    NIGHT VISION VS THERMAL FOR HUNTING

    For any day hunter, learning how to hunt at night can be exciting, new and challenging. Before planning a night hunt, check with your local Department of Fish and Game for any hunting restrictions in your region. You want to make sure you are able to legally hunt at night. The human eye is genetically designed only to see along the visible light spectrum. Our eyes, therefore, fail us in the dark. But we’re smart, and we’ve developed vision technology that allow us to engage in nighttime activities, such as nighttime hunting, which was previously harder to do.


    Both night vision and thermal imaging assist a hunter in detecting, recognizing and identifying his targeted game animal. The choice of night vision and thermal imaging is weighted by several considerations.


    RECOGNIZING AND IDENTIFYING GAME


    Thermal imaging lets you view objects at night by identifying the heat signatures given off by an animal or person. Once a live animal has been detected a hunter needs to recognize it and identify it as the targeted game. If using thermal, images are displayed as black and white or various shades of color. Even though a live object can easily be detected using thermal, recognizing it and identifying it as the desired game at a great distance is more difficult. When using night vision, visible light energy bounces off the game and a detector receives and turns it into an image of the animal. Thermal will affect by extreme cold weather and night vision without this kind of problem. As a rule the image is more easily recognized and identified as the targeted game to harvest using the night vision capabilities under ideal conditions. Traditional Night vision relies on at least some ambient light for detection making detection at great distances more difficult. If hunting at night the moon and stars should provide sufficient light for it and cannot be used in bright light because it will damage the intensifier tubes that make a night vision scope work. But the new CMOS night vision can solve the problem perfectly. CMOS night vision can use in white and dark night as well and will never worry about burnt out when exposed in strong light.


    DURABILITY OF THE SCOPES


    Another item for consideration when choosing between night vision and thermal imaging is the durability of the equipment. Both night vision and thermal can withstand up to a 30. caliber recoil.


    PRICING


    Price is also a very important factor to consider for many hunters. While thermal is better for detection, it is definitely pricier than night vision. Thermal imaging is newer and more costly technology to manufacture. Night vision has been around since WWII and is much more available and affordable.


    Having the ability and experience using Thermal and Night vision based on over a 1000 hours of combined usage, in the field hunting, identifying and detecting predators.

    We are here to help you decide, and make an educated choice on Night Vision fits your budget and specific application.
