I have the Ranger and you will struggle to use it for foxing. If you would like to look thru it before you go and spent you cash then feel free to PM me.. I'm bassed in Nottinghamshire.

EDIT:

If you check my Youtube channel link below i have footage of the Ranger in action at no more than 20 yards

Well i use a ranger at a hell of alot more yards than that and i only use it for foxes.I think you need to set it up properly or you must have a faulty unit.

Feel free to tell me whats wrong with the footage on my channel? It was taken in a corn shelter at no more than 20y as stated. I'm fully aware of how to use the unit and get the best out of it..

I regulary use it for scanning fields and struggle at distance. Its ok for paddocks and smaller fields and thats about your lot.. Rabbits look like mice at 60/80 yard..

I've got to agree, yours must surely be faulty.

Standard ranger with N1000 will get you out to 200 yards no problem.

But can you clearly tell what your looking at? All you can see at that range is eye shine...

lol....

Far from a duff unit.. Its perfectly fine... I've looked through a mates Ranger and the Ranger Pro,, all was the same...

Theres a reason you use a PVS14 with a 3x lens and thats cos the Ranger aint got the balls haa

Very odd that :hmm: . If it's not a duff unit and the ranger pro's the same................... Maybe you should've gone to specsavers!
Seriously though, I use a ranger pro, but I've looked through the standard ranger and it was fine for identifying a Fox to about 200 yards.

The only difference in the pro is the IR.. In my eyes the yukon is crap for foxing...
