    Night vision

    To be fair mate it is more than I need but It’s only that I got spoilt looking through the xp50 that I went for the 38 as not much difference and I never knew what the other ones were like so didn’t want to waste money, rather buy once knowing it will do the job. Got some info on it and recommended by a few and it’s served me well last few seasons. It’s been through the wars aswel had plenty of use and was going to sell it and get one of them little new ones bunnyboiler put up but it’s just waistung money I’ll hopefully get another good few seasons out of this one atlest.

    Think the detection range on the 38 is about 12_1300 metres and about 1800 on the 50. You wouldn’t tell what it is from that far and I’m sure that’s based on a human size object but I’d say from 800 -1000 meters you can tell what sort of size it is big or small . Like I say I’ve got the 38 and bunnyboiler got a 50. His is a clearer picture but not a lot and I’ve got an extra 1500 pound in my pocket but he’s all posh and got the new laser range ones £5200 but he only uses them to look out his window

    For that little extra I’d go for the 38 mate. You can’t go wrong and deffo won’t have the feeling of should I have brought the other one. That’s if it’s in your budget

    I’ve looked through one that was about a grand but in all honesty it wasn’t the best quality. Not sure what model it was. Yes suppose it’s another thing they could take but suppose you’d have to be caught in the act somewhere your not supposed to be as if I was travelling in car or doing nowt wrong I wouldn’t be letting them take it. It’s not illegal to buy, so not illegal to carry. Just something that keeps you a little more discreet but as said not a deffinate cert you couldn’t get a tug

    Think I paid 1900 for mine from game fair year before last mate. I know it’s a lot of money but keeps you safe that was my main objective

    Night vision

    Just been out for couple of hours as it got dark local as ground still rock hard and no wind an a full moon but thought I’d take the thermal to have a mooch while we cross the parks and golf courses. Spotted about 5 foxes 1 munty and and a few bunnies in 2 hours. Too light and still to get anywhere near the rabbits but let’s you know what’s really about even if it’s from a couple of fields away as the distance is great on them aswel

    I use a thermal mate. Xq38f. Great bit of kit to be honest . Can walk for hours and only put the lamp on handful of times when your dogs running.Good for lampshy places and if your somewhere your not supposed to be which is handy for me . Mates got an xp 50 which is good aswel. Probably a bit better picture on the xp50 but the xq38f more than good enough for what I imagine you’ll need

    Season Starts At Midnight

    Went out myself. Was out four hours all in all but that was a lot of waiting around looking through the thermal hoping things would come towards me as like you say the weather wasn’t on side. Last few seasons I wasted a lot of nights going out when I didn’t stand much chance but I’ve also had some suprisingly decent nights when like it. Suppose you got to be in it to win it but I’ll do more daytime this season when I know the weather not good for lamping

    Pre Season

    Just a bit of veg but there fussy with a lot of it when raw so Most of the time I know it’s not as good but just bags of frozen as once it’s been cooked they eat it no problem so better than not at all. Plenty of tripe aswe. Will give them atlest a little tripe every day

    Pre Season

    Mine get a mixture of lamb,beef, chicken and tripe. Get a tray of chicken bones with plenty of meat and skin on each time aswel. Bit of fish here and there mainly pilchards or mackrel. Like to give them plenty of lamb for the fat content. They seem to do ok on it. Very rarely give kibble but if I do as we’re somewhere I can’t keep the meat froze I’ll give them wainwright’s.

    coastal mooch

    Ha ha. It’s always someone else’s fault. Nice to know he thought that and find out the truth. Haven’t met many farmers but I do ok for permission as I’m always on different spots . Atb for the season Igz

    Pre Season

    Road walking, free running in grass fields but still takes a month or so of work once the season strarts to get running fit.They haven’t done much lying on there beds this summer as wanted the pup out and about so out every day sometimes twice for a walk early morning or late evening and there just getting into shape now. Couldn’t be happier with the pup so far but it’s early doors

    coastal mooch

    I was polite in how I went about things and he’d just seen me come from where I did so knows I was only off the path 2 minutes. He had cows in next field and seen the dogs never took a second look but straight away he was on the defensive. He could have got himself any moles cleared up free of charge if he’d have been a bit more polite but knew from his first reaction there wasn’t much chance . I do my best to respect where I walk though and I don’t see no harm in walking the dogs where I feel fit.

    coastal mooch

    Went for a walk not to far from me this afternoon for an hour as I knew there wasn’t going to be much wind for a mooch tonight. As I was walking down the field and saw the farmer cutting his hedges on his tractor, so I thought I’ll pass down by him see what sort of mood he’s in and maybe ask him for a bit of permission. walked off the public footpath onto the field he’s on and I’m along the bottom edge as he’s coming down thinking I’ll meet on the corner. So as he’s 10 yards from the bottom he sent a fox out from where he was cutting the other side of hedge, dogs seen it when it passed along the opening between the two fields and off they went farmer looking at me and I put my hand over my head as if to say oh f**k but sorry. When I looked up and realised he hadn’t noticed the fox come out, he just must have thought dogs was f***ing around. His first words were your trespassing, I said I know I was just on the footpath but I’m getting back on now just wanted to ask you if you had any ferrrting he said no they all been killed by the virus. Could tell he was a funny f****r so I just let him be as he went into the next field and he nocked a rabbit out . Wanted to say thought there was no bunnies but I just carried on walking smiling to myself as I’ve been going on there for last 3 seasons anyway.
