  • Helmet lights for night hunts.....Green or Red or White or all.....???

    I am looking to mount some lights on a "Lightweight Marine Corps Helmet" and could use some advise on preferred mounting systems, preferred light colors for winter predator hunting. I am thinking the sidewinder light and mount, but very open to suggestions.

    I watched a show on TV recently whee the guys were trying to show light color was irrelevant, they killed a bunch of coyotes with white light rather than the normal red or green. I've got no experience night hunting personally.

        don't know much about a "helmet mount" my light is connected to my scope so no need to wear a helmet! only shot one lynx with this setup and it didn't seem bothered too much by my white light (didn't give it much time thoughroud.

          Ive only called in 2 fox but both of them ran into 30 yards and wee both with a white light.. Was just using a 80 lumen head lamp though, so maybe the low intensity didnt make them nervous?

            I think the biggest issue using white light is your own vision, not the critters, if using it to look at something you hear coming in. I haven't seen any light color make them bolt instantly; white light destroys your night sight for a few minutes, though. Especially annoying if you just need to snap on a light for a second to check for gear or look at the trail. Red light is awesome for that, and doesn't seem to bother game at all.
