If you’ve ever been hunting, you know how important it is to be able to see shaded areas and notice subtle movements. In addition, you need lighting devices that don’t interfere with your ability to concentrate on the task at hand. The type of lighting equipment you use depends on personal preference, but many hunters prefer hunting lights that can be placed on the head.

Hunters spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on rifles, scopes, decoys, and protective gear. With all the money they spend on equipment, many novice hunters and first-time hunters still forget to invest in proper lighting devices. Under no circumstances should you go hunting in low light if you don’t have a head light or another light source.

What to Look For in a Hunting Light

When shopping for a head light or a hat light, it’s important to look for one that is lightweight. If your hat light weighs more than a couple of ounces, you run the risk of experiencing neck strain and fatigue after just a couple of hours out in the woods. In addition, a lightweight light helps to ensure you have the highest possible range of motion.

Another thing to look for in a head light is stability. Investing in a light that slips or twists is never a good idea. A light that clips directly onto the brim of a baseball cap or hunting cap is ideal. You can also find a number of head lights that allow you to direct the bulbs toward the ground or toward a target in the distance for increased visibility.
