    Just out of curiosity, do they scarper under a red light straight away (red beam, not IR)? Or is it only white light that spooks them?
    Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch

    I have never hunted wild boar with a light but a dear friend, who have killed hundreds of boar with the light says under white light you have two seconds, under red three or four.
    I have studied something about and it depends mainly about them eyes sensitive and in the fact they associated easier the White light to a risk instead of a red light.

    At the range (high seat) you would be shooting at, any gen1 NV would do the job especially with the newer black light illuminators available.

    I think I'm right in saying that they use green light to great effect in Scandinavia.

    Other ideas? My starting idea was to find a big surefire a good price ad use it with a scope mount which is your opinion about this?

    There is a problem with the laser designators. They do not like cold weather or rain. It's like looking into a blur. I bought one and never use it for this reason.
