    Thermal NV has transformed my shooting. Remember thermal can also be used during the day for spotting, as it works on thermal differences. Brilliant on a cold day out on a hillside.

    xq50 thermal scope

    This is from a friends Trail XQ last night. Red Deer in amongst trees just as it was getting dark. Couldnt see them with a Schmidt & bender scope. Sorry about the shakes, wasn't leaning on anything. https://youtu.be/em1OpRluSTQ
  7. Excellent advice! Many thanks.
  8. Sorry, but "I've been poaching all my life ..... And ... I'm you're worst nightmare" doesn't help your, or anyone elses case. In fact it's a decision maker for me I'm afraid. The landowner wants it disposed of as no permission has been given or requested. He also doesn't want to set a president by ignoring it. Suits me as I don't want folk tramping about the shoot , which I pay a load of cash for, when I'm shooting. I'll take it down & leave a note & see who claims it. If it's legit, no doubt someone will email me, if it's poaching, then it's gone for good. Landowner wanted it trashed, but I'm a bit more reasonable. Anyway, back to my OP regarding the law..... Anyone?
  9. I've tried a few balistic calculators, but never found them very accurate. eg; my new 308 according to well known calculators, using a 180g bullet, would drop around 3" @ 200 Yds, whereas in reality, it drops just 1 1/4".
  10. Think my point is, I pay a lot of money for stalking in this private wood, (it's not FC), & the last thing I want is folk wandering over it to install cameras when I'm out stalking. Not only is it dangerous, it's downright ignorant to assume you can set up a camera in private property. Imagine it was your garden.... Anyway, back to my original question regarding the law on this.....
  11. So I was out this morning in a forestry stalking for Roe (buck), it's literally miles away from civilisation. Right in the heart of the wood, I came upon a Trail cam (not mine!) in a ride I'd cut last year. I opened it up and had a look and there was a few pics on it. No one else shoots in this area. I was tempted to take it down, but unsure of the law on this, does anyone have any idea what the legal implications are? Was thinking of calling BASC later this week and see if they could advise. Any advice would be great.

    Continuing the theme, is there any covers for Pulsar units? I can't see any when I google it?

    Ian, for my benefit (I'm still looking at these), how much better is the eye relief on the QD mount? I looked through a keeper friends XQ, but felt the standard mount could have been back another couple of inches.

    I don't have one, but by all accounts while it's a cracking scope, it's a bit short on eye relief. I'd research it or ask Ian, as you may end up needing an extended Picatinny rail.
