Just wondering how many members here have the Pro Hunter and would you share your experience with it? I'm waiting on mine to come in and am anxious to use it - unlike mosst who hunt hogs in open fields and areas, I hunt in the woods where sight is limited, so this small light should serve me well. It should allow me to use regular rifle scope and not night vision infrared scope. Hope so, lol.

You’ll like the pro hunter. It’s a small light, easy to pack, easy to set up. I walk a ways into the stands I hunt. I use mine with a 12volt feeder battery and a tripod. I set the light up on the tripod, and between me and the target area. I like mine to be set so that I’m behind the light and in the dark. That way the hogs can’t see me move.

If there are leaves and tree limbs between your light and the target area the light will light them up, and they will stand out. So be sure there aren’t leaves and limbs right up on the light. Also, use the tripod to elevate the light as much as possible.

You're going to like the light. When I bought my first about 10 years ago, it was the smallest one sold, I still use it.

makes sense. I had already thought of removing brush between light and feeder - have spots picked out already.

Troyo, I'm not sure if you ordered yet or no,, but,, I'm way backed up right now.
A lot of spring time stuff I have to do. Plant my SwitchGrass and trees for my annual habitat restoration project took weeks :o
Now, a special custom order is really getting the best of me too. HD cameras and custom FAR IR lights are not functioning as I would like for them too. Got to rework some of it.
I hope you're not caught up in this delay :think:

As u know i sent a check but made it out to Texasboars instead of you personally so i will have to resubmit another check when u return the first one. You had said 5-7 business days - if that has changed then i may just delay the order - please let me know - thanks

Got my Pro Hunter light in the mail, got it connected to the battery & it works. can't wait to get back down to the cabin to hog hunt this week. Will definitely cut brush between the light and feeder. My question is, what height should the light be placed at? I'm thinking of running a piece of wire thru the tripod mounting hole so i can just hang it on a bush or tree limb & not have to buy something else to mount it on and have to carry with me.

I use a tripod. It's pretty light weight. It's a full size aluminum tripod for camera's, and works pretty good, and can be set up ANYWHERE.

I bought a 20 foot aluminum pole and cut in half. I have 2 lights mounted up there and another on a tripod. The lights work better elevated but it is not required. I have shot a lot of hogs with the light 4-5 off the ground. Happy hunting.

I will be experimenting, lol. If 10' works better than 5', then in the wood where I hunt a 10' pole would be no problem. Cut one for each sstand location & simple attach the light to it & stick the pole in the soft mud. I have an aluminum fence rail at least 10' long that I could use if hunting an open area - thanks for the tip!!!

Question - im runnin my pro hunter off a duracell ultra 6V battery with a 12 amp hour rating - from fully charged the light starts fading after 3 hours - the duracell battery charger says its less than 25% and this is after 3 hours - is this normal? I recharge to 100% takes about 12 hours

I thought the lights needed between 12 and 24 volts, you are using 6?

Gary I think that I misunderstood Kevin's post - I said that I hunt 2-3 hours at a time & he said a 6V will do for that amount of time, and it will. I mis-took it to mean only a 6V was required. Lookin back others said a 12V would allow me to hunt several hours more. Lol i better go get a 12V battery!

I use 12 volt feeder batteries. I take two to camp. I’ll hunt with one, and keep the other charged for a spare. They are light weight. And easy to carry in a backpack. You can get them at most good sporting goods stores or feed stores. No worries about running out of juice for your hunt.

Yeah, the Version 6 BOWHUNTER and PROHUNTER can run as low as 4.5 volt.
So a 6 volt 12 AH battery should work just fine for 5 hours or so?
UMM
well,,
mathamtics here--
5 (volts) x 12 (Amp Hours) = 60 watt hours.. That's 6.6 hours of run time per the math.
You should get 4.5 or 5 hours minimum till that battery gets down to 4.5 volts.
