Just a note: I use a green streamlight and thought it would not spook game. Well the Turkeys sure don't like it, I scared them of the roost several times during this deer season.


Green and red light work well on deer because of the deer's ability to see a limited color spectrum.

Birds like turkeys see the world a lot differntly than deer. I imagine most light colors will pretty well spook them, but I still use green to keep from spooking deer, which can alarm turkey. Plus it is a lot easier on my eyes.

I use one of them cheap brim mount green leds from walmart for climbing. I usually use a mini maglite converted to led when needed. I ran across 2 surefire flashlights for sale on an offroad forum last week and said what the heck and bought them both for $50+the ride. It was a G2 with and Led and a G3 with a regular bulb. Both included new batteries. They are awesome. The G3 is brighter than my d cell maglite. I am very impressed with these lights.

I just bought the new Coleman l.e.d light they have at WalMart, 115 lumens and it has a built in red and green LED switch. $29 bucks so Im really looking forward to using it in about 3 weeks! That same amount of light in a stream light or g2 nitrolon is much higher. It's aluminum just like the high dollar lights.

It's a very nice light for the price and they also have a headlight that runs on 3 AAA batteries and has a high and low output. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10196615

Both are great deals.

I use a Brinkman LED headlight and for tracking a Garrity LED spotlight, the spotlight is really cool, it will burn forever since it's LED and it's a pistol grip style that really puts out some light(not quite a q-beam but won't run out of juice in the middle of a track on you either). It only cost about $15 at Wally and one of the best bargains I've gotten in a long time.

Go here and you can get non bias information. I bought the number 1 ranked FENIX and i love it and have showed to all my friends that own the SUREFIRE'S and they were WOWED and being able to use the AA batteries and $59.00 is a no brainer... Hopes this Helps...
