Can you use spotlights to hunt jackrabbits at night?


The jackrabbit is not a game animal and is unprotected. It is legal to hunt unprotected or predatory animals (coyote) on private land after obtaining written permission from the landowner and on public lands after obtaining a "Permit to Hunt with Artificial Light." This permit is available only at a Fish & Game regional office in those regions where they can be legally used. Not all regions allow spotlighting.
