This is a poachers dream bill
I could see maybe allowing IR illuminators for night vision since its not even really visible to the naked eye but definitely not spot lights or spot lights with red or green lenses... Especially now that Ive already dropped the coin for a thermal scope dangit
Poachers dream is correct; But officer I'm just out coyote hunting
Good grief, why the heck can't we just leave things alone? It's not perfect, but it's pretty good.
Spotlighters Dream Bill!!!
The monster bucks of the night would not be safe

Get those emails sent!
Please send emails to the three listed above. It would be nice when I attend the sub committee tomorrow, that they hear from enough people that they stamp a big NO on it without saying a word.
More finger cramps but emails sent!!
The "stupid factor" of this group of legislators seems exceeding high!
Chris Cournoyer replied back in about 5 minutes. He agreed this was a bad bill!
Please send the emails
What do you guys thinks stops a poacher from spending 2-3 more grand and driving down the road at night scanning with a thermal ? An IR illuminator and night vision scope will run you $1000, cheap thermal is $2800. Just curious I guess , not supporting it either way. Im surprised thermal is legal, itd be wayyyyy more effective then spotlighting and way harder to get caught.
I have a thermal and it is very hard to see the antlers. A light would not be good, it would only assist on being able to identify the deer. I agree, it is a bad deal.
Email sent. Hope it helps.
Excellent, but you might want to click on this legislators' page link above.

Thanks for the email, Andrew. While I declined to support it, the bill was approved by the subcommittee this afternoon. That said, there was at least an acknowledgement that it would need to be amended significantly to address safety and poaching concerns related to the proposal as it is currently written.
Thanks again for letting me know your thoughts on this legislation.
