Managing Predators with ATN

By: Austin Delano

A vital part of increasing small game numbers is managing the predators that are a constant threat to them at all times. Turkeys, rabbits, quail, and fawns are all vulnerable to predators whose numbers are at all-time highs in many areas. Trapping predators is very effective and is a must use tool for wildlife managers but it is not the only tool. Hunting predators is not only a great way to hone your skills with different weapons but also a great activity during the late winter when food sources may be scarce and many predators small and large are more active and visible. We all love great equipment when it comes to firearms and optics and the ATN X-Sight 4K Pro is a game changer for predator hunters. This Day/Night scope allows you to utilize its clear, crisp daytime pictures as well as amazing night vision capabilities especially with the infrared illuminator. Bobcats, coyotes, raccoons and many other predators are much more active when the sun goes down, the ability to use the cover of darkness to set up and hunt them during their prime hunting hours tilts the odds in your favor. The ATN X-Sight 4K Pro is loaded with features to help increase accuracy on many different firearms and the ability to digitally record your hunt day and night. Predator control is a major part of wildlife management and conservation. ATN Optics are another great tool for the Gamekeeper to use in managing properties of all sizes.
