Are lighted knocks legal?

I was told that lighted knocks are not legal, I don't think I was told right since lighted knocks don't aid in hunting only in the retreiveal of game and of course would cut down on wounded animals not being found and going off to die without ever being retreived.

Answer

Lighted knocks are not currently legal in Idaho.  There was a proposal made in 2011, but it was not approved by the Commission.  At this time there is no lighted knock proposal for consideration as a non-biological rule for 2012.
