gerber carnivore

I shelled out $50 for the new magical gerber blood seeing light. Arrowed a doe at dusk,and was very exictied to use this new spooky light. Bottom line... it's a joke. I found that my 60 lumen surefire showed much more visable blood than my new 'csi' wonderlight. When the blood trail thinned out and I was tracking blood spot by blood spot on my hands and knees, I would find a small spot with the surefire and then try to find it with the gerber, inches from my face and often could not. Save your money, this one's a fraud.

Re: gerber carnivore

Do you think this new Surefire Kroma would be any better ?
It has the option of the red or blue LEDs for tracking blood.

Re: gerber carnivore

RED

Being an old(very old) bow hunter I have tried every type
of light known to man and still use a single mantel coleman
lantern because it produces a yellow light that realy reflects off blood and covers a larger area
than a flashlight.

Most LED,s produce a bluish light that doesent reflect as
well as the lantern.

Although not as handy the lantern still works best for me.
and I cary a small spritzer bottle of hydrogen peroxide
to verify that some small spots are blood.(peroxide will
foam up when exposed to blood).

Hope this helps
