...but don't know exactly what I need for a good setup.
I have a spotlight, but not really sure this is what I need.
Since I am hunting alone, there is the problem of holding the light and taking the shot with a rifle,at the same time.
Do you need a light that constantly shines?
Or do you call for a while then spot?
I also know that I do need an amber or red lens.

I sometimes put a little sandbag on top of the light, and prop my gun on the little sandbag.

Most lights will work, but be cautious if using one that is too bright. And a red lens is helpful. Do a search on this forum, and there have been a few threads about using lights.
