There’s nothing quite like the thrill of the hunt… except maybe when you do it at night. Night hunting adds a whole new level of excitement (not to mention intrigue) to your average hunting trip. But if you’ve never done it before, the prospect of using night vision goggles (NVG) can be a little daunting. Not to worry – we’re here to help you get started. Here are a few tips on how to have fun using NVGs while outdoors.
Familiarize Yourself with Your Goggles
Before you go out and use your NVGs for the first time, it’s important that you take some time to familiarize yourself with them. Read the instruction manual from cover to cover so that you know how they work and what all the different settings do. It might also be helpful to practice using them indoors so that you can get a feel for how they work before you go outside in the dark.
Be Prepared for Anything
Night hunting is unpredictable, so it’s important that you come prepared for anything. In addition to yourNVGs, make sure to bring along a flashlight, a knife, a first-aid kit, and plenty of food and water. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so err on the side of caution when packing your supplies.
Know Your Target
One of the most important things to keep in mind when night hunting is that not all animals will show up in your NVGs the same way. Smaller animals like rabbits will show up as small green blobs, while larger animals like deer will appear as big green blobs. If you’re not sure what you’re looking at, take a second to look through your binoculars or scope so that you can identify your target before taking the shot.
Night hunting is a great way to add an extra level of excitement to your next hunting trip. Just remember to familiarize yourself with your NVGs before heading out, bring along plenty of supplies, and know your target before taking the shot. With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to have a fun and successful night hunt.
