Is it OK to spotlight deer if no hunting equipment is in my vehicle?
Yes. But if you have any firearms, archery equipment, or crossbows in your vehicle, whether or not they meet legal hunting requirements, you are considered to be hunting and could receive a citation and be arrested.
It is illegal to use any vehicle to pursue, concentrate, or harass wild animals or wild birds.
It is recommended that hunters not spotlight big game at any time. If you do so, you may be contacted by a Fish and Wildlife Officer.
