    It's a dandy way to lose your guns as well as a pocket full of cash. I'm not going to go digging in the regs to find the words, but there's something in the general hunting regs about using artificial light.

    2007-2008 Hunting Regulation Booklet, Page 15 in General hunting restrictions. You may not take came by using a pit, fire, artificial light, laser sight, electronically enhanced night vision scope....

    So are bunnies the only thing you are interested in hunting at night. If its bunnies your after than no you cant spotlight them. If you are after other small game such as coyote,fox,lynx and you have a trapping license you may use a spotlight to take them at night but only during the dates and units listed in the trapping regulations.

    squirrels also count as furbearers
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
