    PJ, so they are not afraid of the light when you leave it on the whole time?

    Having the light on isn't the issue. Having the the center of the beam cross over your targets eyes is the issue. I try to only use the halo until I am ready to shoot. And in NJ since we can only use shotguns st night you are better off with a flood type light when you are ready to shoot. I use a focusable head lamp when shotgunning. I may have a hand held scanning the field and when I think I have convinced the critter to close the gap I will shut it off and turn on the head lamp. I wear it kicked off to the left side of my head because when you shoulder your gun the light needs to be running down your bead. You can also use a gun mounted light with a shotgun but it gets tiring having to swing the damn gun around.

    I haven't seen it scare them out of a field unless they catch your wind. But Bmelvin is right, keep them in the halo and they will usually come in. I use a headlamp for scanning and while they are approaching. I have a shotgun mounted light with a pressure switch that gets turned on as soon as they are in range.

    I just got my predatorch light today, fast shipping is an understatement.

    Might be a stupid question but when scanning do you set the light all the way out as a flood or like in the middle somewhere?

    I like about a 3/4. Look at the outside edge of the halo.
    You want to keep a predators eyes in between the halo and center of beam on your kill gun.
    For scanning about half. Ill usually go right to my gunlight after catching eyes.

    Also I have one of these from my short lived vape days, will this work as a backup even though the mah is low and doesn't have the positive post?
