Hunting hogs. Invited to some property in Trinity County by friend in a client. Unfortunately, there was no wind and the moon didn't come up until 4 in the morning. The Hogs did not move. In fact nothing was moving for 5 hours



Two Hodge Defense AU Mod 1s with Surefire socom556 cans & Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover. 

The thermal is an IR Defense Snipe IR clip on from @third_coast_thermal.

The colt Lights Microtac M-sceptre will be installed for tonight's fun and games.








#diepiggydie  Hodge Defense AU mod 1, IR Hunter Snipe IR, Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover on the Socom556sb.  Team Wendy exfil w/ a TNVC pvs-14 on a Wilcox mount.
The IR snipe-ir is a loner from @third_coast_thermal


This is the snipe IR in front of the Leupold day optic. Once you get used to the position it's not hard to Upright the snipe IR. The one caveat to that is it's been hard for me to reach forward while looking through the day optic to see where I am out of the menu without the rifle mounted on a shooting sticks or some other object.





The camel backpack on the ground with the team Wendy exfil helmet and the tmvc pvs-14 and Wilcox mount. The Deep Woods Off was equally Mission essential as batteries. The mosquitoes were out in force.


Waiting on the hogs in thermal.


This photo shows the DVR setup that allows recording from the snipe IR


Hog hunting with no hogs.   I am running the IR defense snipe IR clip on thermal weapon sight in front of a Leupold mark 8 1 to 8 cqbss.


#diepiggydie. No hogs for me in Trinity County, but my friend in Montgomery county used his day old,  new Pulsar APEX from @third_coast_thermal to take This hog.   This is on a 10.5" 5.56 SBR and a YHM QD Phantom.   Neck shot. Ran 20 yds and stopped. Used  hornady soft point. Sounded like someone hit a mattress with a cain pole each it time

11



Fisher fire 2011, the wristwatch flashlight. This is another piece of gear that I consider to be essential. It's one of those items that when I first got it I kind of scratched my head and wondered how useful it would be. Over the last few years I don't go on a hunt without it




Hello I've had the snipe IR for a couple of months, I've not been able to use it in the field until tonight. The image is good. As I've learned to work through the menus and change the settings, I found this to be a very usable clip-on. I am able to get good resolution up to 6 power with the Leupold Mark 8
