LED Light on my pins

Recommended Posts

WallyGator12000

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...

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?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
