LED Light on my pins

5 posts in this topic

Quick question,I recently purchased a trophy ridge micro matrix sight for my bow, and at cabela's they sold me an led light that mounts above the sight and shines down on the fiberoptics to light the pins in low-light situations. It works great and extended my shooting time (practice at the range) by about 20 minutes last night. But I got to thinking and wanted to make sure, is a device like this legal? It is designed by trophy ridge and has a bracket for it on my sight, but I want to make sure it is legal to hunt with. Does anyone know? Thanks!

I see you're from MN- I assume you're hunting there too? As I recall, it's legal in only one of MN and ND, but I can't remember which one. I think it is legal in MN. Can someone confirm this?

As I recall, the language written by the state regarding this matter is fuzzy though...

Thanks for the reply, yeah I forgot to mention I am hunting in MN.

Okay, so I just called the DNR and they said as long as it doesn't project onto the animal (which it doesn't) then it is legal to use in Minnesota, so I am going to give it a go this weekend!

Another thought...

I heard somewhere through the grapevine that if you use an LED type or any type of light to brighten the pins on archery equipment and shoot a Pope and Young class animal that you cannot enter it into the books legally.

I guess this is would only be an issue if you are concerned with getting your name printed in the book.

Can anyone confirm if this is true?

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
