I have used them all. I have killed a tons of yotes under white light. If they are educated then it doesn't matter the color.
I use green for hogs and had great luck. If you ever question white light take a look at this video. These guys are one of the best, they kill hundreds of animals every year under white light, looks like a football stadium when they turn on there light setup.


Great video!!  Thanks for sharing!  I have been night hunting since I was 15.  Had a cassette tape recorder and some Burnham Brothers tapes when I was 15 in 1978.  Then I went to mouth calls, still stuck with the Burnham Brothers calls.  I've use big ol spotlights with gigantic batteries.  The stuff now is so much better than when I was a teenager.  Heck the first time I took my ex-wife out on a date when I was 16, I shot a grey fox from the front seat of my Dad's truck and the cassette player on top of the truck.  I think those guys do a lot of hunting in Texas, the Mecca of night hunting, but this state is also a lot of fun to hunt at night and you almost always have the whole place to yourself!!

Lights work once in a while.  Thereís a real technique in killing yotes with lights here in Washington at least.  Iíve definitely called a far share of yotes in with lights, but killing them can be tough. Calling them in under total darkness is what I like to do,  using a thermal monocular and a night vision scope
