Night lights
« on: February 02, 2017, 09:56:29 PM »
Anyone hunting yotes at night? Do you have a preference on light setups? I've been looking at the wicked brand lights. Are they worth the price? Looking for recommendations.

Wicked is great, night eyes are great and light force is amazing.

I picked up a armytek predator for $55 bucks on sale. great little light! brighter and throws just as far as a 3 million candlepower q-beam(about 200-250 yards). put an olight magnetic mount on it so its easy and fast to swap from scanning to weapon mounted. after months of reviews and research I went with the nightsnipe ns550 for my main weapon mounted light. I got a white LED and a red LED. so far ive been able to easily see full illumination out to 400 yards with the red and I bet white would be 500-550. eyeshine would probably be 600 for the red and 750-800 for the white. I was absolutely blown away. plus they come with a 5 yr warranty. ive heard good things about both, wicked lights and the predator tactics lights. but I haven't used them so I cant weigh in on them.

Tell me about your night set up.  calling, bait, etc.  I have not had any success at night and I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

I'm trying to get myself in gear for night hunting, I have a gun mounted light and and a night vision monocular. I've been thinking of getting an ATN night vision scope as well. I've purchased everything from eBay so far 150 in but scopes start around 600 so it might be awhile before I get there.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

Wicked is the way to go, the zooming capability is awesome stuff, a must have.  I recently picked a Sightlight Photon XT 4.6x42s Digital Night scope and running a T20 illuminator, I had a ATN aries,  Photon out preforms big time.  I'm trying to get away from lights, I also picked up a thermal, for scanning.  Some areas where I hunt yotes are getting aliitle conditioned to lights.
