Is it legal to spotlight big game if no hunting equipment is in my vehicle?

It is legal to spotlight big game if no hunting equipment is in your vehicle. However, 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.

It is illegal to hunt big game with the aid of an artificial light or spotlight.

It is illegal to use any vehicle to pursue, concentrate, or harass wild animals or wild birds.

WDFW recommends hunters do not spotlight big game at any time.
