your favorite light?

Postby luvhuntin » Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:08 pm

Mine is the one i never have to use but when i do use one, i`ve got a streamlight stinger c4 led that i bought at the end of season last year, it has a high med and low setting for brightness and if you double tap the switch you get a distress strobe. it is the brightest thing i have ever used bar none,(quote on their website says 17000 candela)

if you go for the kit they sell it comes with 2 batteries a recharger that will recharge both batteries at the same time, (one in the flashlight and a side slot for the other battery) which you can use in your car or plugged into the wall.

stay out of the darkness my Friends.

I have Petzl headlamp with red and clear lenses. I also have a Surefire flashlight with a red lens filter with LED bulb. Both tolerate extreme weather well and never have failed me.
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.

I have a compact Surefire that is extremely bright and very easy to pack. I don't go anywhere without it, and use it for everything from hunting, to setting it on the nightstand next to the Glock for home defense. They aren't cheap, but as long as you keep track of it, it will last you forever. Also very efficient on battery life!

I use an inexpensive Eveready visor light It has a red LED I use when moving to/from stands in the dark. The other setting is 2 white LEDS which I use for tracking and recovery after dark. Keeps my hands free when I'm dragging one out. I also keep a Mag-Lite as a backup and to aid in tracking. Sometimes having something hand held with which you can change the angle of the light easily is a big help on a difficult tracking job.

Nooo, but I do know of them. I used to fish up in that area by Black Earth Creek (I think that's what it was called), and while trout fishing there I found some antique beer bottles from New Glarus. Nice area.
