Howdy.

I am looking for a simple set of head-mounted night vision binos.  I want to use them for night pig hunting.  I would use them either with a low-power scope or iron sights.  Range is out to 100 yards at the most or closer.  Time is night, and the pigs don't come out till late.  I can hear them, smell them, and I know they are there but there is just not enough ambient light to get a clean shot on them.  

I see several sets in the $500 +/- $200 range.  I am willing to gamble on something in this range, as I don't think I want to spend many thousands on a set of the more modern equipment, so this kind of limits me to a Gen 1 set.  

I don't know the manufacturers well enough to know who is a good one.  Yukon, ATK and others all make stuff.  

Anybody have practical experience with them? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bob,
Sorry to disappoint you, but imo 100 yds is totally out of the question for what you are willing to spend.
Even 25 yds would be unusually good. The pure image intensifier scopes in that price range lack the resolution to allow aimed shots at any reasonable range while the IR based systems require an IR spotlight. which does not work well beyond maybe 50 ft, plus it may create issues with the law.
