Choosing a hunting torch is no different from choosing a tactical torch. Both take high performance as the primary consideration. However, other functions are also important, especially when you want more successful hunting action, choosing the most suitable hunting light is worth the money.
First of all, a hunting torch requires the following features of a tactical torch:
🟢 Bright yet durable LED
🟢 Excellent projector or reflector
🟢 Daunting light output and brightness
🟢 Sophisticated circuit design and high capacity battery
🟢 Reassured runtime
🟢 Highest waterproof rating
🟢 Sturdy aluminum alloy body
🟢 Reliable temperature control system
🟢 Intuitive switch
🟢 Compact charger
Even if a hunting torch meets all the criteria we mentioned above, still is not enough.Because what we're about to share is more important.Hunting is an intensive outdoor activity, requiring multiple functions as well as night vision.Therefore, it's necessary for a qualified hunter to possess a whole set of hunting equipment.
🔶 Long Beam Distance To Reassure Ample Illumination
The brightness and output of a flashlight aren't just a number. It means the actual range of illumination a flashlight can provide. Only a hunting torch with a sufficient beam distance can guarantee a further view when needed. Usually, a beam distance of 1640 inches(about 500 metres) is more than enough for a normal hunt. But when you are shooting animals in an open field within a car, it takes at least 3200 inches (about 1000 metres) of beam distance.
🔶 White Light Is For Illumination, While RGB LED Is Specifically Made For Hunting
A hunting torch usually emits a cool white light, which is great for nighttime illumination or self-defense.
However, if the targets were animals, white light would distract the hunter. That's when you need to shift the light into red, green or blue.
🔶 Red Light For Aiming And Location (Mounted On A Shotgun)
When going hunting at night, hunters often place the hunting torch under the shotgun for hands-free illumination. The red light emitted from the torch not only preserves the night vision but also makes sure animals won't be scared off. Also, going with the gun sight, the hunting torch is able to help aim at targets more precisely. By that, it greatly improves the chances of a successful hunt.
🔶 Green Light For Attracting Animals' Attention And Hiding
Normally, the wavelength of green light is narrow. So when animals see the green light, they turn to look straight at it rather than be spooked by it. Hunter will make use of this and further confuse the animals. That's why a hunting torch with green light is ideal for filtering. It can help hunters hide more discreetly. Also green light is a better option when you need to walk through the forest with a low-intensity light.
🔶 Blue Light Helps Discover The Animal's Blood
Do you know that people couldn't look directly at blue light? Because it will blur your eyes. However, blue light helps you discover the blood on the floor or leaves when you need to track an injured animal. Because of that, you can locate your target animals in no time.
Which Light Is Best For Hunting?
Deer can see the blue light, or even the ultraviolet light. But they are rather sensitive to white light and yellow light. The ideal hunting lights are red light and green light. The orange light will also do. That's because deer consider these colours as grey colour and won't be scared off by them.
While boar can identify the blue light, it's not easy for them to detect colours from either green or red spectrum. Though boars hardly notice red light or green lights, they will be attracted and then move towards the brighter areas. So, red light or green light can be used only to direct their movements. Hunters always use red light, as most animals won't identify this specific spectrum.

Typically, in addition to a hunting light, hunting enthusiasts also wear a headlamp, which can help you see more clearly in dim or dark lighting.
