Hey guys.  I am looking for some hog hunting light recommendations.  I have been invited to hunt a private field that should have great hog hunting opportunities.  This will be my very first hog hunt.  The owner is going to bait it for the next week and then I'll go in before dark one night.  Not surprisingly, he said that all of the action is from 30 minutes before dark to after dark.  I will be using my bolt action 30-06 with Leupold scope.  I would like to be able to hunt after dark.

I will be flying solo on this hunt, and this may be a one time invite, so I really don't want to spend more than $150 on lights.  I may eventually scale up if this becomes a regular thing, but I can't afford to shell out more right now if it's a one shot deal.  So since I'm flying solo, I'm thinking maybe a green light headlamp of some sort?  Or is a gun mounted light the way to go?  I have to be able to turn it on and off myself while still handling the gun.

I know that my budget limits my possibilities, but I'm looking for the least awkward, most dependable solution since I have never done this before.  Any recommendations on products that might fit the bill?  Appreciate it.

I have a gun mounted light similar to this one that works well. Aim it over them and bring it down slow, never had a problem spooking pigs with it.

Check out https://elusivewildlife.com They have all types of lights, gun mounted and feeder lights. I use the outfitter which has remote control. I also use the sportsman. Both have slo glo technology.

I have two of these and they work great.
They give you a great sight picture through a 3X9X40 or a 4X12X44 scope out to 150 yds.
Bought them on Amazon.
