I wished I could afford one of those FLIR thermal scopes but holy crap those things are expensive.
And this little Scout TK wasn't exactly cheap either. And TBH, this particular scope has some bugs in it
I wasn't able to download all the videos I had stored on it because it kept corrupting the files. So I lost about 80%
Of the videos I took. At this moment, FLIR is replacing the unit that I have been using with a new one. But it's been
a headache trying to get their CS Dept to respond to my messages. But once I established a contact, they have been
very responsive. It's just taken all week and at least five 30 minute+ sessions on the phone. But those conversations
were very positive.

Hopefully the replacement will be rock solid.

Plz keep us posted, I love watching the hog related vids.

Also wanted to offer up this video for informational purposes.

Explains the whole alpha sow habits, and why it's important to take her out first. Of course all this works better with suppressers. Hopefully HPA passes.

Here's one of my favorite peeps to watch hog hunting, Franz Albrecht. If memory serves, he's employed by aimpoint.

Shooting at running targets and hitting this consistently takes strategy and much practice.

Here's an explanation of that strategy, and how it helps by eliminating two variables.

For those that find that method not sporty enough, you can always buy some monkeys, and put 'em to work. :lol:
