Burris Thermal Handheld units allow you to hunt at night by scanning the landscape for heat signatures through an eyepiece, or conveniently on your phone screen. With handheld thermal optics, you can quickly and easily identify potential target animals—and from great distances. You won’t be able to see full heat signatures through too much cover, but you can still sneak a peek to see if there are hints of critters lurking in the brush.
The Thermal Handheld units from Burris allow you to track heat signatures out to 750 yards. You can sync these thermals with your mobile phone to control, view and record video of what you’re seeing in real time. Currently offered in two models: 3.3-13.2x50mm and 2.3-9.2x35mm.
Handheld thermal scanners for finding hogs, predators and other critters at night.
Depending on your locale, several species can be legally hunted at night. Hogs, predators and even exotic animals in states such as Texas can provide exciting hunting opportunities after dark. Night hunting with thermal optics is safer and more reliable than relying on the glow of a full moon, and it’s generally more effective than using green or red lights.
Consumer-grade thermal technology of this caliber is a relatively new phenomenon. Previously, high-quality thermal optics were only available to military and law enforcement agencies, but now hunters can tap into the power of thermal at a reasonable price.
Our team got together with Phil Harding, product manager at Burris, to test the new full line of Burris thermal optics at a hog hunting camp in Georgia. You can watch the hunt in “Night Swine”—a HuntStand Original Film.
