On Saturday i took a shot at a doe, she jumped just as i released causing the arrow to miss the kill mark. I hit her in the rear quarter. I tracked her for hours trying to either find her dead or to get another shot. Neither happened! While i was blood tracking, i came across another hunter that asked me if i was using a red light to find blood. I had no idea what he was talking about. Is this a technique i should practice or is he crazy? And what does the red light do? Does the red light work during daylight? I'm just sick that i left a wounded animal out there, but i know that i did everything that i know how to do. If this is a good technique, i would really appreciate knowing more about it. Can anyone shed more light on this for me?

they say it helps but I have a red light and it didn't make any difference as far as I could tell.

I have heard of this, but what I heard was that it has to be a mix of red and green light. Primos has a light that does that and when you shine it on blood it supposeidly makes the blood show up more vibrant against the ground.

I haven't heard of anyone who uses it but I was wanting to get my dad one for christmas since he has trouble seeing late evening and night

If I get one it will be the Primos BloodHunter Rechargeable Blood Hunter Trailing Spotlight

Red Light - for when you need a small area light that does not spook game and allows you to retain your night vision.

Green Light - for when you need a walking light that does not spook game animals and allows you to retain your night vision.

BLOODHUNTER Light - uses a patent pending technology that filters red and green light together to produce a light output that enhances the color red, making blood stand out.

I think your right on the night thing. The light is susposed to highlight blood to see it easier. Never used one though. We have three seasoned trackers if needed.

blood light

Gerber came out with a blood light several years ago. It is a mixture of colors and also has a flashlight combo. It does not do much in the day but at night if the blood is not real dry it really highlights it and makes it stand out more, at least to me. I have trouble with blood on different color leaves and sticks and stuff but with the light it does help. I have never tried the primos light but it has more l e ds directed to do the same thing that my gerber light does. The gerber light is about 50 bucks.
