For those of you who still hunt by light rather than by heat signature, what is your favorite, most powerful, small weapon mounted light for a rifle or shotgun? I have some old, down-level, Wicked Light and VRL-1 stuff that I use, but as my eyes grow older, it seems that they need more light than they used to! I rarely night hunt even out to 100 yards, so a good 200 yard light should work just fine for me.

I've used Elusive Wildlife stuff for years with great results. More expensive than the generic Chinese stuff that you get on Amazon but worth it in my opinion. My philosophy on hunting gear is simple: it *needs* to work when I'm out there, I don't get enough time to hunt as it is so when I'm out there, I can't afford gear failure because I bought some cheap stuff. My gun-mounted light is from when they were offering a 200-yard light as their top offer, now they have stuff claiming to be effective much longer than that. I'm not going to take a 200-yd shot at a hog at night, but at 100 yards it's very effective. Hope this helps!
