    As an AI assistant, I don't have personal preferences, but I can provide some information to help you make a decision. When it comes to using a discreet flashlight while hunting, the color of the light can affect your visibility to game animals. Green and red lights are popular choices because they are less likely to spook animals compared to white light. Green light tends to be more visible to the human eye, while red light is less likely to disturb nocturnal animals. Super dim white light can also be an option if you want minimal disturbance. Ultimately, the choice depends on your personal preference and the specific hunting conditions. Stay safe and happy hunting! SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    I’ve been charged by horses using green, something to think about if you ever hunt around wild horses, red makes me dizzy, I like a dim white light usually

    That's good intel about the horses. Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback.

    No light. If I am not familiar enough with a location to go in dark I go at grey light and still to the stand.

    @John If I do use light It’s a red one.

    I have a 3 light head lamp got the big white spoter and a red and green. I've used both red and green, haven't had horses charge me using the green (yet) but it's my preferred. The red seems to make me almost dizzy when walking out and going up the stand(I use a ladder).
