Trijicon purchased IR Defense last year and is aggressively moving into Thermal night vision devices. The first four products include the IR-Hunter and REAP-IR thermal riflescopes, the IR-Patrol thermal monocular, and the SNIPE-IR thermal clip-on. One of their target markets is hog hunting.
We know hog hunting! It is one of our favorite activities. We were fortunate enough to receive one of the first IR-HUNTER thermal riflescopes to hit the field. It is impressive to say the least.
Trijicon’s recent acquisition of IR Defense is an interesting development coming on the heels of FLIR purchasing Armasight last summer. We have field experience with night vision / thermal products from all of these companies and they are all amazing. To be able to spot a wild hog 200 yards away in total darkness is very cool.
Trijicon recently launched their new Trijicon Electro Optics website to promote the new line of IR Defense based thermal scopes. We should have two in for testing in the next couple of weeks. Can’t wait to take them hog hunting!
