Is it legal to use night-vision or IR rifle scopes for coyotes in Idaho?

Answer

Yes. However, as infrared light scopes are a source of artificial light, the laws and rules of hunting with an artificial light apply. A permit to hunt predartory and unprotected wildlife with an artificial light on public lands is available at IDFG regional offices. To hunt on private land with an artificial light requires written permission from the landowner.
