With the night hunting season on the horizon, I will be switching my guns over to thermal. I gave the Sightmark Wraith a good test the last 2 months and put together a Coyote Montage of some of the kills. I hope you enjoy.

Are you skinning all those coyotes?

Nice shooting!

Thanks.

I don't personally skin any coyotes. I have a fur buyer who buys them from me in the carcass. For people who do it themselves, I have a ton of respect. From my perspective, it isn't worth my time as I would rather be hunting. All of the coyotes in these videos plus ones I didn't capture on video are in freezers currently and will be taken to my fur buyer as soon as I run out of freezer space. The coyotes furred up a little earlier than normal. They won't all bring top-dollar as some were mid-late September coyotes but still will be worth some money.

Kirsch,
Are you going to share any nighttime videos with this sight? Looks good in the day.

Night hunting is not legal in my state until after deer season closes. I have such a short window to hunt coyotes with thermal, so the Wraith won't see any nighttime action. Although the reason I purchased the Wraith was for daytime video footage, I was asked about the Wraith's night performance a lot. Due to this, I did some non-hunting tests of the Wraith shown in the video below.

Got it, it looks pretty darn nice at that price point in your link. I asked because I have a buddy who's looking for a unit.

One thing to keep in mind is all digital night vision devices require a lot of IR (focused) in comparison to Gen 2-3 night vision. The stock IR on the Wraith is actually pretty decent and can reach to about 150 yards consistently. If a person needs more, they would need to purchase one of the various high output IR light option which is outside my area of expertise.

Bottom line is you get a lot of features for a fairly affordable price with the Wraith. The fact that it can be used both day and night is a huge bonus.

I have 4 or 5 different ones the Infinity sold by hightechredneck works the best. Prpbably get 300 yards or more in open meadow. Have killed some 180 yards at night. I am like Kirsch. This does not take the place of my thermal, but it is very, very nice for 500 dollars.
