Got this 300 plus pound Texas hog using the High Tech Red Neck Signature
Series PVS 14 at 75 yards with an single shot to the head. I cannot believe the
clarity of these tubes even when looking through a rifle scope. This hog was shot
with my Ruger American Rifle in .243 Winchester with a Redfield Revolution rifle
scope. We got other hogs on the trip to but this one was by far the largest.
Its easy to tell apart hogs, skunks, deer, cows and other animals with the Gen 3,
something I couldn't do past 50 yards with my old Gen 1 monocular. Thanks again
for selling such a quality product and standing behind it.

Hi Kevin had to share this with you. This is the first year using the MX-160 and
am loving it. I went out two nights ago by myself. Mating season is just getting
started. When I started calling it wasn't 5 minutes and I saw the first coyote
heading across the field to me. There was about 4 inches of snow on the ground
and the MX-160 made it almost too easy to spot him coming to me. After I shot
that yote, I kept calling. It wasn't just a few more minutes and I spotted the other
one on a dead run coming from behind me. I felt if I was just using a normal red
light to spot, I would of never had a chance at this one. As you can see the MX-160 did it's job.

As you know the three of us pictured
here have all purchased your products. I was contacted by the owner of a
Quality Whitetail Management Area, who was concerned about the number of coyotes
he and his guests had been seeing. Further, a neighboring cattle farm too was
having predation problems as well. It certainly appeared so after the
interviews and recon of the farms......their concerns were well
founded. I put a plan together that would
rely on some very talented shooters that could see in the dark. Saturday night
was just perfect weather conditions for us. The number of animals that had taken
up residence here was staggering. The three of us were able to shoot
15 coyotes in one night. Significant numbers in this part of the country to say
the least. At least 3 males topped the scales at over 40 lbs. along with some very mature females. We would not have been able to
accomplish this task, or help these people, without your products. As usual, the
units performed flawlessly. Just wanted to say thanks, I'm sure there will be a
bunch of fawns and calves grateful to you as well.

Thanks again for the early Christmas
I received my new MX-160 on the
24th and love it.
I took it out last
night and first set called and took a big male coyote and the second, called
and took a gray fox third was a dud but I won't fault the NV for that.
Thanks again Kevin for all your help and the

quite a few close encounters and a lot of messed up stands, my dad and I finally
got one in front of us for a shot. Thanks Kevin for sending out my Armasight Vampire starter pack so quickly. After I got my
set-ups adjusted a little different for night calling, my dad and I got
this female to come in and investigate. She got a free ride in the pick-up!
The first night that I got to use my new High Tech Red
Neck Signature Series Scope platformed on the MX-160 started a little
slow. First of all, I had to wait a week
because of the poor weather. That was
brutal, but I made it out on Friday Jan 22nd. We got to the first stand and I realized I
had forgotten my chair. Good way to
start out! The first two stands were dry
runs and then on the third stand we had a shy coyote skirt around us. We got to see him twice, but could not get a
shot. I had been sitting on the ground
all of these sets. I believe had I been
standing, I could have gotten a shot off at that coyote. I remembered Kevin had told me on the night
that I made my purchase that he stands or kneels when calling at night. So on the fourth set I tried standing. We had coyotes talking to us, but we figured
where they were howling at, they either saw or smelled the truck. To our surprise at about sixteen minutes a
lone coyote ran out into the field at approximately 150 yards. Since I was standing this time, I had no
problem turning on him to line up the shot.
The Jack Rabbit system worked flawlessly, I hooked up my MX-160 and the
coyote just stood there. One shot from
my 22-250 and my first night out was a success.
We had a little snow conver and I did not even have to turn on my
IR. I could see him perfectly at 4X on
my day scope. All I have to say is,
Thank You Kevin! Night hunting just

I just had my best calling night so far. I made
three sets last night and called in a pair at each one and ended up with these
5 coyotes. At my second set, I rushed my shot at the male after I took
out his girlfriend otherwise there would have been 6 in the picture. We
do have a trace of snow on the ground and I might have been able to see without
my MX-160 but there's no way I could have seen them as far out as I did or the
last pair that came through a 12" high alfalfa field.

After struggling for a couple months with hunting coyotes at
night I decided to take my limited budget and invest for some NV. Thanks to
your videos and help per emails, I ordered my first NV scope (Armasight Vampire). The second time out I was able to connect with my biggest coyote to
date, a 40 lb male at 140 yds on a moonless warm North Carolina night. Your products and customer service are top notch and I
appreciate what you do for the hunting community.

Just wanted to let you know I am having great success
with the Armasight Nemesis Quicksilver Gen 2+ scope and the T-20 850nm Illuminator I purchased from you. This
particular hunt was interesting as I had just taken a coyote down in the bottom
of a pasture near a stand of timber. I
decided to walk to the top of the hill and called out on some flat farmland
that contained irrigation ditches. After
several howls and some scanning, I picked up eyes and made a positive ID on an
incoming coyote. I took the shot and
anchored this male at 150 paces! I
appreciate you taking the time through email and on the phone to help me with
my first night vision setup, and look forward to many more successful hunts in
the future! Thanks for all the help!

My son and I have been trying to get
his first coyote at night while home on break from the Univ. of Iowa. A
previous outing had called one in and he couldn't find it in the scope soon
enough. He didn't turn on the IR torch, and with no snow and minimal ambient light it can be difficult at times, especially if you're not used to
going from the thermal to the NV scope (D740 purchased from HTRN). Well,
lightening struck twice. Same thing next time out. Called one in at about 15
minutes and he picked it up on his scanner; alerted me, and transitioned from
the thermal to the scope while I kept watching on my thermal (Pulsar HD19A).
Coyote was broadside at about 75 yards just standing there and I am waiting for
the bang, but as with our first outing the shot never came since he couldn’t
find this one either. I think I was more frustrated than him wanting for him to
get one. On to the next stand we tried to be as quiet as possible going in and
kept scanning up and down the waterway as we approached the set up. This time,
I told my son to turn on his new HTRN T-20 Infinity as in the previous set we
had not used any IR and that probably contributed to his inability to spot the
first coyote. Well, it PAYS to be as quiet as you can. I figured we might be
calling for a bit but right at the 3 minute mark I see a coyote coming in about
100 yards from the call! Where it was or came from I have no idea but I alerted
my son who this time finds him with the thermal, clicks on the T-20 and swings
into position. I whisper "got him" as the coyote is moving slowly
towards the decoy with his head down. I am about to woof to stop him as my son
says nothing except for the crack of the rifle and the coyote drops……..YES! He's
anxiously asking me if he should shoot him again but I say relax he's not
moving. Well, I let him sit a couple of minutes as I congratulated him and give
the adrenaline a little time to wear off before making sure everything is safe
and we go down to claim his prize (walked off 84 paces). What a bonus when we
get there. A most unusual colored dark to black coyote. Very cool & great
beginners luck! Good size too, going 43 lbs. Extra bonus for me as he got to
drag out his prize over rough chiseled ground about 300 yards up hill back to
the truck! Great memories!

This was my first night vision hunt and so glad
I made the switch. Kevin's customer service is second to none with countless
phone calls and emails and he has patience to spare. The infinity IR is the
only way to go. I've done a lot of shooting at night on range and noticed that if
you turn the infinity IR down to about 75% you are as covert as you will ever
get with night vision and still be able to see all you need to shoot anything you
call in. Also a big shout out to crooked creek custom call (Brian Combs) also a
game changer for my success.
