Wicked Lights ScanPro IC ultimate head lamp kit

I received this as a early Christmas present from my wife and girls. I told my wife I wanted a scan light for when I go out calling instead of using my kill light on my rife. That gun gets heavy fast as you use that as your scan light as well. I had seen these in the past but was worried about the price, even though it's a middle of the road price when looking at night hunting lights. I wanted the 3 different led bulbs, so these light could have dual purposes, home, deer recovery, camping, and night hunting. Always help to justify to my wife how this is actually a cheap investment when you break down it's a multipurpose tool!!!

This was purchased on Ebay for $140.00
3 interchangeable LED bulbs Green, Red, and White
2 Lithium rechargeable batteries.
2 battery Charging cradle
110V Charging plug
Car port charging plug
Padded Case.
Adjustable zoom focus
Adjustable intensity knob, allows you to set intensity before turning it on.
Adjustable/Locking or free moving position knob.


So far out of the box, it feels very solid and well built. It is easy to use and makes scanning at night easy while keeping your hands free. I have only used it one night but so far it has been awesome to use. The ability use low intensity levels, does put strain on your eyes, and still gives you the ability to brightly light up the eyes out quite a distance.

I may have to check that out especially once my current headlamp craps out. It is getting to be about that age. How far of range do you think that you realistically get for seeing game well on bright? Like you could use binocs and be able to see if eyes are a yote or a deer?

You should be able to see the whole animal, not just the eyes. You can't just shoot at a set of eyes at night.

All kidding aside, using this light vs one mounted to the actual gun. To me the head light would be better because you could view more area with less movement? I’m a novice at best and have no kills under my belt spotlighting them.

In my opinion I would think it would be difficult to keep the head light on the animal when aiming through a scope. Almost seems like you would also need a weapon mounted light, could be wrong though. I don't have much experience hunting them at night.

Or two guys, one with the light, one with the weapon and then switch up...

That is usually what my son and I do. One of us carrys a shotgun and the other a rifle.

We are novices though and have only called in 1 yote and a couple gray foxes. We don't go out very much, but it is nice to do in Feb-March a couple of nights when cabin fever sets in.
I wish we had a good population of greys around here.

My buddy said he had a note lit up with his the other night 200yds and he could see every detail, it was a bang flop ! Now I didn't ask him if he had both lights on the yote or just the head lamp. ....I would be 200 yds or less would be game on!!! I am not comfortable shooting beyond 200 at night, so its more than adequate for me.

The head lamp is perfect for a shotgun! Wear it cocked eyed on your head and it shines right down the barrel, now with a rifle you need a mounted light.
