Default Night Vision Scopes and Setups

Hi hunters! Just wondering what are your favorite night vision scopes and setups for night time hunting. Do you prefer a dedicated scope, a clip-on scope, or laser with a night vision monocular?

As always, happy hunting!!!

i have a dedicated rifle set-up just for a night vision scope. Am currently running a ATN 5x Gen 1+ with a Streamlight Super Tac IR light. Easily seeing and shooting hogs and coyotes out over 200 yds.

Armasight Vampire 3X is Gen 1 night vision riflescope. It uses core technology which the resolution of a Gen 3 scope. It is not much brighter as Gen 3, but still a better option.

Default Hog Light for Night

I setup a hog light on my feeder and it works great. This is where you can get it for like $20 bucks.

I Hunt coyotes at night, true night vision IR scopes are illegal here in PA< so, I stick with a colored gun mounted light, I have a wildlife extremes KILL LIGHT XL 250, can see and shoot out to about 200+ yrds with it, and it can be on one gun and on another pretty fast due to a quick mount set up
cost me about 150 bucks I think, and been using it for about 3+ yrs now, very happy with it I also have a second light I use for scanning, as too much movement to move rifle mounted set up all the time, plus I don;t like scanning with a rifle, as never know what might walk out ??
