Michigan to allow night hunting with centerfire rifles.

I had commented a while back during a discussion on NV scopes that MI did not allow this, looks like we now do:

I need to find more info on this as I heard there are further restrictions in that it is only legal in the rifle zone, not the shotgun zone of southerm MI.  As it was just passed in Dec, there is not a lot out there on it yet.  I only found out about it while perusing the Michigan Gun Owners site.

It limits the caliber to 6.5 or smaller which has a lot of the 6.8 owners upset but I guess it is better than nothing.

I guess I can make full use of those NV scopes now.
