Over the years I’ve had several battery powered tracking lights. None were very good, and a big part of the problem is battery life. Recently I bought a small portable work light for the travel trailer. It’s a rechargeable Milwaukee 12 volt with a lithium battery. It puts out a lot of light for a long time, and you can pack an extra battery or two in your pocket or bag. I had reason to use it recently, hoping it would work for tracking, and it was great. Get the larger flat bottomed battery, so it’ll stand upright.

In the past I have read that the old Coleman lanterns were the best for blood trailing at night.

This is what we always used. Puts out a very bright white light.

UV Light/black light like they use to find freon leaks in a car. Makes those blood drops stick out at night.


If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

I cannot remember (Coleman lantern) why it is the better light, but it has to do with the color of light it puts out at night.

From what I remember it is a great help for those folks who are red/green color blind, which I am.

The light is supposed to help with picking up the dried sheen from blood.
