BLUE EYES on the lamp ?

Recommended Posts

Werewolf!

Any thing can shine blue if seen at the right (or Wrong) angle  But deer and live stock, cattle, sheep, horses etc often shine blue or greeny blue.

Have you considered using red light for lamping - it usually spooks quarry less than white light.

I use an amber filter normally, I didn't have a filter as it was my headlight which I had on , it was only 40 odd yards away. I had put my gun away and was simply locking things up. I have never seen a fox with white eyes or a cat ever. I'm certainly not colour blind or daft. But thanks for all your help.

Modern LED headlights can cause things to have a blue-ish tinge to them.  Google 'Colour Rendering Index LED' if you want to fall down a rabbit warren....

But, as has been said, young cat.  Not seen it on a young fox myself but then I'm not a foxer (other than occasionally humping Bumpy22's gear around), thought they were mainly orange.

Foxhunter1 could you make something out at 40 yards in cover using just a small headlight ?

If you could not make it out apart from colour of eyes I would definitely say it was a cat. If coming back blue. Only from what I have seen though in the past

Not sure as I wasn't there but would have investigated and found out. If it was just sat in cover looking at you and not running off probably a cat....
