liecabucks, great write up and super buck! Congrats.
GoHigher, I expect it is illegal to shoot after dark for any reason in most states, but still a good question to run by the warden. Or better yet, email the question so you have a documented answer.
It's one of those situations where ethics and the law may be at odds. That being said, just how dark can you see well enough to shoot? To clearly see what's behind the animal? My rifle scope will let me see clearly enough for about 10 minutes past legal shooting light (maybe 15+ minutes with the binos), depending on cloud cover, moon, etc...
