    Looking for recommendations - headlamps

    Anyone recommend a good headlamp for creeping in and out of the bush in the dark? Iím hunting blacktails on VI and I understand itís imperative to get in before first light or just before last light. This means Iím almost always entering or leaving the bush in the dark dark.

    I bought one I heard about on Amazon that was supposedly 18000 lumens but it lasted me two trips and now wonít hold a charge.

    I've always used petzl and black diamond. Had them for years and they still work great.

    Following this one. I got a 3 pack from Costco a few years ago of Coast headlamps. They have 3 brightness levels and a separate red light to keep your night vision. They are great other than the fact they eat through AAA batteries like crazy. I’d love to find something similar with a longer battery life.

    Milwaukee hardhat lite (fits great on ball caps too) is outstanding for the money,
    have used one at work for 2 years every day, 1 battery started to get weak, took to Lordco, free replacement within one year
