Thread: Blood tracking LED Torches?

    Blood tracking LED Torches?

    Has anyone tried using a blood tracking LED torch such as the Gerber Myth? Do they assist in spotting a blood trail at dusk or after dark, or are they no better than an ordinary torch?

    I have certainly found a standard LED light shows blood up well

    These ones from Maplin are fantastic. V bright, small, light and cheap.You can clip them on your front when working with both hands. Can spot blood well. I have a couple of them.

    I have found that the brightness of the LED is actually unhelpful to me. I can see blood spots best with my old 3 cell Maglight torch, that throws a more yellow(ish) light.
    However since my Labrador bitch has been trained, I locate the spot, mark it and then fetch her. If I thought it was a proper runner, then I would leave it until the morning before following up.

    Available in a variety of makes and colours. Light on batteries but heavy on stalking biscuits.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
