I havenít got to play with that one, but Iíve goy access to a Helion XP50 I use regularly for a scanner. Itís a dam good scanner. That new Pro should be even better.

I thought my buddy was given the new RICO 640, but it turned out to be the 42mm 384 version. That thing is dam impressive for a 384 unit. I’d say it was very close to my original Trail XP50 640 unit. It wasn’t quite the Trail 2 XP50, but it no doubt an excellent value.

Went out dove hunting yesterday evening, and didn’t have any intentions of hog hunting last night. Went to my cousins new lease he has with his dad, and while we were cleaning birds and BSing one of the spypoint cams sent a picture of a pretty nice boar. I didn’t have my rifles with me, but I had one of my LRF2s in my backseat, and my cousins dad had a new Sightmark Wraith he had set up on an AR. He’s bird hunted in the past some, but he’s never killed anything else. He just bought the Wraith in anticipation of this lease.

So off to the feeder we went on foot in the dark. I was leading the way, as I was using my LRF2 as a scanner while walking, and staying downwind of the feeder. Right as we got to the feeder the boar had sauntered off, but staying just in the brushline. He was weary I’m assuming of the new feed pin they had put up that day. The wind was highly in our favor, and it was dark as it gets so he hasn’t busted us. We’ll we sat up and waited him out, and almost gave up two different times before he’d make a brief appearance again. Finally 2.5 hours later he fully leaves the brush line and makes his was to the feeder. He’s a big boar. We’ll i instruct the shooter on what to do and where to place it, he makes a good shot, but not a great shot. He was hit hard and not in great shape. I carry a G48 and always have a quality pocket light on me. Not being my first rodeo we head back to camp and grab the ranger. We drive in close as possible before I jump out and head in after him. The brush is really thick, and it didn’t take me long to find him. He made it known where he was, and he wasn’t happy about it either. I just kept my 48 holstered, but untucked and easy access. Soon enough he made an appearance about 8-10 yds in front of me, and about that time he charged (not very well I may add). 2 135 +Ps dropped him, but didn’t finish him. Took 2 more behind the ear when I got up to him. He ended up scaling at 241 with some pretty nice cutters. His head is sitting in an antpile right now letting them do their thing. Hopefully in a few weeks we’ll have something to show for it.

Went calling on Friday night and ended up with 5 fox from 4 stands. I love nights like those when it is super easy.

Got my first DRT night kill tonight. Iím loving the Pulsar XM30. This is roughly a 130-40ish yard head shot.

Walked up to him and he only had 3 legs.

I canít figure out how to load the video I have.

Did you call that coyote in? If so what sounds were you using? Also I imagine the file size is too big on the video you have. If you want I can upload it to youtube for you and share it. PM me if you are interested.

I didn't use any call last night. I just set up on a hill over looking a pasture where everything crosses back and forth. I did call Friday night on my first night out and used the cottontail call. That called in 3 and to be honest, it happened so fast I wasn't ready. I went to take a shot and found that my mag wasn't seated all the way so the round did not chamber. All new set up so all the kinks are out now.

Pretty impressed with the iray Rico 640. Iíve handled just about every thermal scope and this checks off all the boxes for features, image quality and battery life. The iray app also works much much better than pulsars stream vision.

Yeah I got a Rico 384 and I love it. The app is pretty solid and they just updated the live feature.

For the price its hard to beat. Nothing on my reap lol but not far off picture wise

Pulsar app is awful. I have tried all the tricks on different phone settings and what not and i cant get it to work recently. Up till a year or so ago everything was perfect and then one day it just decided it wasnt going to work any more.

Edit: I dont use the app to stream or get videos off but it is the only way I know of to do updates. I know of at least 1 update I need to do but cant.

While I do think the pulsar app needs work for sure I havenít had any issues lately. Iíve got 2 LRF2s and an XG Thermion. Itís been working just fine on all 3.

I turn airplane mode on, and disconnect from the house WiFi. Then connect only to the pulsar, and in 2-3 minutes I can have any video on my phone.

Can download it in the field if I wanted to. Not that I do

I'll have to give this a try. I can't get the Pulsar app to work at all.

