Best Spotlights for Hunting, Fishing, and Hiking

Posted on

Night hunting isn’t a sport enough hunters take advantage of. Generally, we like to wake up in the dark—just about the crack of dawn—and then make our way out to the blind to wait out most of the day for our prey. But, similarly to night hiking, night hunting can be a lot of fun, with a whole different array of animals that are less available to hunt during the day. Likewise, some pests and varmint animals, coyotes for instance, are most active at night, so if you’re hoping to bag a troublesome mammal, hunting at night can be extremely effective.

If you’re a serious hunter, we know you’re serious about your tools. You know what kind of gun you like for which kind of animal and which ammunition is the most effective. When it comes to your spotlight, we know you’re no different. We at Q-Beam have a multitude of torches to consider for your hunting. 

Hikers and fishermen, rest assured, we haven’t forgot about you! In this article, we’re going to tackle not only the best spotlights for hunting but fishing and hiking as well.

For Hunters

First up, we’re going to look at the Q-Beam Performance Max Million III 1560 DC Spotlight.

We’ve written a lot about night hiking so suffice it to say we really love it! There are plenty of things to consider before going on a night hike, the most important being what kind of flashlight you’re going to bring with you.

For night hikes, we generally suggest using our Q-Beam performance 40 Headlamp and springing for the pack of three.
