a hunting flashlight--a important device for your hunt

There are many types of hunting lights available on the market that you can choose from. The most common and widely used among these is the hunting flashlight. It is very handy and easy to use but good enough to illuminate an entire room. For hunters who love to go hunting, hunting flashlights are the perfect option for them. There are those which are rechargeable and those that can provide light without the use of batteries. These gadgets are very convenient to use and easy to store. For some experienced hunters, they think that the best hunting flashlight that is available on the market is the xeccon hunting flashlight. This brand of flashlight is durable and of good quality. It is also waterproof so it can also be used even if it rains.

A flashlight can really come in handy especially while at hunting. It can be used to light your way if you need to get something outside during night time. Aside from that, it could also be used in playing games at your hunting site. If your lanterns or lamps run out of light, flashlights can be the perfect replacement to help you see in the dark. These devices are one of the best sources of light when you are out in the wilderness. If you are planning to purchase a camping flashlight for your trip, choose the type that is portable so that you can carry it in your pocket wherever you go. It is also highly suggested that you get one which has the ability to last long. There are now LED flashlights available in the market and they can last up to 100,000 hours! That is so unbelievable, but it’s true! For a more comfortable and safe hunting trip, never forget to bring a flashlight with you.

Well this looks more like a

Well this looks more like a good tip than a topic but I have to agree that a good flashlight is a needed item in any hunting pack. I use an LED model head lamp from Cabelas. It last the whole season no matter how much I use due to the different settings and is extremely bright when a lot of light is needed. I prefer the headlamp if only taking one as its a lot easier to work on an animal that way or it keeps your hands free when packing out in the dark adn needing to keep your balance.

Fully agrre and never go to

Fully agrre and never go to hunting camp, fishing or camping without at least two and one in the vehicle. You never know when you will need one for hanging game, getting back to camp or problems with a vehicle.

Yes, u are right.  It is very useful when we go for outdoor activities. but if you choose to buy the flashlight, what brand you prefer? Or you want to buy a flashight with good quality and cheap price, no matter what brand the flashlight is.  what is your requirement to the flashight. For example, how many lumens do you want?

Processed, I like the 2

Processed, I like the 2 D-cell Mag lights for in camp and in my vehicle. The 3 cell or bigger just get to be too big IMO. The Mag light gives off a very good amount of light, batteries life is good, and they are fair priced at about $30.They will also take some abuse of being dropped, rained on, etc. I also like that the light can be "focused" into a wide or narrow beam of light. In my butt pack I carry a 2 AA-cell Mag light for walking in or out when it is dark. I do have a head lamp set up too (not sure of brand) but do not like wearing it but that is me. As for those cheap dollar store flashlights I would not waste the money on them. I am a big believer in buying quality that will last a long time. Remember quality does not mean the most expensive. Hope that answers your questions and helps you out.

I absolutely agree that having light with you is essentail.

I absolutely agree that having some sort of light with you while you hunt is essential.  Most of us move through the half light (or full darkness!) of predawn adn dusk when hunting.  Game animals do not carry flashlights!  Having one lit could save your life if you walk across public access hunting land where you just don't know if everyone is hunting safely.  I always use a light to walk in and out in those situations even if teh light is small.   I routinely wear one of the ball caps with a couple of those LED lights that you recommend built in.  This is far more effective for me than trying to remember to pack a flashlight and check the batteries.  The ball cap lighst are always with me and ready to use.  They are a whole lot better than not having any light at all when it is dark.  The beam is limited to a couple of yards and rapidly loses intensity but it is more than enough light to safely walk by and a hands free method of lighting your work area if you have to finish field dressing game or manipulate keys and locks in the dark. Good reminder!  Thumbs up
