OPAH, I thought that was the old verbiage. Sounded like the Commission approved a petition that would re-word the code. Wondered if bear season overlaps deer season what are the consequences of carrying a handgun along with a bear tag and deer tag. I could be off here and it wouldn't be the first time.

Devices commonly referred to as “sniperscopes”, night vision scopes or binoculars, or those utilizing infra-red, heat sensing or other non-visible spectrum light technology used for the purpose of visibly enhancing an animal or providing a visible point of aim directly on an animal are prohibited and may not be possessed while taking or attempting to take big game. Devices commonly referred to as laser rangefinders, “red-dot” scopes with self-illuminating reticles, and fiberoptic sights with self-illuminating sight or pins which do not throw, cast or project a visible light onto an animal are permitted.
