I've used red light to shine deer before but never from a powerful spotlight, I mounted a outdoor light socket, like people stick in the ground to illuminate Christmas Decorations with flood lights, in a tree and put a red heat lamp bulb in it. Seemed to work ok, the bigger bucks wouldn't stick around too long but they didn't leave as fast as if I shined them with a white light. The red heat lamp seemed to work better than the painted red type Xmas flood lights. My neighbor uses this method all the time and always has deer in at night.
