SneakyHunter Bootlamps: Taking Stealth to a New Level

SALMON, Idaho (Aug. 10, 2020) – SneakyHunter Bootlamps – essentially, headlamps for your feet – eliminate the problem of accidentally spooking game with a headlamp or flashlight, as well as inadvertently temporarily blinding your companions by accidentally shining your light in their eyes. They make navigating rocky, uneven backcountry trails safer and easier. The lights operate using three AAA batteries and have three settings – white, for general hiking; red or optional green, for hiking with a red or green light that will not spook big game animals; and violet, which illuminates a blood trail better than conventional lights.

Hands-free activation is done by simply pushing the button on top with your foot – one click for white, two clicks for red, three clicks for violet. The lid is rated as highly water resistant. The SneakyHunter Bootlamps attach to your boot via an easy-to-use 18-inch long, 1-inch wide elastic cinch strap. The hook and loop strap is placed under your instep, and the two prongs on the front of the unit are slipped under your boot laces, resulting in a slip-proof attachment. The unit is made so that when it is mounted in the proper position, the light will shine where you will be walking.

SneakyHunter Bootlamps are a unique invention, not a knockoff of a product already on the market. They were created after Jim Manroe -- a serious big game hunter who got hooked on his passion when his father took him for the first time at age 6 -- kept unintentionally spooking elk with his headlamp on the way into his favorite honey hole. “After I spent time reviewing my unsuccessful hunts,” Manroe said. “I realized there were missed opportunities from my headlamp illuminating the eyes of big game, or generally disturbing them with scattered light. I decided I had to figure a way to eliminate that problem.”

Made in the USA, the SneakyHunter Bootlamps hunter version is available at retailers nationwide and conveniently online at for a suggested retail price of $59.99 for a pair. They are available in green. To order yours now CLICK HERE.
