I have a Slo-Glow light on 1 feeder that is red or green and another on separate feeder that is either green or IR. Had them both for awhile and honestly I like them botth for different reasons. The IR light is really awesome and I use it when I'm shooting with my 350 Legend and the Wraith Mini......


Some people have such a toxic and rancid personality that even death doesn't want them!

[quote=Double Naught Spy]Looks like a nifty product and all, but similar lights were developed and sold for many years already, LOL.they

Yes, I agree that they are 'similar. However, my light is meant to shine down ON the hogs and not AT them. My light also fades up in brightness very slowly and does not SPOOK the pigs. My light can be put up in a new location and hunted that same night because the pigs don't see the feeder area lit up like a football stadium like other lights seem to do where it can take several days or weeks for them to get used to the new light. The only way hogs can see the source of illumination from my light is by looking UP, and hogs don't look up.This unique light and mounting system has been very well thought out. This .pdf will tell you more about it's function... instructions

Red and green will work, but our hogs seem to tolerate green best.

For a feeder light, I use a cheap Chinese made LED light. It puts out a white light and is powered by an attached small solar panel and automatically comes on after dark. I screwed the light’s mount to a PVC “T” and glued the “T” on the end of the longest PVC pole I could find at Home Depot. The pole is just large enough to fit over a T-Post. Drove the T-post into the ground about 6 feet away from the feeder and slipped the pole over the T-post. This rig has been up for 6 years and is still working. When it dies I will replace it with another cheap (less than $30) Chinese LED light. The hogs get used to the white color and both hogs and deer use the feeder at night.
