Up here in Northern WI, the Native Americans are seriously considering hunting deer at night with the aid of night vision binoculars. It is my simple opinion that Native Americans should be able to do what they want to on their own lands and that night hunting is something they have done for many years. A full moon with fresh snowfall and archery hunting can safely be done all night long. It can not be because the laws forbid night hunting, but if the Native Americans want to do it on their own lands then I think they have all right to do so. My only issue is when you place Night Vision Optics on a rifle you have severely changed the nature of the hunt. I don't think most Native Americans would like to see this happen either as it takes out the sport.
Most of the large mature bucks will be mostly nocturnal and that is what keeps them alive. If the natives are interested in trophy hunting I can see their desire to night hunt, but if a large buck is taken with night vision and a rifle, I don't see how they would be proud of that accomplishment. Here is a link to the story
