I have one of these Q-beams. I tried the red lens on some deer in my front yard once. They practically broke their necks running away. Ran through my fence! I read somewhere they might think the red was the eyes of a predator. 3 million candle power of red light might have been a little much?

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.

Mine is the early version,but I haven't had the fading problems with it.A friend has one just like it,and his would completely disappear in the colder weather.He sent it in,and they replaced it.
I just saw they have the ND3 on clearance at Dunhams sporting goods for 259 or 279, 100 dollars off. Too bad it won't work in the cold
