Green LED Bow Light with Picatinny Rail Mount

 

Green LED Bow Light with Picatinny Rail Mount
by Brad Fenson

I’ve often stumbled down a trail through the forest, trying to be as quiet as possible, when exiting or entering my stand or blind location. Being able to see where you are going is critical to staying silent, and more importantly, ending up in the right place. Regular headlamps and flashlights produce bright, white light, which can spook wildlife. Here are some options to minimize your impact and presence on game.

Green or red lights are not alarming to wildlife as they see them differently than a bright, white light. There are more and more options being offered all the time for game-friendly lights and bowhunters can now attach a powerful LED directly to their bow.

TG85BLG_Group-300x209
TRUGLO® recently came out with a Green LED Bow Light with Picatinny rail mount.  The light has been specifically designed for bow hunters and offers a 520 nanometer green LED with high and low settings. The light can be powered to the brightest setting when searching for something or dimmed to keep you in stealth or scan mode. The settings offer 180 lumens on “Bright” and 25 lumens on “Low”. The power of the CREE LED is impressive, with a beam distance of 160 meters, which allows hunters to use the light to search a large area.

Having the light mount to your bow provides several benefits, including handsfree use. You simply carry your bow TG85BLG_BowC_L-300x300and use it to guide the way. The on/off switch on the light is easy to operate. But, there is also a pressure switch on a cord that runs from the light to the riser that can also be used to turn the light off and on with your hand holding the bow.
If you’re into hunting hogs or predators at night, this LED will allow you to illuminate your quarry when you come to full draw, so you can maintain the element of surprise by seeing your target more clearly. If you’re into bow fishing or chasing alligators, the bright LED light will be a definite advantage for seeing below the surface of the water after the sun sets. And, of course the light is waterproof!  And the Picatinny rail can be used for any other add-on accessory that is designed to fit the rail system, like small cameras or even range finders.

The TRUGLO Green LED Bow Light includes two CR123A batteries for a runtime of two hours on high or 18 hours on low. And the light TG85BLG_Angle_NoBolt_Beam-300x182automatically dims when the batteries reach 10%. There are a multitude of uses and advantages for purchasing this new light.  The biggest advantage is the ability to quickly and easily mount the light on the bow and align your powerful LED with your line-of-sight and the path of your arrow.
