Who decided that a lit reticle is illegal on a bow or rifle?Wouldnt it be better if you were sure of your sight"s?I think this is a rediculous law.

Answer

The rules state that it is legal to use a battery powered or tritium lighted reticle on your weapon.  See page 76 of the 2012 Big Game rules book:

 

 It is unlawful to use any pursue big game animals with any electronic device attached to, or incorporated on, the firearm or scope; except scopes containing battery powered or tritium lighted reticles are allowed.
