I hunt jackrabbit in NEvada, where in some areas it is legal to use lights to hunt at night. In some areas where I hunt, jackrabbits tend to be out a lot more at night than during the day so I thought I might try night hunting. I didn't know how I'd do that, until I saw that there are some lights you can attach to a scope of a rifle. FOr instance Cabelas has "Nightblaster Scope LIghts" that are supposed to shine out to 100 or more yards. Has anyone used these? Do they work well?
I'd be putting one on a 22lr rifle.

I've often just held my SL-20 Streamlight against the forearm of my rifle. Any other good flashlight will work in the same fashion. The main thing to watch for is back-scatter light into the scope, which is prevented by a home-made cardboard tube out front. I've used the tube from a roll of paper towels or from toilet paper, and masking tape...

I have one and it works great. I'd suggest you also price it at MidwayUSA.

It's good to hear your Nightblaster worked for you. I may look into that more.
