During the last 3 days of the early muzzleloader season in October, Seniors and juniors can use a rifle to hunt with. can they carry a bow, rifle and muzzleloader with them..just in case ?
Why would they carry a muzzleloader when there isn't anything legal to shoot with one that isn't legal to shoot with the rifle? Other than if they truly wanted to use the muzzleloader, but then why carry a rifle.
Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
I think the second you shoot the bear with a ML you broke the law as you would have been hunting with an unlawful weapon (bow) in your possession. I've never bothered carrying both weapons so it doesn't bother me, but if I was planning on doing it I'd want something in writing saying it was legal JMO.
. If one was to shoot a deer with the bow while carrying a shotgun, ( not a legal weapon for archery deer season) you would be in violation of the law. One might try to claim they were toting both weapons for turkey ( both weapons would be legal for them ) , not sure a warden is going to buy your story if you’re in a tree stand with a grunt call and rattling horn.
