    Thermal Night Shooting Gear - Pard NV007

    Hello - I've been looking at the UK guys videos of this gear ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SF_7du0HGLg) . . . . and wondering. We do a wee bit of local pest destruction work, certainly not enough to remotely justify the "professional grade" thermal equipment but this unit which should land for under NZ$1000 might be justifiable?? https://nightvisiononline.co.uk/prod...ard-nv007-16mm

    Has anyone used this sort of gear here for Rabbits/Wallabies/Hares. Do they react to the IR beam (i.e. if they are already "light shy" do they see the IR) ?$

    The main advantage of this unit that I can see is the ability to use it across several rifles (assuming they all have the right type of scope and an adapter fitted) without any zeroing issues. The advertised battery life and the use of the common old 18650 is also attractive>

    Thermal is way better but it costs .

    Used good thermal gear culling wallabies recently - if I could afford it thats the way to go. IR isnt in the same leaque.
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    There are plus and neg for both
    Clarity with NV with extra IR better than Thermal which is good for scope/sighting
    NV you use more easy in daylight which happens after pre dawn hunts occasionaly
    Thermal for locating is 2nd to none though

    Its all bulky stuff though
    Just set up my Baikal with NV and it still weighs in at 10.8lb :-(
    Batt pack and IR attachments dont help - but I can break it down into pack with Baikal
    Do the locating 1st with Thermal then set up for shooting take 20-30 secs

    No Thermal at moment - hope b4 Spring
