I've recently acquired a Gen 1 intensifier, and after a bit of metalbashing have fashioned a bracket and mounted it on my .22 (yes, it's bulky and heavy but for under Â£50 I'm not complaining). Last night was, for once, clear, dry and with a good moon so I went out to see how I got on with the bunnies. A nice walk, and with the recent rain the winter crops are sprouting so the fields are getting well nibbled. Visibility was very good, clear definition up to 50m and, in the moonlight, I'd have seen any deer/fox that were out there well up to 200m. However, in monochrome it was much harder to see the bunnies except when they're moving. I have a LED torch on my rifle, and with that on it was like bright daylight (to be honest way too bright for the intensifier) with the added bonus that the bunnies' eyes lit up and I could see them even when static. My question is - would I be better off with an IR illuminator, or a gentler visible light torch? Can bunnies / foxes even see IR? I certainly think that some form of additional illumination is the way ahead, just to get the eye glow.
