Anyone have a suggestion for a hog light for feeders? Thermal scopes are little out of the budget....

Elusive Wildlife has some of the better ones on the market but their still expensive plastic lights but they work and you can kill pigs under them.

On Amazon, look for the better rated solar lights.

I'm not saying they're perfect, but, at low power, they'll stay on all or nearly all night.

I buy mine from Harbor freight and they work just fine. They sell a solar one for close to 20 bucks and they have the motion detector that lets you know if anything is moving around there by getting brighter. Been using them for years...

I've used this one for 5 years now. About $50. Still working and it sits under my feeder in the varmint cage year round. When I hunt,
I set it on bright light and motion detection. That way the lights only come on when something is under the feeder.

We put a few of these (green) out this past weekend and they lit up the feeder area pretty well. I put 2 of them about 15-20 yards in front of my feeder about 20-25 yards apart from each other and could see anything around the feeder without needing a scope.

I did a DIY light, way more light output and it runs the cellular game cam as well. 50W Panel, Old car battery, cheap solar controller to turn light on/off. I mounted a small green led flood on a piece of 1" conduit about 12ft up with set screws to adjust it from the ground. casts a nice even light without shadows.

Have less than $100 in it.

I have a slow glow and it is nice, love the remote and the light power is great, but sure not the cheapest option.

I bought 2 sets of two solar lights similar to this one on a big clearance sale. I will use a couple on the house and the other two for feeder hog lights. I plan to get some of that green headlight film to put on them, then simply mount them on an 8 ft landscape timber that I'll dig in near the feeder. Hope it works.
