mononcular for night time crossbow hunting.

I'm looking for some info on using a monocular with headgear to look thru my day scope on my crossbow. Is this possible without changing the day scope's zero? I'm only needing 30-40 yards. Is this possible with a monocular NV for under $400? Thanks for all the help in advance!

You can use the OPMOD Gen1M. It comes with headgear. It's a 1x monocular you can use through your crossbow scope. Beware, this is not an optimum set up. Looking through a magnified optic results in a blurred image that's hard to position correctly. But for that kind of money and equipment, that's what you can expect. It will work, but it may be more trouble than it's worth. You may want to consider a green light like the Streamlight Game Spotter, or even a laser. I hope you know your game laws.
