Thats a great question, Personally I think if your tracking a wounded animal, you should have the right to defend yourself no matter the time of day or night. I know it's illegal to carry a weapon at night while tracking wounded deer in IL, but would love to see that rule changed. Calling hunters "poachers" because they are finishing off wounded deer shot during legal hunting hours doesnt cut it with me.
Didnt expect that answer from you not dispatching a wounded deer because its after hours. You would feel good about finding that animal and then letting it slowly die because you dont want to finish him or her off because of what time it is... Not very ethical is it. Finish the deer off.
