One of the very few times that I did not need my FLIRs......








Suckers came out of the woods about a 150 yards down the road and walked right up to me?[:O]

Must have thought I was their momma.

****, I was hoping these Walker Evan Baja 500 Race Shocks would be nice, they are beyond nice, they are fantastic, next thing I know I'm going to get some air!

After installing the 30 pound AGM battery and the 15 pound FLIR M instrument/accessories and another ten pounds of welded 3/8' steel for the battery box and the mil-spec 850 IR spot beam, I wanted to replace the front OEM KYB shocks to improve the vibration and ride for using the thermal video camera.

Major f-ing improvement in everything, much less vibration and bouncing around and much quieter too, handling and compliance is way way better.











The FLIR M-Series is totally real mil-spec for water proof, vibration, shock, dust, etc. but is always best to treat sensitive instruments as well as possible, not to mention the video output will be much smoother too.

The Honda OEM 44mm light bar clamps fit the front bumper large tubes.

Isn't it a bit of an unfair advantage to use a thermal camera to go hunting?

In Alaska they banned drones for use in hunting. I think this might fall in the same category.

Those baby hogs are ridiculously cute. Do they just snort around in a little pack like that?

I don't think I have ever run into a wild hog/pig. Maybe they don't really exist in the area where I live.

Do you use your Pioneer mostly for hunting?

It's legal to use in most Southeastern states. The wild hog problem is very bad down here. They cause a huge amount of money in damage to land and livestock. They are like rats in your house. Eating your food and making holes in your wall and pooping everywhere.

We work with the Fish and Game Wildlife Officers and State Park Natural Resources to eliminate destructive swine and vermin on public and private property day and night.

Ever seen an upscale Country Club golf course and suburban homes totally wrecked like someone took a hundred backhoes to the property? Water lines broken, electric lines uprooted, yards, pools, totally ripped to shreds, expensive shrubbery destroyed, endangered flora and fauna habitat destroyed and their young killed?

How about children standing in the street waiting for the school bus to pick them up and getting attacked by an angry pack of razorbacks?

Wild hogs are not game animals, there are not indigenous game, they are foreign invasive destructive beasts, you can hunt them 24/7/365 on private property all year round.

If you want a good thermal weapon scope that is legal to use on game animals during hunting season during the day, or on vermin day and night, the FLIR RS Thermal Weapon scopes are first class and a total game changer.
