We Do it in the Dark
Yes, this is real life… we hunt packs of wild boars on foot and from moving vehicles with night vision goggles, thermal scopes, infrared laser sights, and suppressed firearm systems.
Just let that sink in for a minute…
Schedule an over-night hog hunt with us and all gear is provided (night vision, thermals, firearms, and ammo). All you have to do is get here with a pair of boots and dark clothing.
What HeliBacon Provides…
- Gen 3 PVS14 Night Vision Monoculars and PVS7 Night Vision Binoculars
- Trijicon REAP-IR 35mm thermal rifle scopes
- Custom built AR platform rifles chambered in 7.62×39
- Offroad vehicles equipped with night vision headlights and floodlights
- One hell of a good walk in the dark
We will meet with you at about 7:30 pm for a safety briefing and to run through a few drills prior to departing for the hunt. From there, we have primary hog country open for our hunts – and we know where all the honey pots are.
For safety sake, we will work in groups of 3-4 shooters at a time. Reconnaissance is made easy with the Trijicon REAP-IR 35mm thermal rifle scopes. We can effectively scan 750 yards out in 360-degree radius in about 5 seconds. After hogs are located, we will use our vehicles to get to the general area of the sounder before continuing our approach on foot. If the wind is in our face and you stay quiet, we frequently get within 20-30 yards, in complete stealth before firing the first shot.
This IS NOT hunting from ground blinds or tree stands and shooting at baited hogs or captive animals. This hunt involves spotting and stalking packs of feral hogs roaming unkempt terrain in the pitch black darkness with Night Vision. Be prepared to walk in rough uneven conditions and stay out until 1:30 in the morning. This is the real deal.
Trijicon REAP-IR 35mm Thermal Rifle Scopes
The REAP-IR rifle scope incorporates a 35mm 12° field of view, providing users with native 2.5x magnification at 640 x 480 pixels per inch. Combined with a BAE Systems 12um micron LWIR thermal core and the overall compact size of the scope, the REAP-IR is optimized for hog hunting. These are solid military grade scopes.
PVS7 Night Vision Goggles
The PVS 7 Gen 3 night vision goggles are a robust, dependable, high-performance night vision system adopted as a standard issue to our U.S. Army ground troops. The PVS 7 Gen 3 is lightweight, waterproof, handheld, head-mounted, and/or helmet-mounted making it perfectly suited for stalking hogs through the brush.
PVS14 Night Vision Monocular
The PVS-14 Gen 3 night vision monocular is a favorite among US military service personnel. State of the art night vision technology and adjustable gain control give hunters the best night vision image available.

”Set up a night hunt with Chris after finding out the helicopter was booked. Easy set-up and had a great time -Jimmy was our guide. The weather we had was terrible -cold with 30 MPH winds. Jimmy got us on some hogs. Night vision and thermal sights were new to me, but Jimmy was super safe while making sure we had a great hunt. Next time want to book the heli hunt or would do the night hunt again. If you're in the area, give these guys a try. They'll treat you right.~ David S.
