I occasional (when needed on my farm so not too often) do coyotes. I use a pvs14 behind an aimpoint on a removal mount. I use a surefire light on the gun with a IR head. I have a DBAL but I really don't find it needed at the ranges I'm willing to shoot as when I get involved in this the ranges are very short and I'm not calling etc.
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
I do some night shooting. I have a 556 rifle with an Armasight/FLIR Predator thermal scope. I also own an Armasight N14 gen 2+HD helmet mounted nod. and an AR15 mounted Steiner DBAL I2. Mostly just shooting steel at night no real hunting... Yet.

We use a pre-Tijicon IR Hunter. Works very well. Friends here use cheaper scopes (Pulsar, etc.) and while they work, they often have trouble telling difference between hogs and calves - big problem. The IR has great resolution even at high digital zoom. Only complaints- it’s big and heavy but that’s the trade off for quality and it eats batteries.
