Default Game land hunting

I'm not sure what happened to the land that we've been hunting for a long time now. I don't know if we have been over bid or what. Anyway, my dad and I are having to hunt the NC Wildlife Game land. We have to set up our treestands each day we hunt and take them back down. We plan on buying a light weight treestand to be able to carry it. I was wondering what color lights deer don't notice or can't see? I was thinking about buying a flashlight that has a color bulb that they can't see. Do any of you guys use these or what do you suggest for someone that has to put their treestand up in the dark?

Deer care nothing about color. A lot of folks tend to use a green L.E.D but I use a white one and have walked right upon deer with it. Its a matter of prefferance really.

The red or green bulb will let you see what you need without being as severe or bright at the white bulbs. That is what I use and would recommend.

I use a green cap light and deer just stand there and stare at me.. As soon as I turned on my regular flashlight (white light) it bolted... Decision is yours though.. Good Luck

Where do you find the green and red flashlights?

What do deer do when they stand in the road at night, they stare at your lights. I have seen on the hunting shows lately that people are using green light but I don't know that white light is that big of problem either.

the green and/or red lights aid your night vision, most airplane instrument panels use red.
we have them at Cabelas, Bass Pro has 'em as should any sporting goods store.

Deer aren't usually negatively affected by lights at night. If they were, there would be no need for anti-shining laws.
