Night Vision Hunting

Absolutely clear that any hunter always wanted to see the purpose in a variety of conditions, regardless of light, natural, weather conditions and other atmospheric factors. Modern technologies allow to do it. So, here is some general information about night vision devices (NVD). Night vision device can be divided on the basis of their actions: – Passive night vision devices. Converts the reflected light from objects outside sources. Operate in the visible and near infrared (IR). You may find that Amazon can contribute to your knowledge. – Active night vision devices. Use special lighting objects using infrared diodes or lasers.

Work in the near infrared range. – Thermal Imagers. Work in the far infrared spectrum and use the principle of converting the image of heat radiation targets and surrounding objects. Practical interest for the consumer-hunter represent primarily all ir devices, since the cost of thermal imaging has been relatively high. As for ir devices, the best results show, of course, active night vision devices. Only that: the active radiation can be detected by instruments and the position of the arrow unmask. This prevents their use in armed forces, but the hunters, this fact does not interfere. Night vision device consists of the following elements: optics, electron-optical converter (EOC), power supply, as well as housing and eyepiece.

The light reflected from an object passing through the lens, projected onto the image intensifier entrance, where an electronically magnified and transmitted to the eyepiece. It is clear that the quality of consumer night vision device is directly dependent on the quality of the above elements of devices. What helps to make an accurate shot? The shot, which is the logical conclusion of any hunting. Of course, training, experience, and keen eyesight But the possibilities of the human eye is the limit, and the arrow came to the aid of technology – there scopes. The sight is to clearly and accurately distinguish target determine the distance to it (if rangefinder scale) and bring arms to the desired point. Were created by the compact size and weight, night-vision sights for firearms. But they have long remained inaccessible hunters because of legal restrictions and high cost. In 1993 he published a Federal Law "On Weapons', in article 6 which states that the Russian Federation prohibits" installation on civilian and service weapons sights (sighting complexes), Night Vision, with the exception of sights for hunting, the use of which is established by the Government of the Russian Federation, as well as selling them. " Indeed, it was allowed to use night sights vision for hunting purposes. But, to follow the law, you need to know what kind of sight is a sight for hunting. Design differences between hunting rifle scopes from the military that often they are equipped with infrared illuminators that is not permissible for military targeting. It is worth noting that almost every night-sight can be used as a simple observational night vision device, as well as for photography and video. In any case, the decision to purchase and / or using night vision sights for hunting, each hunter takes for himself, the main thing – do not use it in places where hunting with a night-sight is prohibited. In prohibited areas is advisable to use night-vision observation devices, and hit the target, for example, with the fast day optical sight.
