§ 2311. Restrictions on recreational spotlighting.

(1) Upon any building at any time.

(2) In any manner which frightens, excites or harasses any livestock, poultry or other farm animal.

(3) To search for or locate for any purpose any game or wildlife anywhere within this Commonwealth, other than specified in paragraph (4), daily between the hours of 11 p.m. and sunrise on the following day.

(4) To search for or locate for any purpose any game or wildlife anywhere within this Commonwealth at any time during the antlered deer rifle season and during the antlerless deer rifle season.

(5) Upon photoelectric cell lights.

The provisions of this subsection shall not apply if it is proven that the headlights of a vehicle or conveyance were being used while traveling on a roadway in the usual way.

(b) Penalty.--A violation of this section is a summary offense of the fifth degree.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I think the PGC has enough people who are smart enough to determine if spotting has a negative impact. Since the PGC hasn't found the need to propose a change Im confident that spotting isnt a problem.

The people who are having problem's with people spotting illegally, and/or doing things illegal while spotting, need to contact the authorities and report the issues. We dont need to make more laws every time someone does something stupid.

Good luck, Tony

Why spot where you can't hunt?
You don't enjoy seeing wildlife unless you can kill it? You spot because you enjoy seeing deer.

All those folks driving around Winslow hill aren’t going elk hunting there either. Just looking. Same as folks looking at deer. Except they’re bigger.

Teach him or her how to hunt and woodsman ship. I could cafe less about your horses as I hate horses. I do not want you or anybody else invading my property just because the current law says you can with a light. If you like or condone spotlighters on your property, fine. I choose to not have the intrusion on my property. I really feel bad for the guys that are teaching there children as far as your post about shining up in the trees and all over is acceptable.
It would figure that you hate horses. That says so much about you and confirms the suspicions I already held about you.

Maine does have something correct... And they figured it out a long time ago, no deer drives and a ban on spotlighting. With a lot less hunting population. Sounds great to me.

It's pretty obvious you don't know how to have a good time.

I like using spotlighting as a tool to drive deer off private land to public land. Yes i am kidding but banning spotlight is a little petty.
