Default ND3 green laser light

Is anyone using the ND3 or the ND5 green laser light? I am reading up on them, and it looks great. They are telling me that with a good scope and a ND3 or 5 you can pick up a yote out to 200 yards. This peaks my interest. So if any of you can enlighten me I would like to hear some feedback.

In MN they are illegal. Special circumstances for using light during a night hunt and shotgun ONLY. Check on regs.

As I understand it they are only legal in Colorado on public land with game warden's written permission (limited time) or land owner's permission on private land. This is the same as a spot light.

A friend sampled one and was amazed at what he could see out to 200 yards.

I don't know if the game can see the laser light due to it's color. I do know coyotes can see a colored spotlight (red) if directly pointed at him. They just cannot recognize it if it is not directly pointing at them.

A few guys in New York have tried them and found that they won't work below about 32-33 degrees. When they get cold they shut down. Dont know much more than that. They did not have much luck with them. Manufacturer was contacted and said they have no problem with them and cold weather. Every one who I know who trid them had the same cold weather issue.

I'm interested in one also. One of my friends has seen one work and said he couldn't believe how well he could see with it. As far as the not working in colder weather supposedly has something to do with the green laser itself. The simple fix is to wrap the body with a hand warmer and your good. Not positive about all this. Sounds kind of like a pain but if it works that good could live with it and hand warmers are cheap. They have a new one out also called a nd3x50 that they say will go 500 yards(right conditions?). Sure would like to try one. If one of you guys get one I'd love to see a report on it.

if I pay $400-500 bucks for something I don't want to have to play with hand-warmers to keep it operating

From the product specialists i talked to at Cabelas regarding the cold weather issues with the ND3, Supposedly laser genetics is coming out with one that will operate in cold weather, is going to be called the sub zero or something along those lines.

I also have been doing some home work on this product. They are advertising a "sub zero" for cold weather operation. Seams like they have had enough issues and complaints with its cold weather operations and are trying to resolve with a newer more expensive model. NO WAY WILL I PAY 2-3 HUNDRED DOLLARS OR MORE FOR A LIGHT WITH DEFINITE ISSUES. I live in Northern Utah and its gets quite cold here! 30-35 degrees would be a warm day yote hunting! A that price No Thanks!
