    Thanks for the suggestions. The Zebra light is pretty interesting, the battery life is surprisingly short when its on high though.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    One thing I like about the Energizer lamps is they use AAA batteries and last a good while on high. Some others use the watch type and rechargeable batteries that I don’t care for.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    I was getting firewood at night. I needed more light, than a normal headlamp. (Very busy life, got to do, what I got to do.)
    I ended up buying a petzl neo. 750 lumens, 4 settings, this thing lights her up. If you really need to see, this head lamp works good. it is not super light. Good light, but you pay for it.

    I don't coon hunt any more so I'm not up on today's light technology but if I were you I'd go to a coon hunting/coonhound website and ask there. The coon hunters would be your best resource for "nite lite" type info. The UKC website would be a place to start.

    However it has numerous intensity settings from high down to a very low light that lasts for days. At least you have the high beam of when you need it. That just gives you options.

    I have a black diamond storm. I like it pretty well. Its a little hard remembering all the funcitons and button pushes that unlock those functions, but still a good lamp. Battery life is pretty good with decent lumens. I don't plan on switching anytime soon if that means anything.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    For the price, these Coast headlamps from Costco are the bees knees, 405 lumens with low, medium, and high settings. Twist the knob to zoom in if you so choose. The newest ones come with both a red and green light. The 2 pack is typically $20. I used to have the Rayovac or anything else cheap from places like Walmart and now own 4 of these.

    I like my Zebra lights. I have one red and one white. Light well made and as bright as you will ever need.
    DIY Public land Elk hunts are not for everyone but everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime. And for all those younger guys that say I don't have the time, I don't have the money, I'm out of shape or I don't have the experience to do a trip. I only have a few things to say. Take the time to make a experience, Save the money to make the trip, Get in shape so you will enjoy the hunt and the only way to get the experience is to go and make it happen. Hunt on Mark!!
