    Default illuminated reticle illegal???

    so, having a discussion with a coworker, we are both unsure about the legality of using a red dot or illuminated reticle sight on hunting arms in alaska. I think it would be legal as long as there is no light cast directly on the target as in a laser sight, but I am not sure. Anybody out there know one way or another what the deal is? thanks

    This has been officialy answered on the Ask a Trooper forum.
    Yes they are legal as long as it does not project from it.

    Depends on the definition of hunting arms?

    Generally ok ... however, there are exceptions. Examples that come to mind include hunts with weapons restrictions such as muzzleloader, archery, etc.

    And be wary of the fine print ....

    For example - from page 20 of the 2011-2012 and pg 20 of the 2012-2013 Hunting regs...
    "You MAY NOT use a muzzleloader:
    For big game UNLESS it is a shoulder mounted long gun and is at least .45 caliber or larger with a barrel that is either rifled or smooth bore and discharges a single projectile.
    equipped with a scope or using smokeless powder during any permitted, registered, or special season hunt for muzzleloader only."
