Justin - First off, shooting a deer in the dark with the assistance of a light is likely poaching and illegal.

Second, the deer is still going to see the light no matter what color or wavelength it is.

Poaching is unethical and illegal!!

Gr8dane - Wow, did you really just put this in writing. the best thing i could advise you to do is contact your local dnr and take a hunters education class.

Gr8dane - as ethical hunters it is our responsiblity to know the rules, we need to mentor those that have not had the blessing to have had generations of family members pass this gift of hunting onto us.So victor know before you go cat. we are all intitled to a mistake. this one could be very costly if caught by a game wardon.

Derek - Check your hunting regulation for your state before listening to guys like this also Vic, some parts of some states allow the use of lights up until 11:00, dont berate the guy for asking, thats the only way he will learn.

gabe - Why when I point my flashlight at a deer it only looks at me but doesn't seem frightened off. I've heard and seen the term a "deer in the headlights", but why is it that they seem to be completely unconcerned but the slightest sound, and they take like, well, a deer?

jvWUtvx8 - This is pretty inrtteseing and I really wish I knew more about all of these things. As an older Boomer I feel left out of new developments sometimes, but I'm trying to get back into it so I appreciate the learning experience.
