#155847 Spot-On Hunting Lights-official thread

Posted by kevind43 on 01 February 2014 - 10:54 PM

Thanks shawn,


Although there was a dismal lack of support from members here, it was not the deciding factor to shut things down. I was doing quite well with IR illuminators for nightvision and developing product lines for other retailers, doing repairs on almost every manufacturers lights. what it was, I found myself spending every spare minute focused on this business and neglecting the important things in life: my wife, my daughter, my regular full time job, and myself. I can walk away knowing that I had a positive influence on the night hunting community.

#147055 first grey of season called in

Posted by kevind43 on 26 October 2013 - 07:19 AM

Hello gang,


Our fox season started yesterday and I had a chance to get out for bit.  I called this spot 2 weeks ago for coyote.  A couple lone howls on the RED HAT HORN HOWLER fixed to the fr3db3ar lanyard and a grey fox showed up but no coyote.  Fast forward to last night, same spot, 2 AM, I started with a simple RED HAT mouse distress and at about three minute this grey popped out the woods at 100 yds. I swung the gun that direction, gun light already on, and kept calling.  It got to 70 yds and stopped, i settled the cross hairs between the eyes and squeezed the accutrigger on the savage putting .243 hole through his left eye.  I quickly scanned to my left and had two more sets of eyes bounding through the goldenrod at me.  I swung the gun 90 degree to my left and caught a glimpse of two red fox which quickly disappeard in the tall grass, kept calling and they did reappear but never provided a good shot.

Hello predatotalk members,


My name is Kevin DeVuyst, i live in western New York. I spend my free time enjoying family, friends and the great outdoors. Deer, turkey, and predator hunting have been my passions for many years.


A few years ago, with the availability of more modern hunting lights my interest in night hunting was energized. I bought a hunting light from one of the leading retailers and i loved it. Being the tinkerer that I am, I couldn't just leave it alone. I took it apart refitted it with a more up to date emitter and more powerful circuit.  This particular light was much, much brighter than before.  One of my hunting partners saw that my light was brighter than his light so i fixed his up too.  Fast forward to now. I have been building and selling custom hunting lights since last october and things are going well enough to become an advertiser here on


Please check out my website at 


It is a very basic homemade site, no bells and whistles, no fancy graphics, just my lights and some other information a hunter hunting at night might need.



For my first post I will be offering a special price on a modified zy-t620, I have four available.  They have RED emitters, one mode, high only. And put out about 28,000lux.  These lights have a very usable beam profile. A large hotspot and large spill.  The T-620 has a 63mm bezel, 9.5 in long, 1" dia battery tube, runs on 2x18650 batteries.  $100 shipped to the lower 48.(note:only flashlight is for sale, does not includes mounts, or any other accessories shown in photos)

compared to the better LED lights, the primos light lags behind by a significant margin in both function and durability.
