Thermal-imaging devices are absolutely incredible for finding animals at night, making any warm creature stand out starkly against the cool background of the countryside; they leap out of the image, even if they’re behind cover like bushes or long grass. They’re also excellent for finding shot game in rough cover, so you’ll never lose a shot rabbit again. However, they’re very expensive, at a price few airgunners would consider, so imagine our delight when Scott Country shocked us with the news that their new Seek Reveal XR Fast Frame, hand-held thermal imager, which goes on sale at the Northern Shooting Show, is just £419.99! It’s about the size and weight of a large smartphone, so will easily fit into your pocket. We’ve ordered a test sample and can’t wait to get it into the field. Look out for an in depth review soon. www.scottcountry.co.uk
A thermal imager for £420? Yes it is!
