Default night vision scopes anyone

am looking to get a monocular before yote season this year
they are expensive but i am impressed with the 2nd gen type scopes
they look good enough for hunting and cost much less

anyone have any input on night vision for hunting or photography purposes

How about... save the bucks and just use a scope with good light gathering and a heavier duplex?

I use to head shoot cottontails with my dad's ancient 22 savage mounted with a 2 power weaver. Won't work in canopy forest, but will in fields.

I'd agree . My night vision was a waste of money . They are cool , and your friends will be impressed . But I havn't really come across a situation that it was NEEDED. An illuminated reticle in a low power scope will be good for most of your night hunting . As a hobbyist shutterbug ,,, I've never tried anything like that . Good luck .
