Default Green Light

New "Green Light" mod for night time hog bow hunting.

The green light picture don't do it justice. That tree is right at 20 yards, and I can see it with the green light as plain as day. Plus, that's with the light set on flood. I can tighten the spot down real tight if I want/need to.

It's an amber rifle scope cover, that I tinted with a green sharpie.

Rigging up a stand for it for use in the blind, and will be rigging a bow mount for it sometime soon.

Yeah, but I didn't have to buy this extra, and it's as good (maybe) better, than anything I've seen for sale for this specific application.

The only thing brighter is a big laser, which I have also, but the laser will spook them if you hit them in the eyes with it.

Didn't get to use the light tonight.
Didn't see a thing, and I was there from 4 p.m. until two hours after dark. Big moon up all night, so I'm not surprised. I could probably go at 3 or 4 in the morning, and see lots of both deer & pigs.

I was going to mod a pressure switch into this light for use with a bow (or rifle) mounted application.

Disassembled the light this morning, and did some checking. No can do.

The mode switching of the light is circuit board controlled, so a simple battery connect/disconnect pressure switch is out of the question.

Oh well. I'll just switch it on/off with the factory button.

The clamp mount I made for the blind worked, but it was a pain in the butt.

Adapted the bow mount to a microphone stand.

Now I can set it in the blind, and position it anyway I need it.

And, it will unscrew from the stand, and screw right to the bow.
