Default Coyote Hunting

Been dead lately , anyone doing any good yote hunting . I have been getting out couple times a week . Havent been doing very good lately , but after getting all my lights for night hunting . Decided to give it a shot wednesday night for the first time . I can say the coyotes are moving alot more at night . Had a pack of them howling like crazy about 10pm , but couldnt get them to budge . So packed up and headed to a different farm and had one howling and barking at me real close , but couldnt see him . Aside from that had a few curious deer come in and a lonely skunk that was WAY TOO CLOSE for me . He was about 5 feet away sneaking up on me in a field . Not the kind of critter I want to make friends with at 2 am

texasdirectfeeders on ebay. i ordered the 250 kill light. in all fairness, when i ordered there was a message saying the lights were on back order. but the message also said he expected them in on the week of FEB 2nd.

Default Green light

I googled them, it looks good, hope it's as bright as it looks and you dropped less $$ than the other one.

It all depends on the person , some people skin them out and sell the fur and some people feed the other coyotes ........

After spending the last month researching and reviewing lights and other forums . I finally decided to buy the lights needed to hunt at night , didnt want to spend alot of money . Not real sure if it is for me , so I bought a light from the website gadgettown.com . They are located in New York , and they sell alot of good led torch lights . Wasnt real keen on spending alot of money on the xlr kill lights as I found out there are soooo many other lights out there comparable ( i say that lightly ) to the xlr . But I bought an Ultrafire uf-900 , rated at 900 lumens . This one does not have a red led in it though , just white . But after some more investigating I found an easy solution to making it red , go to a local Grainger store and pick up a container of Dykem . It is a red dye used by machinist , I then took out the clear lense in it and made a matching one with 1/16" lexan and then coated it with the Dykem . Both sides of the lexan got 5 coats , this stuff dries quick and is VERY PERMANENT. I then bought a Cree 5w headlamp on ebay from a seller in California . This headlamp came with 18650 batteries and a charger for 31.99 , the other light , batteries and charger was 44.00 . I was able to put this whole outfit together and also bought a mount for my light to go on my scope . All the places I bought from where free shipping and I was all set up for under 85.00 . Oh and the headlamp needed a lense and Dykem also , very easy and quick fix. Also all the places I ordered from got me my products within 5 days of ordering .

Got out wednesday night for the first time to try it all out and was very happy . The headlamp which is used for scanning will reach out 150 yds to light eyes up , but is not too bright as to spook the animal . But I could easily indentify critter out to 200yd with the flashlight mounted on my gun . Very pleased with the set up and it didnt break the bank .

Ezbite , let me know how you like the XLR 250 . Wanted to get one , but didnt want to spend the money right now . IF anyone wants the links to the places where I bought my set ups from let me know and I will post them .

I have been out during the daytime alot as of recently but going out at night is alot more fun and alot more productive . Gonna head back out at night soon as soon as the wind dies down in the next few days .

Below are the websites where I was able to buy all my lights and accessories for hunting at night for coyotes . Keep in mind these lights do not run on AA or AAA batteries . They run off a particular battery , it is a 18650 battery that is 3.7v versus a regular battery that is 1.5v. All these lights require these batteries and a charger for them . The headlamp I have came with all these items for one price . But when you buy certain lights from certain websites such as ebay , make sure the seller is not from hong kong or china . The shipping takes forever ,and you may as well forget about customer service if there is ever a problem . All the sights I am listing are all in the united states and offer fast , free shipping .

All these led lights are the same across the board as far a brand name . Alot of these lights are the same with different brand names on them . Everyone is selling many of the same lights with different brand names and logos on them and running the price of the product through the roof because of that . The below websites are the lights I have and they work great .

I was able to get out for the second night hunt using my lights and they worked great . Called in a pair of coyotes lastnight and was able to shoot one . It was bright enough to where I didnt have to use my headlamp to scan for eyes , I was physically able to see them coming through the field to me . But when they got close enough I turned the light on my gun on them . Yes they did run when the light came on , but I was still able to get one of them as she ran off . In general though a red light is the way to go , they will still spook if they blast them in the face at close distances , but sometimes it doesnt seem to bother them . I guess it depends on the coyote and how much of the beam you put on them .

1.http://www.gadgettown.com/UltraFire-...ch-T00391.html
2.http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...All-Categories
3.http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...t+scope+mounts
4.http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DYK...KW1?Pid=search

1. Flashlight
2. Headlamp
3. Scope mount for flashlight
4. Dykem to make lenses red on lights . I took 1/16" lexan and made lenses and then covered them with 5 coats front and back with the Dykem . It has worked great for me , some guys say the lights with a dedicated red led works better . Which is correct , but this same set up works good also . I saved alot of money doing it this way . Also keep in mind these lights have alot of spill and a halo is highly advised . What I found best for this is any plastic that can be rolled up to fit around the head of light and then zip tied on works best . Then I covered the plastic in camo duct tape. Doing this will make the beam tighter and more concentrated making it brighter at further distances . Hope all this helps . Will tear down my set up and take more detailed pics later in the week . In my pic below you can kinda see my set up for the light on my gun with the halo zip tied on .
