Buy the headlamps that have a red, green or blue mode, which will protect your night vision while hiking in the dark and these modes are less likely to alert big game animals. The special feature of any headlamps for hunting is an identifiable eye reflection range over a wide area. When the beam of your headlamp falls on to the eye lens of any animal in front of you, you can at once identify your prey and attack it.
When buying headlamp for hunting make sure that the beam pattern of the light is smooth and the beam provides you with clear visibility of the trail.

- Battery Life:
Choose the headlamp for hunting that is powered by three or four AA or AAA batteries. Remember if you want a very powerful headlamp with heavy batteries, the design should be comfortable to use. The light emitter must be placed at the front of the head and the battery compartment must be positioned at the rear of the head. The headlamps with detachable battery compartment are preferable as they are easy to store in a belt or a pocket.
- Easy to use:
Buy the headlamps with different lighting modes, at least four lighting modes: energy saving mode, medium brightness mode, super brightness mode and an additional flashing strobe mode. Simply click a single button and you can get your required amount of illumination. Choose the Headlamp that has simple multi-scene use, easy to recharge/ replace batteries and comfortable headband. Choose the headlamps with overcharge and discharge resistant function. The runtime of your headlamp should be more than sixty hours.

Buy the headlamps for hunting that have low-level battery indicator visible in the face cap of each light. Red LED must flashes when the battery voltage is low and batteries are near the end of their usable life. LED must be located in the reflector in between the low battery marking and functions when the light is ON. Always select from the variety of headlamps for hunting that prevents neck fatigue.
Buy the headlamps with LEDs due to their small size. Select the headlamps with LEDs, because they have low power consumption and an improved durability as compared with conventional incandescent bulbs. Buy the headlamps with user replaceable LEDs, to be able to switch LED colour in seconds. Removable LEDs are always preferable as it allows to tailor and use the LED colour to particular hunting situations. It enables you to turn the light “ON” directly at any particular setting depending upon your preference.
