[quote=630353]I was surprised when I got the email. I knew that eventually they would come around to it, but never thought it would happen this soon. I think its a good move. All it does is help you recover your animal.[/quote]
... lighted nocks were never about 'fair chase', only about recovering game, plus the advantage of filming the flight of the arrow. P&Y gets distracted, loses focus, and endangers their mission to preserve fair chase by becoming irrelevant. Too much influence by TRAD archers who are more anti-change than pro-ethics. Interestingly, now Colorado Bowhunter Association (CBA), driven by 'good ol'boy' TRAD archers, is in a dilemma, and consequently, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, hugely influenced by CBA, is also hang fire on how to handle the latest P&Y change. Last time a game warden checked me he said if I had a lighted nock, even without a battery in it, I'd get cited because it was still an electronic device. I asked about a bowsight configured to accept a light but without the light installed ... he said it was electronic-cabable and he'd give me a warning, but a citation if the light housing was installed, even without a battery. ... Stupid is as Stupid does.
