Does the following phrase include Thermal weapon sights?

They been shooting pigs with night vision in TX for years. It may depend on the species your hunting. I'm sure your local warden will gladly clear things up for you. Asking first is recommended, but I'm sure they'd go the other route if they catch you doing it!
I posed this question as I want to upgrade my ATN THOR 640 5X to the new version they just came out with. However, my buddy who is my best prospect to buy this lives in a state that appears to be non night vision friendly like mine is :eek:( That said I'll need to sell locally to be sure...
