Handgun use in extended doe season?

Extended doe season is open here in 2B. Can handguns be carried/used in addition to slug guns?

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

Re: Handgun use in extended doe season?

as long as it isnt in allegheny county sure. but with the special regulations in allegheny county you can only use slug guns muzzleloaders and bow/crossbow. no matter what season it is

If its outdoors I'm willing to give it a try.

Dude,

Reread the post....

1 part would be Yes and the other part would be No for allegheny county

It is a 2 Part Question on what was put in it!

With an LTCF the part that says
Quote:

The answer would be Yes!

But the part
Quote:

Would be the No Part!

All that could be done is the Handgun used as a Protection Weapon, NOT a Hunting Weapon!
And like I and others have said in Other posts...Do NOT Carry a Scoped 6 shooter for the Protection part of it...your going to be doing a LOT of explaining why you have a Scoped Handgun on you for Protection!!

Thanks for the responses. I wanted to use it for hunting so I see that is not allowed in Allegheny Co. Thanks.

Re: Handgun use in extended doe season?

This is the dumbest law in this state. And we have a lot of those. You can use an in-lines & slug guns but not a pistol. So dumb.

Re: Handgun use in extended doe season?

It is not as simple as changing Game laws, but also attitudes. The state of Delaware is a prime example of this, Delaware is not a Large Deer hunting State but it took several years for them to allow handguns for Deer Hunting, the main problem was hunters could not find common ground. And many used the excuse; it has always been shotgun only and should remain so, they also felt a Handgun was an unfair advantage. Anyone that has killed a Deer with a Handgun knows this is not true.
But here in Pa, you have Bow hunters fighting with Cross bow and Rifle Hunters, you have guys calling for a ban on spot lighting, as well as a fight over Sunday hunting.
Just look at the controversy over a Saturday Bear opener.

I dont understand. What is "dumb" about this regulation? Is it because you feel the area dosnt need to be slug/in-line only? Or is it because you feel that pistols/handguns fall into the slug/in-line range?

Good luck, Tony
