DIY Remote Hog Hunting IR Lights

Remote IR LightA lot of people ask about my Remote IR Light setup which I keep using in combination with the ATN X-Sight I or X-Sight II. The reason is simple – it allows you to light up feeders, bait spots, trails and etc. nicely without having to have a clear line of sight and with greater flexibility.

I have been using these self-contained setups on my 200 yard feeder, in order to be able to see hogs early on and to give me the option to get out of my hunting stand and sneak up on them. These IR LED flood lights run off a 12V battery and depending on battery size, they will last all night long and longer.

The whole set up is housed in a weatherproof plastic box, which can be placed on top of feeders, on the ground or strapped to trees.
If you want to get fancy, you can add a 12V remote control unit, which allows you to turn on and off one or more lights via the press of a button on a remote.

You can see these lights in action in this video.

Time needed: 20 minutes

Just found the Phantom 3 Advanced on Amazon Lightning deals for $599 if anyone is looking for one. This is a great price. I paid $399 for my Standard only a few weeks back.

ATN BinoX HD – Review






Delicious deer meat for the freezer

I got late on my lease this year and wasn’t able to get a good setup going for bow season so I’ve decided to get a doe with my 300 AAC Blackout AR15. This is the first time I’m hunting for deer with a rifle. All the deer I’ve harvested before were taken with bow and arrow.

I’ve seen this doe on game camera pictures before. She has a yearling with her, and usually waited until the young was already all over the corn on the ground before even moving in. She’s very careful and I almost missed my chance.

I took the shot in what was probably the last second I had available. She dropped right away. She was at about 75 yards and I sighted in at 50 yards. At 75 yards, the 110 grain Barnes VOR-TX round is about an inch high, and at 100 yards it’s back to zero. You can see in the video that I was aiming low. Let’s be honest, this might have been a lucky shot but I was able to do all the right things at the right time.

This was also the first opportunity to put my Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI ESP (in Polaris Pursuit Camo) to work, which worked out great!
