When searching for wounded game and doing a game inventory, good light is a prerequisite for safe, secure and efficient hunt. An injured wild boar is not to be trifled with and it is important to be able to rely on your equipment and that your lamp provides light where needed. With LEDX headlamps, you get an optimal light spread with light starting at your feet and reaching as far as you need in all directions. Due to the high mounting the light does not reflect in optics or silencers and you do not need to redirect the lamp when shooting due to the wide light spread. Many searchers who get in touch with to us say they never want to use any lamps other than LEDX after using them. We consider that a very good rating.
The most common lamp for this is Cobra with optimal width, yet very long light beam. If you want a lighter option, Mamba is a good choice with almost as good focal light but with a shorter range.
The season is in full swing as a wildlife management hunter, just as the dog hunt approaches swiftly. The nights are long and the sleeping hours are few, hunting in fields places incredibly high demands on the hunter himself and, not least, its equipment.
During all nightly wounded game searches and stealth hunting in grainfields, I use LEDX Cobra ll. An incredibly well-functioning headlight that meets the extremely high demands of the watchmen of the night. The advantage of LEDX, in addition to its incredible brightness and extremely light weight, is the combination of different light spreads. I have both a long and wide light image which, in my business, is a big positive!
The wide but still very sharp light image makes blood visible very easily. A shooting site investigation becomes considerably easier.
It was 03.32, the mobile phone rang, I'm called in for a search. The owner of the neighboring field of our field had shot a big pig but it had escaped onto our field. The person in question had no dog, and asked for my help ..
Once there, the man tells his story of where and how he shot the pig, he had thought the shot felt good and was a little surprised that the wild boar had managed to run away. I go back to the car, put on my LEDX headlight, put on the dog's neck strap, load the rifle and proceed down to the shooting area.
There I find plenty of blood, I track with the dog about 40m before I decide to let go: the dog rushes away, 130m farther away, he starts barking and I hear a rough deep bark echoing in the quiet forest.
This is a sign that the dog has found a dead animal, otherwise my dog will react with much lighter barks and more energetic. We start to approaching the place where my dog is barking, it’s a dense pine plantation. Clear signs of blood all the way to the wild boar and on place, very far inside, it is a boar of 147kg.
A nice trophy to the shooter, which also proved to be his first pig. A good finish with good work by the dog. Without my LEDX, we also would not have found the shooter's lost phone with no battery left!