Just tried this and I have tried a dozen other ways that people say to do and it can never connect. Worked great for the first few months and then out of the blue on the same device it decided to stop working. I have even unistalled the app and reinstalled it but no luck. I find it strange that I cant download the update to my computer and then transfer the file to the scope.

One update I had constant issues with like youíre describing. I was eventually able to connect and update again though. I wonder if thatís the case. I prefer not to update now until Iíve heard some reviews and make sure people arenít having issues.

Ended up with one coyote last night. Was using a couple of rabbit in distress calls with no luck for about 15 mins, switched to a bird distress called nutty nuthatch when a fox came up right behind me and barked at me which scared the mess out of me. I turned around and fired a shot after he was behind some brush but missed. I think switched the call to grey fox in distress hoping to get him or another fox to come out when this coyote snuck up behind me since I was then pointed the direction of the fox.......... Shocking that I ended up with anything with all the moving I was having to do. I will upload a video later this week of the miss and hit.

I finally got my XP50 firmware updated. There is a stream vision 2 Beta app out there now that worked perfectly. I specifically had to do a search for stream vision 2 to get it to pop up. I deleted the other app and downloaded the 2 Beta version and all is good......... for now lol.

That is one of my favorite sounds out there for when the rabbits aren't doing the trick. And grey fox distress seems to work great as a coyote sound as well as fox sound.

I have had more luck with the grey fox distress and nutty nuthatch than anything including the rabbit sounds. I know that sounds crazy and folks are probably going to tell me that I am not doing the rabbit sequencing right (and they probably are right) but I have had the best luck with these two sounds.

Not sure if anyone is in the market for an IR laser. If so, then KosherSurplus.com has the Steiner CQBLs at $589. That’s cheaper than I bought my first one 7 years ago at dealer cost. I snagged another one yesterday in case I ever feel the need to shoot with my PVS.

Got a redemption hog last night after I totally botched it on a group of 15 missed them all! Then I walked up on a little group I never saw them got either 20 yards when they ran out of cover and grunted at me. Shot this one with a 6.5grendel probably 40 yards.

It's been a few days, but got two pigs with one shot(I wish on purpose) hung my sling on the second shot, got another pig with the third. Using a Deserttech MDRX in 308 with a ATN ThOR4 640 and a YHM resonator. Love this setup!

The resonator is the best you can buy IMHO.

I love the ThOR4, it's only froze up twice in six months and both times a quick reboot fixed it.

I know some folks will balk at this next comment, but my dad has two Halo LRs and two Trijicon Hunter mkiii's and only the Halo has an edge on the ThOR4, and it's most noticable when humidity is really high. Otherwise, I'm going to say there's only about a 5-8% difference in image quality.

So whatís the best thermal for this year?

Iíve been wanting the Thermion because it looks more like a rifle scope but want to make sure Iím not missing out on much better performance.

I'd recommend going to Cabela's or Ultimate night vision in fort worth and looking through them yourself. This stuff can be so subjective for the end user. Plus you always have fanboys pushing their favorite. I prefer my ThOR4 but my dad prefers his HaloLR. Just my 2Ę

Holler at Jason at Outdoor Legacy. He is a great guy and will get you set up right. Budget and average shot distance to determine what base magnification you need is a good start.

the one I got for sale is pretty awesome if you want a smoking deal on a used one. I agree with giving Jason a call if shopping for new stuff.... dude knows thermal.

Had a couple of successful hunts from week before last. Ended up with two coyotes. I missed the fox but I thought I included it in the footage because if you listen close enough he was behind me barking at me at about 10-15 yards. Scared the mess out of me. Screaming grey fox brought the two coyotes in.

I’ve been wanting the Thermion because it looks more like a rifle scope but want to make sure I’m not missing out on much better performance.

I’d look at Iray Rico 640 (iray currently has a special and you get the laser range finder for free) . I’ve had a Nvision halo lr and pulsar thermion XG50.. Currently have a iray 640 and like it the best. Hit up Jason @outdoorlegacy. He’s the man
