I know you can not use a battery powered pin in Colorado. Just was wondering if that included anything battery powered?

You can read the regs online...

Scroll down a bit and you'll see the individual brochures. I found the line below in the "index and information" brochure by doing a search for "electronic".

f. Scopes, electronic or battery-powered devices cannot be incorporated
into or attached to bow.


Looks like it covers anything electronic or batery operated that is attached to a bow. I guess you could argue that the nock is attached to the arrow, but that seems like a weak argument since the nock eventually has to be attached to the string.

I know they are not legal in Montana because the law reads you can't have anything lighted on your bow like on your bow site, but the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks said technically your arrow is hooked to your bow so they are illegal. I would look into it before using, besides at $10 a nock I can think of better ways to use my $$$. :D 2point
