    Yep! We all saw what happened on "Yellowstone" when they unknowingly shot radio-collared wolves with thermals on the Dutton ranch.

    I'm not bragging . . . just stating for what I know . . . if you can ID one from the other during the day . . . with good thermal vision . . . night should be no problem.

    You see really good shades of green in mine (just could not do one of the rainbow scopes . . . ) and they should be plenty plain enough out to at least 200 yds and maybe even 300 when you go for the zoom in feature . . .

    I got it for coyote hunting and while it's a long story . . . just haven't been able to get loose to go much.

    Secondarily . . . it is for home protection. I do not have outside lights except for my flagpole . . . so if someone comes sneaking around . . . I can pick him up and he'll never know I've got a track on him. With the quick mount system I have on it . . . I can slip it on my AR pistol in all of about 3 minutes . . . be out the door . . . and bad guy hunting. Don't want to . . . but the world is what the world is.

    May God bless,
