lighted arrow nocks

Why are lighted nocks illegal for use on big game in the state of Idaho I would think that it would make it better so u can see where or even if u hit the animal your hunting instead of people thinking they missed, but actually hit the animal and not being able to find there kill?

Answer

Lighted nocks are illegal because it is illegal to use a weapon with any electronic device attached to, or incorporated

on, the firearm or scope; except scopes containing battery powered or tritium lighted reticles are allowed.

 

The commission has considered changing the rule in the past, but they decided against it.
