Default Flashlight?

I'm completing my list of hunting needs. My search has now taking me to buying a flashlight. How many lumen do I need, what else should I look for in my purchase, are blood tracking lights worth it?

Forget the tracking light. Best blood tracking light is a lantern. A small pen light in either blue or red would be all you need to get to you blind/stand. You're better off just spending the time memorizing the way to said spot. Lights scare away deer. They don't forget that there is something strange in that area either.
