What's the max distance you can really see with those scopes? That seemed like it did the trick without any issue.

Great video.

I like to hunt close at night. I depend on my ears more than anything. A big boar will usually give himself away coming in but you have to know what your listening for. They will kick a rock rub some brush or flap their ears. I can see well past 100 yards with that scope but like I said I like to set up close so that I can hear them coming. I dont set up to close because a smart boar will circle the feeder to wind check. I give them enough room to do this but I still want to hear them so being back to far will create problems imho. This setup works perfect for the way I hunt over bait.

Great scope for the money. I have had it several years and I will say that I am hard on gear! It has shot numerous pigs for several of my friends and family. I have rode with it on the 4 wheeler in very rough terrain with zero issues. Hell, I even ran over the gun with my truck lol. Still going strong!!!

It was laying on the ground beside him. Pretty crazy that it went all the way through and stopped enough to be laying on the ground. Great little 30cal bullets for hogs out of that 300BO!

I got two of those same scopes and have shot a lot of pigs using them. Like already stated they can’t be beat for the money. I run an external IR that can be zoomed in and out and 200 yards is no problem seeing and shooting pigs. The built in IR will do 100 yards. I’m glad you posted the dvr model I will have to check it out.

So you can kill pigs at 100 with no added lights?
