Armasight makes some of the best thermal rifle scopes available. These are high-end units – professional grade. The Armasight Zeus Pro is simply a superior solution for hog hunting.
I have taken the Armasight Zeus Pro hog hunting at night but did not have the DVR available to record the video. As you know, deer hunting past twilight is a criminal offense. The video taken here is intended to demonstrate the capabilities of the thermal scope – we were not deer hunting at night!
Thermal is different from traditional night vision devices in that the subjects really jump out at you. On one occasion, we had both a Gen 3 NVD and a thermal out one night hog hunting. We had spread corn down a long road, parked up on a rise, and were waiting on the pigs to arrive. Scanning down the road with the NVD, I didn’t notice anything moving. I then picked up the thermal and wow – a doe was standing about 60 yards away! Because she wasn’t moving I did not notice her with NVD. However, with the thermal she just popped!
