I have noticed that an awful lot of sight lights are blue. I have a blue sight light and was showing it to a friend and he said deer can detect the blue light, but red ones they can't. Does the color of the sight light really matter and if so what is the best color?
Thanks

The advantage of Blue is the fact that it can illuminate your fiber optic sights in their natural color. You can't do that with a Red light.

I have tried both, and the red really discolors your pins. I use the blue when hunting and have never had a problem with deer seeing it. I leave mine light for the last hour of light and still don't have problems.

I use a Trophy Ridge sight and cover the open spaces with cloth camo tape. It works very well with that sight, but I’m not sure how it would on others. The light isn’t visible from the front, sides or bottom and from the rear I can barely see it. The light is concentrated on the fiber optics of the pins.
