Bear Archery Changes

They added another week of bear archery for this next season which is great. Now they are adding an in-line/muzzloader bear season during the October doe in-line/muzzloader season. Now you could always hunt with a bow during that week for deer. I hope we would still be allowed to use a bow during this in-line/muzzloader bear season as well. The bow is lower powered weapon with a shorter range than an in-line, it wouldn't make sense for me if they don't allow us to use a bow during this week as well. Every other rifle/muzzy season you're allowed to use a bow as well and I hope that the case with this early muzzloader bear season. Does anyone know what the rules will be?

Same here. I can see a requirement of a ML stamp to use the bow for bear during that season - I just hope you can still use the bow. Buck, doe, or bear ... yes please.

My guess is muzzleloader only for bear followed by two weeks of archery for bear.

Yeah and senior and junior license holders can use a regular firearm the last 3 days of that October inline deer/bear season. So a fella with the right license and equipment can hunt 3 weeks straight in Oct. for bear.
