I don't know much about hunting, but I just wanted to know. Why is it illegal to spot light a deer?
I believe - at least in some states - they consider this unfair sport. Basically the deer freezes in the spotlight and are an easy kill.

In many states , spotlighting is not an illegal activity until one possesses or uses a firearm to shoot the animal. Spotlighting animals for scouting and recreational purposes is legal in many states. One should always know their local/state game laws. Spotlighting only works when it's dark and since legal deer hunting ends at dusk in most cases(except for crop damage and some population control hunts), it can be a two-fold violation if one shoots one using a light.
