Went out and only had 4 slugs as I forgot 2 boxes of ammo at the house but still had a good time. Killed a big male coyote, about 120 lb boar, and a big raccoon to end the night. This thermal shotgun setup is a love hate. Its cool but im tired of carrying that heavy SOB around on Ft Hood LOL. The hog I was about to start calling coyotes when I seen a heat signature come out of the woodbine about 400 yards away, I instantly knew it was a hog and took off across the field with tripod and gun trying to intersect him. He ended up coming right to me and I shot him at about 30 yards. The coyote I was trying to call some hogs and had just started Hog Feeding frenzy and he came running out to inspect. All in all a good night just wish I had more bullets so I could have kept hunting.

Shotgun thermal kills. Different but works 👍

Love the "dieing" cockroach position for the coyote. Nice shooting.

That's the way to do it!
Love seeing the warm wad peel off slug and go flying.

I bet you double check for ammo before you go out next time.

itís very effective. I think this was my 8th coyote and 17th hog with this setup and only been using it since December 1st. Killed quite a few more with same shotgun and day scope.

You're using mind control to make me go buy a rifled barrel for my Versa when I don't need it.

shotguns are surprisingly effective and versatile but Iíd much rather be using my 6.8SPC

not as bad as I expected. Not sure why it blows a big ole hole sometimes and sometimes it do t. Maybe depends on if I hit bone or not.

Thermal shotgun sounds fun but heavy if you need to scan a lot! Good job.
