Isn't a 357 or 44 mag. revolver considered a sporting firearm. I know several guys who hunt with them.
Not trying to split hairs here but this could easily be misinterpreted.
I do EXACTLY that. I carry a S&W 686 in .357Magnum whenever I hunt in bear country, and since it is considered a SD weapon ( in addition to a legal hunting gun), I am 100% legal. I believe the intent of the law would prohibit an Uzi full auto, a 12 Ga shotgun....you get the picture. If you have a LTCF permit, then whatever you might normally carry for self defense you can carry for self defense while hunting. That is what it tries to explain.
I recently asked a similar question because I carry a flintlock pistol during the after Xmas flintlock season in addition to my flintlock rifle, and as near as anyone can figure, (and MANY suggested it would not be the best choice), my flint pistol is LEGAL to carry as my personal SD gun back and forth, and also legal to hunt with during the perscribed season.
Heaven has a gate, walls, and strict immigration policy.... enough said.
