Well my shooting partner has a new toy and its the fourth time its been in use.
Must say mighty impressed roe at rediculous ranges and watching rats on a ploughed field ayt 50+yds is impressive.
Last night located a vixen in the miidlde of what was effectively a ploughed field except it was a horse paddock, unfortunately unapproachable as we were upwind and walking/stalking through 6" of gluppy mud.
Very intresting to see reaction to call (terror) and legged it and watched to well over 500yds.
Very impressive bit of kit, however we did get a big vixen in a lambing field by traditional means.
Looking forward to seeing performance on a very cold night.
Must say bit of a steep learning curve id the thermal image of animals, first time i saw a fox at close range thought it was a lynx as appeared to have no tail. Sheep wool is a very good insulator.
