Check out this video of the hot water jug being shot with a 6.8 SPC and recorded from the TUSKIR384 thermal weapon sight from NITEHOG.
I had a friend inform me about a website he found that has night vision and thermal. www.nvgstore.com I haven’t gotten anything from them yet, but they have a plethora of different devises and accessories to choose from concerning night vision and thermal devices.
If you get something or if I do I’ll repost and tell the experience and quality of whatever was purchased.
So the Tactical Hog Control outfit has made the front page of the WSJ. Hunting hogs in Texas using thermal weapon scopes. The NITEHOG TUSKIR384 is the thermal sight being used on a DPMS .308 caliber rifle. Read the article and then watch the video and let me know what comments you have. You’ll also get a kick out of some of the comments on the article from the liberal population that has probably never encountered a feral hog.
What is it that you are using to hunt varmints with? CNVD, CNVD-LR, X50 handheld or a mounted thermal weapon scope or something else? I’d love to hear your input…
Personally I have found that NITEHOG has all of my needs. I have gotten a PVS-14 NVG from them and my latest purchase is a TUSKIR384. It is an amazing thermal weapon sight. Resolution is 384×288 and has up to 12 x digital magnification. I used the x50 Themal Eye for a month or so to see if thermal was for me. And nothing compares to it. Especially after trying the Scorpion and the FLIR thermal sights. The resolution of the TUSKIR384 is incredible.
Other great products to use depending on your budget is the Aquilla 6x PVS-12, the CNVD-LR which is a clip on to your existing day optic and the PVS 14 for scouting and in conjunction with the x50 those 2 work out great to locate the prey before you pull your rifle up for the shot.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
We went down to Madisonville, Texas and hunted with Tactical Hog Control. We were stalking a group of hog and were using the NITEHOG TUSKIR384 thermal weapon sight on the supressed .308. I have a link to the video that was taken… Great time and look forward to doing it again.

Thermal imaging – This technology operates by capturing the upper portion of the infrared light spectrum, which is emitted as the heat from objects instead of simply reflected as light, as in night vision devices. Hotter objects, such as varmints, cars and humans, emit more of this light than cooler objects like trees or buildings. Most systems can use either “white hot or black hot”. One is able to acquire the “target” easier than with typical night vision. Once you hunt with THERMAL you will never want to use night vision devices again.
