If you’ve ever hunkered down in a blind or against a tree at night hoping to spot incoming game before they spot you – hoping not to miss them entirely – you understand the need for a good flashlight. Not a flashlight that floods the woods or field with a bright white light that would definitely scare off all the game in the area, that is, but one that helps you see without being readily detected by wildlife.
There are quite a few hunters with flashlights mounted to their guns, and although that certainly has its benefits, it’s also good to have one in your pants-leg pocket. Constantly raising and lowering your rifle to scan the area gets tiring fast. Of course, all gun owners tend to have a big stash of flashlights on hand, with an interesting mix of cast-offs, maybes, and a very few favorites. If you’re looking for a new light you can use at night without announcing your presence to woodland creatures, take a look at this latest offering from Ultimate Wild.
Ultimate Wild makes a number of products for outdoorsmen. Their new product is a micro flashlight called the Micro 150. It is, as the name suggests, 150 lumens. It’s a green LED light designed for durability and the ability to handle the various bumps and scrapes of time spent in the woods.
Game such as deer and feral hogs do not see green on the color spectrum like we do which makes it the perfect choice for hunting. Studies show deer tend to see violet shades and even ultraviolet lights best while hogs are essentially color-blind. Even so, it is a light, so rather than simply pointing it directly at your intended target right off the bat try first pointing it at the ground then sweeping upwards towards your target.
