Default ?? Can light can be used?

Can you use a std flash light and shoot for the eyes (greenish tint for most deer and orange to amber for omnivores)
coon hunting here in the USA you can get a good feel for whats out there with a dim low candle power flashlight and shine the eye's
many raccon have been shot from tree and field with just such method.

We have jack lighting laws (lights powerd from a vehicle)
some areas have restrictions on how much candle power you can use

JeagerM, Do you hunt on private property or on public lands? Do you have to pay the state market price for the meat you harvest? That used to be the rule in some parts of Europe.
What handguns do you carry?

It is considered poor sportsmanship to use a flashlight in Germany. Hunters make up only two percent of the population, which means if someone catches you will be shunned. No invitations to social hunts or private lands. It is not worth it.

Private lands. State lands are a little expensive. I pay what the owner of the hunting rights of that land sets. It can be inexpensive to free, but mostly you pay some money. I carry an HK USP .40 while hunting. I also have a Sig P226r for the home and comp shooting.

Thx for the answer most interesting. Can you carry your handguns for protection? What are your handgun laws like?

Only while hunting. I have to unload the weapon after leaving the hunting areas, but keep the gun on me. I have to store my guns and ammo separately in a safe at home. I can only shot someone if they have a gun, and if someone is trying to steal my rifle while hunting. I have to first give a verbal warning and a warning shot. Of course if they are shooting at me that does not apply. Most home intruders do not Have a gun because guns are highly regulated. So, I have pepper spray that also forms a cloud and I am trained to use weapons like in the picture.
