The best flashlight for hunting

When you plan to hunt, it's easy to hunt during the day, but if you want to hunt during the night, then you need the best flashlight for hunting.

before you choose a good flashlight for hunting you must know some tips.

1- Strobe light setting

Strobe light is a self-defense function, which can be used for disorienting, so in the fact it's your lifesaver.

2- Fixed beam light

You need a flashlight has a stronger lumen and fixed beam to provide this kind of light that you need.

3- Mount of the flashlight

You must make sure that you choosing a flashlight has a mount to make your hunting easier, but you must make sure that is compatible with your gun first.

4- The Battery

You need the flashlight works for a long time, So you need a type of battery you can depend on and suitable with your needs.

5- The Material

You need a strong flashlight to be durable to withstand the hunting activities, it must be a waterproof too.

The best light color for hunting

There are many light colors to hunt with white,green and red

depending on my experience you can hunt with any light but i prefer the red light with a predator hunt at night, and it  will effect your personal eye sight night vision the least of all colors that I have tried. Eye fatigue will be less which will let you stay on calling stands longer.

the green light helps you to see the darker animals like a wild hogs better than red light, but it's make animals start moving.

the white light gives you an extra distance, that's helps you to run.

My choice for a light will 99.9% always be RED, my second choice would be WHITE and try to condition them and you will hardly ever see me using GREEN light for anything except lighting my porch in honor of Veterans!
