At the lease last night for the first time with my new XLR250 clip on light from XtremePredator Products. The green light easily lit up my feeder at 149 yards and could still see trough the scope at around 200 yards. Had a yote come out around 100 yards, took a too quick shot, the muzzle blast in the scope was pretty dramatic! About 15 min later took out a coon at 80 yards over a pig pipe. Great product, now I'm hooked on night hunting!

Heed dfwroadkill's words....it's a sickness!
Flashlight first
Then handheld green light to scan and green light on gun to shoot.
Then cheap gen1 or digital hand scanner to spot and green light to shoot.
Then onto DigiSights and Photons and Xsights...OH MY!!!

Right about there you are really hooked and things start looking thermal.....
So I'm saving for thermal now but still dropping pigs with the N750 and Photon 5X!

Yep starts with a green light and ends with gen 3 and thermal. Thermal is pretty addicting.

Oh man, you are done for now! I don't even want to hunt during the day anymore. Lol

"Hello, my name is ccreyeder... And I am an addict..." Lol

Sigh .. I remember the good ol days when a little hit of green light would satisfy.


Just ribbing you.. Congrats and have fun!

Jonesing to get back out there but looks like rain all week and weekend at the lease. Wouldn't bother me too much except my area is probably under water and I would tear up the roads getting back there. Oh well, maybe next weekend.

I'll walk in ice, mud, sleet, rain, and huddle in 18 degree weather to hunt at night. Like a crack whore lookin' for the next fix......

It sure is fun though!
