Ok im going to start by saying I'm not a poacher. I'm not going to use this on deer or turkeys or any game that can't legally be persued at night. I mostly just want to play with the bow after the sun goes down. My current idea is to use some existing quiver mount that I already have (kwikee and bohning laying around) and creating a picatinny rail that indexes the sight. Then i would just use some of the 1" tube weapons mounts out there for my ar15 I already have and a polytac Streamlight to save weight, but give exilent performance.

My other idea was to somehow make a mount from the stabalizer to hold the flashlight, but I realived this would be harder to turn on/off and the light would be mounted farther from the field of view.

here is the light I will be using because it is really light weight, awesome beam, and I have one laying around collecting dust.

i love that pollytac, its a hell of a light, the easyest thing i can think of that is easy free and functional and i have used it to shoot in the dark is simply rubberbanding the light to the stab with a few good heavy bands. $.20 and 2 minutes

I cut the ends off a cell phone car charger. wired one end to the light. the other end(the switch). The wires are stripped bare,wrapped tightly w aluminum foil with a piece of milk jug between the wires and taped together. The piece of jug keeps the wires apart until you press the pad.
