I have always felt if you want to track a BF in the dark (or even light in heavy woods) this is by far the best tool for the job.  Far better than any FLIR on the market.

 

I'll disagree with your conclusion. I have a Pulsar thermal imager and can tell right away whether the noise source is a deer, coyote, or something else.  A  sound amplifier as outlined above will provide information that something is out there. It is not easy to determine the distance and what exactly is causing it.

 

Moreover, if a sasquatch was trying to sneak up and was very quiet, it might not be easy to distinguish what was making the sound. Contrast that with the thermal imager that will identity the target . No escaping a heat signature.

 

Nathan Footer is spot on and, in my opinion, a thermal imager is a game changer.

OK ok.  For the dollar, best deal out there.  I would like a helmit mounted version that would be always on.  If I picked up something suspicious I could use the thermal for final ID.  Better?

I'm enjoying everything I've bought from Uberleben. I have several ferro rods, the tea/cook pot and the foldaway stove. I haven't used the stove yet, but it feels solid. The ferro rods create rivers of sparks, and are fabulous. I've been practicing fire making with my wood/charcoal Volcano BBQ grill. Nice stuff.

My new Uberleben stove in action :)

 

2 cotton balls with Vaseline, some dried moss, 6 twigs and one single very dry kindling stick both cooked my dinner and heated hot water for coffee. My kid cooked it all for Mother's Day - and he even used the ferro rod to start the fire. Beautiful!
