When choosing a thermal add-on for a scope, the detection range is a critical factor that can significantly influence performance.

A longer detection range allows you to spot targets from a greater distance, providing a considerable advantage by giving you more time to plan your approach or take a shot. This is especially beneficial in open fields or large areas where game or threats might be far away.

State records show that reports of nuisance, or unwelcome, black bears made to the state through late June mostly reflected 2017’s totals.

Saddle River moves ahead with law to allow bow hunting of deer


OCTOBER 26, 2015    LAST UPDATED: MONDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2015, 1:21 AM

SADDLE RIVER — A newly introduced ordinance would lift the borough’s ban on hunting and, if adopted, would let officials move forward with plans to allow limited bow hunting of deer.

The measure, introduced last week, came after borough officials and residents spent the last year discussing what to do with what the local Board of Health has deemed a public health risk: the borough’s growing deer population. At recent public forums on the issue, members of a borough study committee discussed allowing limited bow hunting of deer on property with landowners’ written, prior permission.

“I think deer impose a high risk and health hazard, and hunting is the only way we have of dealing with that,” Board of Health President Duncan Carpenter said in an interview Friday.
