I just posted in the optics section regarding generation one, two, and three night vision equipment and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with it. I also added a little more there about my problem so if you need more details check there. In short we've got a mountain lion that's taken 2 calves now in the last few weeks and I'm looking into night vision equipment. Don't know if I want a scope or binoculars. Any input appreciated regarding different brands as well as the optical quality difference between generation one, two, and three. If I go the scope route it will be put on either my AR-15 or my Remington 700 in 30-06. Right now the only hunting "technique" I've employeed is finding where it's covered it's meal and tried sitting off it waiting for it to come back for a snack but I can't be out 24/7 so it's gonna be a matter of luck getting the thing unless I bring in some friends that hunt with dogs. Rancher BTW- Please, no PETA replies as I've already contacted the proper authorities regarding my problem and have been give advise on how to deal with the matter.
