    @Pengy year the prices here are not to bad....where it gets tough is taking them from one country to another, you could risk chucking it in with the rest of your camera equipment...but if someone in the know spots it you lose it plus bad books with the authorities

    Havent read the 9 pages but my 2 cents is this

    Back in the day people said using a scope was unsporting, its just another teck no logical advance if it didnt happen we would all be using bows and clubs.

    Sorry to dig up an old thread but has anyone had a go with the night tech thermal imagers? The HD 25 looks like comparatively good value

    I'd love one as a handheld. Plenty of wallabies need culling that are spotlight shy.
    I also know of a private place where deer and pigs are doing damage but also light shy.

    I have both Hand held Thermal and Rifle mounted Thermal now
    I am not rich becuase of it - but :-(

    However - I hear your concern and thought same 18 months ago - HOWEVER - I have since learnt and witnessed that there is also a positive towards safty as one can identify human at 1k + before dawn and evening where scope/bino cannot give such clarity/difinition

    SO - it can spin both ways - unsafe-safe

    I wonder what the impact of all the electronic 'tools' we have available to us will be on the future hunting?

    The number of hunters is surely rising.
    The tech available to make hunting easier keep getting cheaper and better.
    Electronic callers, gps, thermal etc

    I might have a crack at long lining deer, a set of 200 hooks should get me a few. Any idea for bait?
    Use enough gun

    You cannot beat two strong legs and 2 good eyes (which unfortunately some of us are losing - think about it ??

    If you need a thermal to locate deer then you should also be entering in the special Olympics.
    300CALMAN and 40mm like this.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Used a spotter the other day in thick woodland, lets you spot deer easier, but that does not mean you shoot more. My mate who's a guide agrees with this.

    Anyone can spot a deer, but not everyone can spot all the deer in a area
