Ok so we have all shot deer we thought we made great shots on only to find out we did not hit where we thought we did. I know when i shoot a lighted nock i can see the arrow impact alot better and know exactly where i hit. Todays bows are so fast it hard to see the arrow fly and hit the deer especialy in low light. I think more deer would be recoverd if a law like this was passed. IE people would be able to know if it was a bad shot n to back out. I also know it would make the cost of the nocks sky rocket but lets stick to the subject lol whats everyones thoughts

I dont use them but I'm sure they would help, mostly in low light conditions.

I do fine without them and so do most other hunters! They are neat but not needed at all.

I really don't ever recall not knowing if I hit or missed a deer. Bore a hole through the spot that you intend to punch and hold your follow through and you should know what your arrow does. I honestly don't like adding the weight to the rear of my arrow because I run a little light on FOC to begin with.

I vote for no new laws please. Especially frivolous ones.

In my state, it's actually ILLEGAL to use illuminated nocks. I have no idea why though.

I tell you what... if I didn't have lighted nocks, I don't think I would have known exactly where my arrow hit last weekend. I liked knowing that I hit my deer a hair back, and knew I wanted to give her a little bit more time than if I heart shot her. With the speed of todays bows, any shot under 30yards is just a blur to try and see in low light. BUT I DON'T AGREE THEY SHOULD BE MANDITORY... I just agree with the use of them!

Sorry but a lighted nock wont make a bad shot any better. Most States just want the Deer and Game gone. They can care less if you find your Deer or the Foxes or Yotes do.

Law? No. But I think it should be mandatory to use a lighted nock with video if you are going to claim the perfect shot and cannot recover your deer,

No more nanny state BS. If you like them, use em, but don't force others to do so under penalty of law.

ahhh.. this calls for a triple face palm.
i get tired of the 'there should be a law about that' mentality. Leave me alone.

NO

Besides, until someone can make one that's as good as a Beiter nock I won't touch one.
