IIRC, if you have a LTCF, you may have a sidearm. You just can't have a rifle or shotgun in the car.

I am sure there will be someone along in a few mins to correct me if I am wrong.

Default Re: Deer spotting laws

Spotlighting Wildlife: It is unlawful to 1) spotlight wildlife while in
possession of a firearm, except by individuals who have a License to Carry
Firearms permit, and only with firearms authorized by the permit (most
sporting arms are not authorized), bow and arrow, or other device capable
of killing wildlife; 2) spotlight wildlife during the regularly scheduled statewide
antlered and antlerless deer seasons (Nov. 29-Dec. 11), including
those days separating the seasons and including the late firearms deer
seasons in WMUs 2B, 5C & 5D;
and 3) cast an artificial light upon any
building, farm animal or photoelectric cell. Recreational spotlighting is
lawful between sunrise and 11 p.m., except as previously noted. Spotlighting
includes handheld lights, accessory spotlights on vehicles and
vehicle headlights when intentionally used to locate or view wildlife. A
person hunting raccoons, skunks, opossums, bobcats, weasels, foxes and
coyotes on foot may use a handheld light, including a gun-mounted light.
Furbearer hunters still may not use a flashlight or spotlight that projects a
laser light beam,
though.

so the last day of any deer season in any section of the state is January 29, that means between January 30th and the start of the next years archery season i can spot?
