Night vision binoculars can be used for many purposes. They’re excellent for hunting, shooting, or night surveillance. But, there are a few things you need to keep in mind as not to damage your night vision binoculars. First, don’t use your device in the day unless it’s specifically intended to be used during the day and night. This can damage your optics prematurely and it’s recommended to cover your gear with a daylight cover, which are often included in the package. I would also advice you to never take your gear apart.
I often use my night vision binoculars when I am rifle hunting that’s also paired with a spotting scope! Night vision devices are extremely important equipment for hunting. Night vision technology lets you see your target clearly and work with it in a humane manner. You can also choose to mount your binocular on a tripod for added stability, you can check out all of my recommendation for the best tripods here.
One of the most important firearms rules whether it’s day or night, is knowing your target and what lies beyond it. If you can’t identify your target you are not following this rule and shouldn’t shoot. If you’re new to hunting, it’s very important to read up on firearms safety before you go out into the field.
Check out this firearm safety guide which has 10 rules of safe gun handling by the Firearms Safety Industry Trade Association. You also want to make sure that night hunting is legal in your state so I recommend checking out this guide that lists the phone numbers and websites to the state’s night hunting laws and regulations. So, make sure you’re obeying the state and federal laws, as to not get in any trouble!
Just to recap, if you’re short on time and need my top 3 recommendations. here they are! I recommend the Night Owl NOXB-5 Explorer 5X for it’s sturdiness and extreme clear optics, the Sightmark Ghost Hunter 2×24 Night Vision Binoculars because it has powerful IR illuminator and they are priced at a great price range, and my last top recommendation is the Solomark Digital Night Vision Binocular since it has awesome magnification features and the multi-coated lenses that create clear images.
