Default Mother Nature hates me!

I was suppose to go night hunting again tonight for fox and boar. Well, the stars are out, which makes these Germany forests pitch black. We can not use night sights, flashlights or lasers on any of our weapons over here. We hunt with at least x56 scopes to make up for the handicap. A good scope starts at a 1000€! My Meopta Meostar also has red dot. Well I guess I will just hang around the forums tonight.

We have feeders, but no lights. We can actually use night vision devices, but we can not put it on the gun. Some more info about German hunting. There are high seats, and ground level to elevated small fully covered room-like seating for two hunters around the feeders. The second type of seating is normally comfortable with cushioning, and some have portable heating. The rifles are supported by small sand bags or pillows. This is night hunting in Germany. We also carry handguns for protection or to make a final shot. We can use these seating in the day too, but there is also stalking, and standing in a fixed position (especially during drive hunts). We are allowed to use gaming cameras to see where the game is going, and at what time of the day.

Mother Nature hates me too. I think it snowed glue last night. I'm ready for spring.

Sure, as long as we do not attach it to the weapon. I know one hunter that holds up a monocular night vision scope to his left eye, while look through his scope with the right.

Hold on, then can you mount a clip-on to the rifle? i know some you can just put it before the day time scope and get a good night vision. Will that work?

Sorry, no clip on. Questions like this were asked during our hunting course. No night vision, laser or flashlights can be attached in any way to the rifle. Then again if nobody is watching.....
