Ive been using red but I think I'm going to start experimenting with a regular white light. Ive read a lot of articles lately about this and there are lots of guys running white lights especially the guys who film their hunts. It would be nice to be able to ID an animal further out than you can with a red filter.

I've used white light a lot more than red, never tried green. White light is good, just don't shine it directly on the animal.

RED. It might also depend on the light you use also. we use these 2 big heavy duty red flood lights on our feeders for hogs, an they are pretty bright we can see 50 yards or so real clear without a scope. an our cameras see the animals just fine.

I use a red light because that is what I could afford. My buddy just bought a $300 green light that is pretty intense. It definetly outshines mine but also cost 5 times as much. But from what I saw the green is very good.

I like my Lightforce with red filter. Something about seeing those red eyes, they glow better and the animal isn't disturbed with a direct beam on them.

White as long as it't not too bright.

I build LED lights and I use either green or green/red together.
The combination make a amber color that is bright and doesnt wash out like red or green by them selves. Animal seem to react to it like they do with straight green. I shoot mostly hogs but sometimes a yote,fox or bobcat will screw up. I know that hogs dont even know they are in the light unless it is moving around.
The red green combination realy hits on varmit eyes. I can pick out there eyes way past the visable light that I can see. As far a distance shooting you cant beat white. Most of my shooting is done around 100 yards so the colors work great for me.

If we our filming white light hands down! But the intensity has to be adjusted to the situation your hunting in. If we our just going out to have fun the red light works great. But I can promise you this just watch our teaser clip on hear if you don't think that the white light given the proper methods can work great and the shooter is able to identify the target better and their kill ratio goes up at least 30% using the white light. Trust me this has been beat to death on red, green, blue, white, yellow lens color and if your filming with a red light your footage is going to suffer no matter what. Plus the white light shows all the predators color so well like for instance a red fox or a big spotted cat you can see them way better under a white light. Then again that's just my 2 cents take it for what it's worth. Hope this helps Skinner

Green. Brighter than red and doesn't spook them like white.
