question ?

Can I use a semi-auto .22 handgun to dispatch animals in a trap?

the game book states " to dispatch trapped animals during DEER SEASON, trappers are limited to a manually operated 22 caliber or smaller rimfire rifle or handgun."

dont have a .22 revolver, and I dont want to scratch my rifle all up while carrying my trapping stuff. that is why I ask

Re: question ?

Really ? You answered your own Question. Manually operated.
No you can not use your Semi. Its a real good reason to buy a new firearm. Or scratch up the rifle .

Re: question ?

Im assuming since its not deer season ,you have the option to use your 357 revolver if you like. And you like big holes in your furs.

Re: question ?

Yeah really. The trapping pages of the hunting book states nothing pertaining to firearms that can be used when deer season is not in progress.
