Hogzilla Light Review Part 2

I posted a while ago about my first thoughts on the Hogzilla LED Flashlight that I had received and I have been waiting for the perfect time and perfect opportunity to review this light. Now the light set up that I received was a the Bow Hog. I haven't put it on my bow yet so I decided to put it on a gun. As I was looking at which gun I was going to put it on, my dad actually showed me his Ruger 10/22 that he decided to deck out with an x-ring barrel from Tactical Solutions. I thought that this was a perfect gun to throw the Hogzilla light on.

Mounting the light to barrel of the rifle was very simple and easy.  The clamp attaches to the barrel and the flashlight easily without any tools which makes attaching and removing it very easily. Here are some pictures of the flashlight attached

The Hogzilla comes with a pressure switch so you can press it down and it turns the light on momentarily so you don't have to have it on constantly. I love this feature because when you're out hunting coyotes in the dark, you won't give away your location by constantly having a light on.

Here are some tech specs:

  • Length: 6 inches
  • Weight with battery: 6.5 ounces
  • Material: T6061 aircraft grade aluminum
  • Battery: Rechargable 3.7 Volt Lithium Ion
  • Battery Life: 2-3 hours
  • Momentary Pressure Switch

I haven't been able to get out and hunt coyotes with this yet but just to give you an idea of what the light looks like we took some pictures with it around the house.

The fence post you can see in the picture is about 60-70 yards away. With the Hogzilla light it was very easy to see out to 200 yards with the scope.

The one thing I would suggest and it is a minor thing is some way to attach the pressure switch to your bow or gun. Like I said this is minor and I'm sure there are many people out there that would rig it up the way they want to anyway.

All things considered I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for an LED hunting light. It is very light weight and adding it to a bow would not be a major problem. My deer season ends mid December and then I will be putting this on my bow in hopes of shooting a coyote at night. Overall I was very pleased with this flashlight. If you hunt hogs, predators, or just are able to legally hunt at night this is a must have. It is very easy to attach to your weapon.
