Equipment setup for calling night and day?

Was wondering if any of you fellows would expound on the types of equipment/brand name that you're using for calling during day and at night with some specifics regarding night calling as to the type of lighting you've found that works good. I've seen some video showing a red type light being used and I'm wondering if a night vision type of scope would be best vs just the standard scope with no light.

Thanks!

I use a pvs 27 on top of my 260. No red light needed.

Re: Equipment setup for calling night and day?

Night vision is useless if it's not universal. You, your partner and your dog have to have it....

Don't use a light that's too bright. I use a half million white or a million candela red.

For the most part, night hunting is really good for educating coyotes. My buddies and I kill probably 95% of what we call in the daytime.... Maybe 40% at night.... Except cat and fox... They're easier. The 40% is just because I'm not stupid enough to shoot eyeballs in the dark at 200 yards. That's how accidents happen.

Sometimes we use a lightforce walkabout with a red filter.
I shoot a Krieger barreled 6 WOA during the day with a mark 4 PMR.
And a 17 hornet at night with a Leupold 6x42 German #4 reticle. If I don't have a headshot at night, I don't shoot. Period. Fixed power scopes transmit light better.

During contests I shoot a 243 day/223 night. 75 gr and 35 grain.

One gun man? 22-250 50 gr SOFT POINT Bonded bullet.... 10x scope.
One light? The walkabout!
