    Lamp Colour

    Just after a quick bit of advice guys. Was just wondering if there is a particular colour of lamp/filter that has more success on the Rabbits or should i just stay on white light?

    Many thanks in advance

    I drill a hole in the middle of my filters it still gives you the colour but you get more range.

    I have used a clulite for over ten yrs with orange and red filters you can just push the filter to one side for a bit more light as its on a knuckle joint simples .

    Also depends on the power of the lamp / range of engagement.
    However, chuck a red filter onto it and the bunnies will only get momentarily disturbed...also works for Charlie.

    white light for longer range shots on open land.

    orange on closer shots both open land and edged with hedges or woodland.

    red filter for close range work or for spooky vermin.

    or leave early and have a session at last light from longer ranges etc. change the times and days you go out as they will soon remember when not to be about.

    I bought an in-line power adjuster and found by turning the power of the lamp down also helps, I use a red/orange filter too and try to ring the changes.
