Night vision or good old red lamp?
My stalking butty (yes... I'm Welsh) has just bought an infrared filter for his deben, i have a Yukon NV monocular and the other night we went out foxing and gave this night vision thing a go.... before going the whole hog and buying a dedicated NV scope for his .243.
while holding the NV and infrared lamp the fields were lit up like a summer afternoon (I'm sure some of the older lad/ladies on here can remember the sun shine) and as expected, along came charlie.... clear as day. "THERE'S ONE.... Shoot it" I shouted through a wispered voice, "WHERE" my mate said, turning to look at him with dismay I realised he couldn't see a thing.... "brilliant these NV things" "Aren't they" i said smiling.
Off with the filter and boom with the 243 saw that one off and we took all the NV stuff back to the car and had a good night with the trusting old red lamp.
I think the NV kit is great if you're a loner but it makes the lamp man a bit redundant.
