Looking to get a thermal scanner. Mostly hunt open terrain but have areas where I can hunt heavily wooded areas along a river also. I will need to be able to identify targets for sure.

The scanners I am considering based on my budget is the Axiom30 Key. Was quoted $1700 for it.
The Helion XQ38. Quoted $2600.
FLIR's Scout III 640. Found it for $2200.

What is your opinion /experience with any of these?
How far can a person realistically be able to identify animals?
Is there a better option in my price range? The $2600 is the top of my price range for sure and is stretching it a little as is.
If anyone knows where a person can get better pricing that would be great as well.

Thanks for any help!
