The use of thermal detecting devices is becoming more and more popular with hunters. The ability to detect the presence of body heat can alert hunters to an animal lurking nearby, even in low light – and such devices can be invaluable for recovering downed game.
It takes more than a thermal device to add up to a successful hunt, so to that end here’s our list of the top 5 pieces of gear needed to get the job done right.
Thermal Device of Your Choice
There are numerous types of thermal imaging devices available, and making that choice is a personal thing – as is hunting itself. So do your research to decide what’s best for you, and go with that.
Swagger Bipod Stalker QD42
The QD42 may be the most flexible (in more ways than one) bipod you’ve ever used. Flex Ready technology allows a wide range of easy-but-steady movement so you can smoothly follow a moving target. Quick detach functionality will enable it to be installed and removed in just a few seconds using the included sling stud adapter (or a pic rail) on the rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader or crossbow. Easy height adjustments from 14 to 42 inches and a weight of 15 ounces make it truly portable. Also, the rubber feet can be easily removed to expose the spikes for rugged terrain.
NEBO Tools Luxtreme SL100 Portable Spotlight
Today’s high-efficiency batteries and advanced light technology mean you can have a compact spotlight that’s easy to take afield. The NEBO Luxtreme SL100 is the absolute best choice; it’s compact, rugged and IP67 water-resistant and offers an ultra-long one-mile laser light beam, close-range wide floodlight, and red light to save your night vision. Magnetic base, tripod-mountable, removable/reversible belt clip, and easy mode selection and on/off trigger switch. Recharge via USB-C or use the included 12v adapter with a vehicle plug for continuous runtime.
TRUE Fixed Blade Knife
A knife is probably the most useful tool there is, and hunters need one more than most other folks. TRUE’s fixed blade knife offers a 4″ drop point blade of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a durable black oxide finish and a brown thermoplastic rubber handle with a glass breaker pommel. The molded sheath has a nylon loop adapter, matches the handle color, and is adjustable for scout, drop leg, or MOLLE carry. Full tang construction and an overall length of 8 inches make this the ideal companion on any thermal hunt.
