big game

If a resident is totally and permanently disabled, unable to walk much, can they use a motorized vehicle such as a ATV to get to hunting area?

I am a new Idaho resident, about 6 months now. I am totally and permanently disabled as I have a degenerative spinal disease and I am unable to walk very far. In California, if a person was totally and permanently disabled with documentation from their doctor, we could use an ATV to get to hunting or fishing areas, even if areas were a non-motorized area.
They allowed this under Federal ADA mandatory rules for allowing access to recreational areas for the disabled.

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?
