying hogs are an understated problem!

I love your videos. They are great learning tools for how to lead on running shots. I may have to upgrade to the Trail XP50 from my Apex XD50A. Was that video shot with the on-board recorder?

Steve, the Pulsar raw video is just slightly fast and so does not sync up well with the audio I record. I had to do several manipulations to the video to sync it with real time audio and I am afraid that it suffered in the process. Pulsar has already made one change to improve this, but it still isn't quite real time. They are supposed to have this issue resolved this month, I was told by my contact at Sellmark. Here is what the real shot sequence looked like in Pulsar time and with no sound. Notice that the image is much more uniform and so that tri-bar shading in the original post is an artifact of the work done on the video.

Brian, that's dang good shooting for the conditions you had, small field of fire, lots of moving targets, and deeper grass with some rolling terrain.

You are making me want one of these scope pretty bad.
