    I don't have a headlamp and realized last rifle season while tracking a deer through knee high water that I need to invest in one.

    I've Googled some things already but would like suggestions here. Looking for something with multi color functionality for getting to/from the stand as well as a bright white light for tracking.

    Let me know what you have!

    Cabelas has a green and regular light for $50. I'm gonna buy if it goes on sale sometime soon. It was the best I found for the price with a green light. They also have a better brighter version for $90. Tons of good reviews on both. Let me know if u find another good option.

    The green is a very faint light 2 use getting 2 and from stands when I go 2 a new area. I norm don't use a lite 2 and from stand but sometimes could use one. It comes with reg led lights for tracking

    I use green also going to and from my stands. Doesn't scare animals like a white light. Nothing beats a white light for tracking blood. I have my white light in my backpack. Just didn't want anyone to think they could use green for tracking.
