Artificial light use for predator hunting in Minnesota
This is a proposal for the use of artificial light during night hours in the state of Minnesota to harvest predators. The law currently allows the use of artificial light with the use of a shotgun, but not with a rifle from January 1st to March 15th.
Better visibility of target / Verify targetMore ethical harvest of wild game
Ideas for regulation:
Must have hand/electronic call in possessionMust be at least 200 feet from roadCannot be affixed to any motor vehicle
Other states that legalize artificial light use.
South Dakota – Private ground onlyNebraska – On foot only
Possible Addition to rule.
Allow light use from January 1st to 1 day before archery opener. Lights not allowed from Archery opener to December 31st.
