Might be a post by "Smart" can't remember. But, they bought lights from harbor freight painted the lenses green and created their own. Could be dreaming about this... but I feel confident I read that. Maybe search cheap feeder lights. Or feeder lights harbor freight.

I just bought the Fenix HM65R head lamp and super impressed. It has spotlight and floodlight you can run separate or run both at same time.

Iím a huge fan of Fenix lights and this one doesnít disappoint.

LED Lenser has the best headlights hands down. Nothing compares to them!!! Ain’t cheap but well worth it.

Those Sniper 40KAP headlights are the brightest I've ever used or seen. They make an after dark blood trail seem like you are following it in the daylight. Glad to have it tracking a bow shot pig in the heavy brush after dark. Plus it lights up the night for a great LDP if you need it.


These are just a couple of examples of the pics I have used it for in the pitch dark.. The LDP had it set up on a tripod while FND took the pic.

I like the Hybrid head lamp for going to blind. Has white, red w high/low. Good charge time. Plenty bright for general use as well.
Feeder lights I like Elusive WL sportsman model in green.
