Why not just leave it white/ without the film?

The hogs will get use to it after it being out for a couple weeks.

Cool. I saw those at store and thought about buying it because I had mine from Home Depot up on feeder. I liked it until con or tree rat chewed the wires up on top of light housing. Grr.

I'll show you my set up when I drive back in there again. Cutting up window trim for interior blind.

Would you mount this to a post and aim it under your feeder? I see the one mounted to the feeder leg. Would that cause a problem when the coons try to climb the leg? Thanks

^^^^ put that up today after realizing that staking into ground isn't working out for me very well. Now trying this placement and see how it works out. Also have this under the varmint cage.

I have always been told that animals and not bothered by red light. Is this because they cant see red?

I was thinking that a light like this would help a game cam out for night pics. Does any have any pics from a trail cam with an external light?
