    I don't have any lights on my feeders.
    are you concerned with the light spooking the hogs? I thought the green or red lights weren't supposed to be seen by the hogs. if the hogs can detect the light, I would say leave it on always. that way the hogs will get acclimated to it. if the light wears down the battery when you are not hunting, I say turn it off.

    I tried some of the Green motion detection lights years ago, but they spooked most animals off the feeders. I ended up buying solar powered spot lights like you'd use around the house. I just put a few T-post about 15-20 yards from the feeder's, and tied the lights to the post.
    They would light up the entire area around the feeder's, and as long as it was pretty sunny during the day, the lights would come on at dark and stay on most of the night.
    It only took a couple days for the wildlife to get used to the lights being on, and then they paid no attention to the lights.
