OKAY, FOR YOU FOLKS THAT CAN HUNT COYOTES AT NIGHT, WHAT IN YOUR OPINION IS THE BEST SPOTLIGHT MADE FOR DOING SO?GUESS I SHOULD MAKE MYSELF A LITTLE MORE CLEAR, NOT ONE THAT ATTACHES TO YOUR RIFLE.

ill post here also. Right now my favorite is the sniper hawg lights destroyer. But like I said this MY favorite the light has to work with your style hunting and everyone has a light that works good for their needs. Do some research and see what you think will work best for your needs

I use a Nite-Lite Hot Lite Pro. Its like a coon hunters light with a red filter attached to a soft cap (or hardhat if you prefer) keeps your hands free and shines wherever you look. Just got the destroyer gun light and have great expectations for it. The Coleman Led flashlights mentioned on another thread are great little lights for the money also. Depends on your needs as far as range, brightness etc.

The best spotlights are those made by Lightforce or Magnalight.

I have cycled through a bunch of lights. Attempting this or that, and I keep coming back to a Lightforce of one type or the other. I have refined the Lightforce products down to using the Lightforce 140 Lance with a Boondocker Silent Hood, it is pistol grip hand held. The beam spreads open enough to be a great scanning light(red filter), it is way more than enough intensity and has plenty of reach. Battery and rheostat pack over the shoulder bag. Smaller than their 170, so it is not as cumbersome. The 170 is great for Texas Highchair hunting, where it is fixed/attached, but here we have to carry everything around by hand, no highchairs allowed.

Just my opinion

I'm using a Cyclops right now that has proven to be superior to the Brinkmann lights I've used in the past.

We have used just about every light out the and the one that by far beats the rest has been the magnalight spot flood combo. If you prefer a filtered light, they make a light that has a built in red lense that doesnt require taping a pop on filter to the light which is very convienent. http://www.magnalight.com/pc-46717-64-5-...lood-combo.aspx

I've had my share of lights,too! A new Destroyer in red just arrived, and I think it will be useful for certain applications. For sheer volume and distance, Lightforce and Magnalights have it hands down in their price range! I've been using a Smartlight for scanning for the past year, instead of the LF Walkabout, just because it keeps my hands free, and saves about seven pounds of walkaround weight. I won't sell the Lightforce Walkabout though! I still use it some, for long range spotting.
It boils down to your style of hunting and your terrain and distances. If you go with the LF or Magnalight, buy a halo shield from Boondock Outdoors for it.....you won't be sorry!

I reccommend lightforce or magnalight for any rifle work.
Smartlight,Destroyer or killlight for shotgun hunting.

I start with a old Q-Beam light. Remove the Q-Beam bulb and switch for they don't last very long due to the high heat.
I replace the wireing as well. I use HD A/C light core for the new wireing put in a new HD switch a long with the 4537 bulb. Place a coffe can over the end of the light. And use a Q-Beam red filter and We found over the years that the A/C plugs and wall shockits work the best they don't burn up or come unpluged. There we're done. You have a light that will last for a very long time. Hope this helps,any question just ask.
