Thread: Photon and deer stalking during the day...

  1. #1

    Photon and deer stalking during the day...

    Now I apologise in advance if this has been covered but where do we stand legally on using a photon during the day for deer stalking.

    I have trawled the internet and the forums but no one seems to address the question.

    Now I know the easy thing to do is buy a second set of QR rings and just swap over but this is a question over the legality of using it during the day.

    No problem, the Law says up to an hour after sunset, and an hour before sunrise.

    not sure if that is correct the photon is digital and cannot be used on deer without a night ticket (I think )?

    The Burris unit isn't night vision but is digital. You saying it can't be used?

    sorry my fault can you see the deer with no batteries in the scope
    my understanding of the law is you must use natural light through glass
    the photon is a digital camera on the front of a scope I may be wrong
    cheers lister
    if you do not use a scope you use natural light

    Lister,

    I look forward to the Law catching up with the use of batteries in deer stalking
    Scopes will inevitably follow the way of camera optics, a CMOS device capturing the light and then presenting it in a processed manner.
    I'm not even aware of any thermal imager being illegal for use within the prescribed hours of daylight shooting of deer. May not be sporting but certainly not illegal.

    day night scope as it was sold to me , but what about scopes with digi range finders and bdc built in are they not to be used as digital (burris Eliminator III ! )
    scotcounty: can be used day or night.

    As i said don't take the pee one hr each way so not to be outside the law
