what light is everyone using? i currently have the streamlight tlr-hp mounted on my ar, it is really bright and i believe i can shoot 150-200 yards thru my scope.It doesnt have a wide spread beam its more of long distance is there a big difference in a green laser light vs my white light?

I have looked at those and a other company called hog lights. Is the green light better or brighter? Is it not as noticeable to the coyote or hog?

The green light is not as bright as a white light obviously, but it is enough to illuminate sufficiently out to about 250 yards with no problem. Mine also came with a red LED, but since I use a AimPoint red dot I don't use it. However, I can still see my red dot with the red LED bulb in.

As far as the green being more or less noticeable to the prey... I don't know. Once I spot one I start shooting before they have a chance to get away. One thing I really want to get is a light that mounts below your feeder timer box. It has a green LED, is solar powered and comes on at dusk and shuts off at dawn. The deer and hogs get used to it just like they do when the feeder goes off or a trail camera flash goes off. It is made by Elusive Wildlife. I think Selph Arms also makes one.

That sounds really neat I guess they could get used to it and come to the feeder while you are sitting in the stand

i have a laser genetics ND-3 but I live in south texas so I dont have to worry about cold function. They make a subzero model for cold climates. I like the laser better because the focused beam creates less peripheral shadows. I also have a green CREE Ultrafire I picked up off ebay for under $20 and it works as well as some of the $100+ lights.
