Night Vision?

How well do night vision goggles work? I looked through a cheap(er) night vision scope about 5 years ago and wasn't impressed.. How much would some desent goggles cost?
A friend of the family has a coyote problem on their farm and asked if I wouldn't mind coming out one night and taking care of their problem. It's dark though..REALLY dark at night on their farm.
Thoughts?

You have to pay to play. I bought a 2nd gen monocular last year for a couple hundo and its works okay but you need a little moon light.

Go check out the forums and reviews at http://www.opticsplanet.com/

you need to check out colored lights instead of night vision
coyotes eyes reflect like a deers eyes do etc.
Red light is preferred but you dont mention what state this is in and laws vary by state.

I got a PVS14 and it works GREAT! Would love to get it out on my 300 Blackout rifle and give your coyote a surprise... Let me know if you need some help...

I'll get it out tonight and try to get some pics through it for ya. It works as advertised. Check out TNVC for good products and pics/video.

That's not a pic of exactly my gun. Mine is a Knight's Armament. but same Aimpoint and sight. Might even be able to creep out a DBAL2 or PEQ15 for the hunt....

You must have too much money. A PVS 14 is an expensive piece of equipment.

the goggles can mess with your depth perception. could be an issue if your walking in thick woods, over downed trees, etc
