I've called for years. Never at night. Could someone post how it's done?
I saw on another post where a guy has 10000 lumen lights. Do they get spooked by lights like hogs? I own a strong red light...I think it's 150lumen. Is that all I need?

Strong light with a amber or red color lense. I have killed just as many in early morning and late in the evening as I have trapesing around in the middle of the night just been my experience.

I use a very low powered red light for scanning and then a higher powered red shooting light. Actually all my shooting lights are reostat controlled so I choose how bright I need and they can also be used for scanning.
All colors will spook animals at night if not used properly just as all colors can be used successfully IF used correctly.
Red colored lenses help cover mistakes a little better or offer more forgiveness maybe a better way to put it.

Iím my experience I have not had luck at night. I have gotten them to come in a couple of times but when they do they are hauling butt and being in a box blind I I canít get a shot. I have the best luck mid day sitting in a tree stand in the woods.
