Digital Night Vision Monocular: A Game-Changer for Hunting and Prepping

Guest post by Kalman of

As a night hunter and peeper, you must need the right viewing device to detect your prey. Night vision monoculars have gained popularity for their compact size and optical performance in this regard. They can be used for different night viewing activities such as camping, hunting, wildlife observation, and other nocturnal purposes. Digital night vision monoculars are a newcomer in the market compared to traditional devices.

The invention of digital NV monocular made today’s night hunting easier than the previous time. They are available with different budgets and one device can be used for multi-tasks. Their optical function is wonderful compared to the price. This is a prime reason that makes them superior to traditional ones. Moreover, they use advanced technology that makes them useable at night along with the day.

Newbie hunters often confuse in choosing between analog and digital night version monoculars. I always prefer the digital type for hunting due to some specific reasons. In the next section, I will shortly explain the facts.

Digital Optics are Affordable

Most of the higher generations’ standard monoculars are pricy products. That’s why the middle-income people can’t afford them for their night viewing purposes. Luckily, digital monoculars are available with pocket-friendly prices.

The clip-on digital NV devices are affordable than the traditional type. Now, anyone can own them easily according to his/her budget. But quality goes the same even better sometimes than the traditional monoculars.

Make Distant Targets Closer

Most of the night vision monoculars have impressive range finding capabilities. That allows scanning and detecting targets from far. It is a great safety factor at the night. Some of them allow you to view targets more than 300 m away in the low light conditions.

You don’t need to be worried about magnification while using digital night vision monoculars. These optics have optical zoom as well as digital zoom that allow you magnifying targets more than 10 to 30 times of the real objects.

Usable at Day and Night

If you use analog night vision devices in the daylight, most of their intensifier tubes get ruined and need changing. On the other hand, digital night watching optics can be used at night besides daytime.

Illuminators Ease Hunting without Spotting Yourself

Digital night sighting monoculars use large wavelength infrared illuminators. This is higher than 850 nm that is invisible to any animals. In this way, you can watch out for the prey without making them alert.

As animals can’t detect in such illuminations hence you will be safe from unwanted wild beast attack. It is a great step forward for hunting situations. This is an important reason behind making the rapid development of digital NV monoculars.

Color Filter is Awesome

A handy feature that you will get from the digital optics is the multiple color filter options. Besides the green color, you can switch the red and gray colors also. This will help you save battery power greatly.

Resolution is Quite Good for Hunting

The advanced generations of analog optics provide better resolution than digital devices. If budget is not a problem then you can go for the analog devices. But considering hunting at night, digital NV optics will provide decent resolution.

Moreover, these devices eliminate the necessity of ambient light sources. That makes the devices workable in low-light or complete dark cases.

Perfect for Outdoors and Survival Conditions

The lower generations’ night vision devices don’t allow you to record the live scenarios of the field. But digital night vision devices overcome these shortcomings. Even your friends and family can be able to see live streaming of your hunting.

Some of them have GPS trackers, Wi-Fi modes that make them perfect for survival situations. You can also scan your surroundings and keep yourself safe from wild animals or any other unwanted scenarios.

Longer Lifespan Device

If you compare the lifespan of analog devices and digital devices. Digital NV optics provide better performance than typical monoculars. So, you can use the same digital device years after years. No matter either you use handheld or rifle-mounted monocular, you will always get extended life.

Final Thoughts

Digital night vision monocular is a must-have gadget for hunters and might be a life-saving device sometimes. By taking this gadget, you will get the close looks of the hunting animals. In this way, you’ll be able to make the perfect shot of the prey without losing any of the opportunities. Moreover, your hunting will be more enjoyable and accurate.

So, never forget to keep this useful survival device while go hunting. Just watch out your surroundings and make a successful shot as well as keep yourself safe from the worst scenario. Now get prepared for the next hunting trip!
