I was wondering if the new Trijicon AccuPin bow sight is legal in Idaho even though it's Pope and Young legal? It does contain tritium, which in the regs says is not allowed.


This archer correctly answered his own question. The Trijicon AccuPin bow sight uses tritium, and the rules are clear: In any hunt, including general any-weapon seasons and short-range hunts, it is unlawful to pursue or kill big game animals: ... With any electronic or tritium-powered device attached to an arrow, bolt or bow. Except disabled archery permit holders may use a nonmagnifying sight with battery powered or tritium lighted reticles. So, no; he cannot use this bow sight in Idaho.
