pulsar recon or yukon ranger

Postby clivelove on Thu May 31, 2012 8:25 am

hi there
i was wondering if there is anybody out there that could help me on the decision between the pulsar recon or the yukon ranger (not the pro) i did hear the ranger pro was not worth the extra 300 pounds because the view was pretty much the same. i do a lot of foxing and i already have the nite site ns200 and im very pleased with it but i dont like waving the gun around to checkout the fields. i have read a lot of your forums and it seems to be in favour of the yukon ranger 5x42. i am looking to see around 150yards with a clear recognition of a fox or perhaps a bit further and then i dont have to shine a big lamp about and spook the fox, so if anybody could let me know it would be much appreciated
up to now i favour the yukon ranger
many thanks

I am a fan of both units, and there are differences between the two. The Recon uses less batteries and batteries last longer. This is just an advance in their technology, Pulsar and Yukon are both owned by the same company. If battery life isn't an issue, than save a little money up front with the Ranger. I have used the Ranger and at 100 yards been able to Identify a raccoon, but at 150 yards it might be harder to have recognition of smaller animals. If more ambient light is present, ie stars or moon, you will have abetter chance.

cheers trevor b
sorry for the late reply just got back from a weekend break up west wales.
thanks for the reply i think its going to be the ranger then, and i think it will be the standard yukon ranger rather than the pro because of the price i did read on another forum that there was not much difference between the standard and the pro but yet they say the pro can see for 500 hundred meters or more so i dont know if they are exaggerating or not.
anyway thanks again
and i let you now how i get on with it when purchased
cheers

Agreed, for the price, I would stick with the standard Ranger.
