I've several headlights, thanks in large part to foundlings in my blind and fields, and there's probably a message in that. The ones I use are straight-forward and light weight. This one is EDC during hunting season: https://www.amazon.com/STREAMLIGHT-6142 ... id=3180291.

And this one's been my choice when more serious light is called for, be it frogging or hurricane: https://www.amazon.com/Boruit-Flashligh ... B012QHKI56

I was gifted a Boruit headlamp two years ago, from one of my brothers, when we were on an upper delta duck hunt. Had never really used one duck hunting, and realized how much I appreciated having both hands free when cutting blind material, and managing the decoys. I'd always considered them a PIA after hunting with friends, and having the damn thing shined in my face repeatedly :o

Do you deer hunt? I can't remember the model, but I have one with a red setting as you click through. Walk into the stand with the red on. Anything else, I use the white settings. It's my nicest one that I use most of the time if I remember it :oops:

I have a couple basic ones that all do the trick for most of what I do. However, I do want to pick up a bright one because sometimes I wish I had more light.

I have a cheap one somebody gave me that you can't adjust the angle of the light. I keep that in my blind bag as a spare. When I forget one of my better lights, I realize that I like to be able to adjust the angle.

I also always keep one in my glovebox and one in my wife's glovebox. I find they are handier than a hand held flashlight.

Eventually we will have a 250,000 lumen headlight.
With a glance you can set your hunting partners head ablaze. :lol:

^^^^ you dont have to wait. Just get a Fenix. Its like having a tiny Q-beam on ur head lol.

Other than the big 3" lights with the belt battery packs used for gator hunting, and the $8k surgeon's lamps, theres nothing brighter on the market. Im not even sure the surgeons lights are actually brighter.....

You completely missed it.
I'm "that guy" that will burn your face off with a headlight.
You sure I need the very brightest light?
Is a 120 watt light bar enough?

Yes, I am 100% sure I NEED that light. Besides, it has like 8 different settings w/ 2 beams + red. Its not like its uncontrollable....

I am an avid catfish night angler and this light just works, Ive also got a Baja Designs LP9 racebeam mounted on my boat.

I just figure its better to have enough light, than not enough.

Yes, I am definitely scared of hitting a tree/log running 30 mph down the river in the black of night. I also were a mustang self inflating PFD even though I am an excellent swimmer. Between gator hunting, deer hunting, and waterfowl hunting, a quality light is worth its weight in gold.

Do you drive at night without headlights??

No but I'm not running a rig with 4 light bars.
Ii run thru the woods in the elk chute.
You'd be lost in the woods off to the west of the trail like everyone. All over there lookin 4 gators an chit. :lol:

However: very small penis.
This ain't even a contest but continue big wally.

Prove your boat goes 30. Mine only does 20 until I go on the black River. 25 down stream...15 up.
That river is fast. Curvy as hell..

Well I was at the local auto store and saw this one on the shelf for eight dollars and figured what the heck I’d give it a try. Pretty cheap and it works well with my tenergy rechargeable batteries.

Price is right, especially given how many are lost afield.
