    Hey folks, I'm wanting to try my hand at varmint hunting at night. A friend has some farmland overrun with an array of critters. Anyway, what are some decently priced red led lights? I'll be shooting at 100 yards and less. Ive seen several expensive lights by EWT, wicked lights, and some others but I can't drop that kind of cash on a light. I'm hoping to spend around $50 and buy used if possible... Just new at this, and lookin for some direction.

    Lots of "sometimes" for me: I have a Q-beam with a red lens cover. I also use a Streamlight SL-20. At very close range, just a basic flashlight.

    To me, the key is to not put the light directly into a critter's face. Just pick up his eyes in the edge of the light. Doesn't upset them by blinding them. And I don't leave the light on full-time after I spot a critter. Just "blink" to stay aware of his location and direction of travel toward my call.
