What is a good flashlight to use when entering or leaving the woods? Handheld or head mount?

Just looking for some ideas so that I don't possibly spook the deer.
Thanks.

Those LED lights that you snap on your hat are pretty good , the light is really soft and wont spook deer as much as a regular flashlight.

I use a regular mini mag flashlight and do not try to cover it or anything.
Lights will not spook deer, they will actually become curious about them, and if shined at them, entranced like a deer in the headlights.
I have tried to test this out for myself over the last 6 or 7 years and found I bump, jump, and spook less deer when using a light vs not.

I plan to try out a head mounted LED for heads free while climbing.
