It looks like the worst qualities of thermal and night vision combined. I'm guessing the Feds spent $20 billion on this project.

What do you know about the Fusion Avenger 35?

Looks to be a similar scope quality/price wise to the Iray

Got a feeder maybe 100 yards from my cabin and get a pig every now and then. Got him with my hogster 35 but the cell cam captured the shot.

Earlier this week we stalked a decent sounder of pigs out in a wheat field, intercepted them before they could get to the peanuts that had just been planted. It was 3 sows and a whole bunch of 40-50 lb juveniles. We killed all 3 sows and a slew of little ones. We only recovered/removed 6 pigs from the field that night because the wheat was so tall but knew there were more out there.

We went back out last night to make sure there weren't any more pigs coming to the peanuts. We didn't find any pigs but there were several coyotes out in the wheat eating the dead pigs we did not find and remove from the field the night we shot them.

We stalked up on one of those coyotes and did a countdown double shot on it. It was a pretty big female and she had her head down eating. I had to lip squeak her a couple times to get her to raise her head so we could shoot. After we shot her when we walked down to look at her we could smell the "stink trail" of at least two more pigs from earlier in the week we did not find. Pretty sure the total from that night was 9-10 out of that one sounder.

Short video but I thought it was cool. https://youtu.be/N3gAJyykXQc

Put a couple more down last night. Cloud cover and moon phase made it DARK DARK but the unfilmed White Phosphor cut through it pretty well still.

Tonight was our first night out on the wheat in a while. We were hoping it was hot and heavy already, but things are still a bit slow. I hunted til 430, and we were at 22 when I left. Only killed on 3 fields at that point, with the first two fields producing 10 each, and the 3rd producing two big boars. Hopefully it’ll pick up soon. Typically by that point we’ve already killed on 5-6 fields, and we won’t even consider wasting the time for a solo boar or two.

Far from our best showing, but a buddy had one of his helpers drag and stack them for us after we killed them.

The only video I remembered to record! I was the far left shooter, so I didn’t swing right when they ran to the right. A handful more were downed on the right.

It was definitely a good time. A little slower than weíre used to this time of year, but that made it easier to enjoy and joke around. We get pretty serious when theyíre hitting the wheat hard.

That is a good nights work. For sure they are in the wheat over here. Crossing over into the peanuts too, we are hunting both types of crops. Luckily not getting too much peanut damage so far this year on my son and BIL's places. They rotated fields around and we hit them hard leading up to planting season. Damage on peanuts has not been anything like it was last year. Yet.

I have been guilty of not only forgetting to hit the record button but also forgetting to stop the recording before I turn the scope off. I know if you didnt stop the recording on my Flir you lost the file but I am not sure on the Pulsar.

I have just started hitting the record button as soon as I turn the scope on. If you do a good job of transfering/erasing the files off the scope then you will never fill up the hard drive on the scope in one night.

The first sounder we got on I really screwed up. I remembered to hit ďrecordĒ lol it was my zoom right as we were getting ready to shoot. I was scrambling to get back to native 3x as we were 60yds out, and 6x was way too much. I was lucky to get back on 3x right as the countdown ended, and didnít manage to hit record before we started shooting. On the video in question I remembered to kill the record too early haha after the shooting had ceased for 30 seconds or so I killed it, then a lone survivor popped up on a fence line 305 yds out. I flopped him on the spot. 2 very credible witnesses, but no video lol

I donít have access to any peanuts myself, but one the guys I hunt with has quite a bit. Heís tried to get me out a few times lately, but my schedule hasnít allowed it to happen. I donít think my wife wants me extending my killing season any longer than it already is either I pretty much live in the doghouse this time of year haha

Pulsar XG50 on this scenario. I’ve had a few different XPs over the years, as well as had access to a few shop demo units. This weekend we had a NOX 18, NOX 35 Trijicon MK3 60, 3x REAP 35, and a handful of dual tube white phosphor binos.

I sent my Reap IR in last week as it kept shutting off from the recoil during shooting!

It is out of warranty, but Trijicon has been great to me. Let's see how they handle it and what is wrong

Not sure the tripod on the left. The tripod on the right is a Fiesol 3372 with RRS BH-55 head. I’m running a Leofoto LN-364C with LH-40 head myself.

Personally I won’t run anything with a center column. The guy with the Feisol feels the same. They’re nowhere near as stable although they can be stable enough for most uses. Also I greatly prefer a ball head with arca mount. They’re not as easily swap able to different rifles, but the lockup is fantastic. That BH-55 head is as solid as they come, and makes long shots chip work.

A few years ago my cousin lost his entire peanut allotment in one night. Hogs came across Red River from OK and wiped out all 16 acres of sprouts in a single night. Biggest mess you ever saw. He got some revenge with 12 ga 00 buckshot but not nearly enough. Said there were more than one sounder of 40+ pigs. They had trouble for years in their soybeans too. Hog doggers finally chased them back across the river to OK.

Itís definitely had some ďfield repairsĒ 😂 Thatís not a knock on the tripod. It took a 289 lb boar at full speed. Itís never been the same since, but listening to those little girl screams out of a full grown man made it worth it

Can we get Paul Harvey in here to give us the rest of the story?

We were hunting in tall wheat a couple years ago. Already had a pretty solid night, but had a new guy with us and I lent him my rifle. I stayed back at the truck, and stood on the toolbox so I could get footage (or try anyways) over the wheat. 4 BIG pigs in this sounder. The shooting started when the pigs are on the edge of the wheat, but the two shooters were still in the wheat. Naturally the pigs ran to cover, which was the wheat. This boar had no intentions of charging, as he was just as surprised what he ran into as my buddy was. A full speed hit to the tripod, but luckily the tripod deflected him off my buddy. The other shooter managed to turn and hit the boar several times as he deflected directly behind him. That boar was the second largest pig in the group. Had another sow go over 300, and a couple sows over 260. Unfortunately all I could see were the tops of hogs backs every now and then, and then the shooters. I got to hear the little girl screams though

Has anyone dealt with Bering Optics CS? Thinking about buying a Super Hogster for my first thermal.
