Re: Looking for a small, bright flashlight for hunting

the 2 cell AA maglites with LED bulb are small and nice and bright. You can pick them up at Wallys or just about anywhere.

Yep,and the Mag small 2 cell AAA model has a pocket clip that works good on the brim of a hat.

Re: Looking for a small, bright flashlight for hunting

I can't recommend the Eagle-Tac line enough. If you don't want/need to consider a cr123 platform torch, there is a nice single AA model HERE:

http://www.eagletac.com/flashlights/p10a.html

The Eagle Tacs will all have runtime regulation circuitry and a two-mode output easily selected by turing the head of the light. Check them out. They rock.

Re: Looking for a small, bright flashlight for hun

I just sold my surefire, I had extremely poor battery life with it, plus the batteries cost a lot for it. I've been using the Cabelas Alaskan guide headlamp for years now, excellent battery life, plus very bright.

Re: Looking for a small, bright flashlight for hun

I bought a cheap Coleman LED light in the camping section at Wal-Mart........its bright as heck and I think it takes 3 AAA's
