Today I want to share with you my positive experience with an EOTech thermal imaging product. It aids visibility in day or night time conditions. The device works on sensing levels of heat, for tracking and locating, and it works at great distances.

Thermal imaging technology used by the military and law enforcement caught my attention in 2008 as a convenient tool for tracking wounded and dangerous black bears after dark and for scouting moose. I got to use a device issued to a SWAT team member hunting moose with me in Maine. However, at the time, even if an unclassified consumer product was available, the $10,000 price tag made me pause.

Today anyone can own an even more advanced version than the pricey SWAT issued scope. Retail prices are in the $3,000 to $4,000 range. Technology is always advancing and today military suppliers are looking for a retail market for this advanced technology. (Be careful when traveling with a thermal scope, not all foreign countries allow non-military use of these devices.)


Recently, I’ve been testing the innovative X-320 30hz imaging device produced by EOTech. EOTech is part of L3 a $17 billion in sales company involved in aerospace, communications, electronic security, and national security solutions. I am using their holographic weapon sights and tactical lights and love them. This thermal device is also easy to love.  

Scouting roosted turkeys, locating blood trails, and finding expired animals are easier with this now indispensable tool. The clarity, sharpness and overall image quality is exceptional. And, the long runtime of 6 hours on 2 AA lithium batteries is far superior to 2008 technology which required frequent recharging. This is the perfect tool for getting the job done when the lodge is full. It’s designed to handle challenging weather conditions and weighs less than a pound and it has a video port for recording. I can’t wait to use this during bear season.

If you can’t afford your own scope, get your hunting club or hunting buddies to share the cost. It will become indispensable at your camp too.

Plus, for a short period of time you can get a brand new x-320 directly from me for just $3,295.00 plus shipping and handling. Retail is $3,799. Demo devices used by my clients and guides will be available shortly for even less.
