As a landowner you have that right jimmie in KY. And I would respect your request as a hunter. But that dont mean all land owners would have a problem with it. I know several who would be more than happy to let you hunt with rimfire or centerfire at night as long as you didnt hunt at their back door. I think OH. and VA. also allow centerfire. correct me if IM wrong. To be honest with you it really wouldnt be worth the effort if they made it shotgun only with no lights in my opinion. Again.....pass it or not.....we really cant complain as we can hunt them year round now. I have been pressuring them for the fact of some more hunting time for coyotes and also for the posssibility to hunt feral hogs at night also. You mentioned the fellow killed at night in GA.........how many hunting accidents happen in plain day..rifle and bow??
