I would think it would be illegal to hunt with NVG's.

I was able to train with NVG's when I was in the USMC.....it is some cool stuff.

My daydream HD setup awhile ago was to install a panic button near my bed that would kill all power to my house, making it nice and dark.  Then I would use my M4 with a NV enhanced aimpoint.  Then I realized they will probably have flashlights.. so much for that idea

FIRST AND SECOND GEN. UNITS ARE STILL FUZZY AS THE DAY THEY WERE NEW .
THIRD ON GETS SO EXPENSIVE .
YOU CAN USE THIS STUFF FOR ANY NIGHT HUNTING THAT IS LEGAL I BELIEVE . YOU CAN NOT SHOOT DEER THAT WOULD BE A BIG NO-NO RACCOONS OK

yea, ***** only over in pa at private camp. surprised the 2nd gen are fuzzy considering the prices, that's mainly why i'm asking if anyones used the cheaper ones and whether it's worth the trouble price etc.

I thought this was cool. It is either free standing or you have a scope adapter.
yea that is pretty uncoventional. anyone know what they mean by damage from daylight to the units. are the regular ones suseptable to damage from sunlight?

Most NVG's are built to shut down if the ambient light levels get too high. But some do not and when they get exposed to, while on, too bright a light, they can actually"burn" the receptors in the device. It causes large dark blurs to form. Like a dead pixel on an LCD screen.

i was looking at these on the net, think they are worth the money?
I got them for free so I can't complain... ;) I would say if you are looking for a basic set of nv they are pretty good. I don't like the head mount and use it more like a small hand held spotting scope. There is NO magnification on these.

There are several different technologies as defined by the word "generation" above, googling the wiki will probably give the information you seek.

Any technology that uses projected light, including IR spectrum light, is illegal for hunting AFAIK. I am not sure about scopes that amplify existing light AKA "starlight" scopes.

One interesting newer development is the laser designator, available in visible or IR wavelengths. This device uses a set of collimating lenses to slightly defocus a laser to the point that it pwovides useful illumination for a conventional optical or IR scope.
