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.
