We have a blind that is pretty much a pig hole we use just for piggies that I have Elusive Wildlife lights on the feeder that work ok I guess but I’ve been frustrated not being able to see anything coming or going in any direction other than just at the feeder so I came up with a plan some might call overkill flag I’ve been rounding up parts for some time and I finally found the time to get it done. I purchased a 100w solar panel, a 29 series marine battery with a Midnite Brat solar charge controller and 3 automotive green floodlights. Being I thought they might be to bright I added an led dimmer to the larger light that will face the feeder and one for the smaller lights which will face down the creek and roadbed. I built it all on a board so all I have to do is mount the battery, solar panel, attach the board and plug it up, it shouldn’t take 20 minutes and there will be light clap Coons and pigs are going to get a butt whooping real soon...

That looks like it’ll do the trick! Post some night pics after you have it set up.

Here’s a portable, remote control version of what you have. I’d take this and set it on top of the feeder when I got to my spot. Also had a driveway alarm to let me know when they arrived.

That is cool. Are you going to be mounting it on the feeder? Or away from it, so light shines toward the feeder?
