I generaly wear a headlamp with a red bulb, 2 blue bulbs and a white bulb with a selector swich. It runs on tripple A batteries wich I stock up on before every hunting or camping trip. I never use the white bulb, but I use the heck out of the red! It is alot easier on your eyes, and pupil recovery time seems signifigantly less. I find this important around dawn. Red doesnt seem to spook ducks off the water like the white or blue, and in elk camp the red doesnt seem to keep others in the wall tent awake if you wanna read. The blue light is kinda handy if your walkin out in Pitch black conditions, or for an edge for keeping your fingers, splitting kindeling at 3 am cause you forgot to dampen the stove.....
oops! But other than that we have a couple lanterns at camp, and one ''Royinidaho special'' shake up flashlight just cause theyre kinda neat. But the headlamp fits in your moccisons, or cott pouch, or sleeping bag pockett for the ''midnight urge'' when your bladder is screamin at you to get your butt outa bed NOW moments. Not to mention its alot easier NOT to wizz on your moccison when you dont have to fiddle with the ''Royinidaho special''. Besides you only need to shake one thing at a time
or confusion could set in, thus the wet moccison. I here Roy sometimes wizzes on his feet just to keep em warm tho, and uses a spruce bow backwards for....Well Im not sayin there wasnt a bear in Roys camp, but those noises couldve just as easily been Roy growling...I Wish I was that tough.....Sorry Roy, You left the door WIDE OPEN on your last post, and I couldnt refrain.
