So this upcoming elk season is going to be my 2nd elk season and I am willing to learn anything and everything I can. I have been wondering this for a while and I haven't found an answer anywhere so I figured a forum would be best.

Does anyone have any thoughts on using your red light on your headlamp to help your 3/4am hikes a little easier into the back country? I don't know if this would be completely ridiculous or if it may actually work, so any thoughts are appreciated.
