Deer can see well at night and 4 of 5 times they will not spook from light (flashlights, headlights, spotlights, etc.) I'm not sure about the night vision goggles because I never had the opportunity to use them but it seems like a good idea. OH NO, I FORGOT THAT IT'S ILLEGAL, BAD IDEA, SORRY MAN.

ILLEGAL I DO THINK. it would stink to lose your bow and license for the year. along with whatever other equipment the warden decides to take.

most deer I come across are not spooky of lights they will stand there and stare at it for awhile first. We are allowed to shine deer here and they dont run away when shined upon.
