Cheap long range thrower that could be useful for spotting big foot!

In my experience using a thrower to look for something that you do not know where it exactly is, not such an easy task, especially when it moves, or camouflaged, you need a flood so you can spot something that looks out of place, then you use a throwed to light it up and inspect "closer"

Same reason lookouts on ships do not use binoculars, they fan the sea with naked eyes, and if they spot something odd, they use binoculars for a closer look, it is hard to spot something with a limited field of view.
I plan on having a nice set of NVGs and thermals before the end of the year.

This is the correct answer, no matter the flashlight question.

Buy 2.

If a person has a fairly thick spread of trees with lower branches clear enough to see through, a flood will splash light back from all the nearby branches, trunks and leaves, obscuring what is beyond. A thrower (not too tight) will see past all those branches. Try it.

Maybe it is a good time to remind that our eyes actually catch bits and pieces, with our brains smoothing out the perceived images based on our experience of perception. We see patterns and interpret, as opposed to actually always seeing what is really there.

But if you smell super stinky Bigfoot, exercise caution… Could be something unaccountable with mass mindset beliefs.

A billion or so phones with good cameras in nearly everyones pockets and still no credible pictures.
Everyone is too self-centered to notice.
They're busy taking selfies.
Can't take pics. of the good $#%& when the camera is pointed at yourself.
