Late season squirrel and deer

So I have a question related to squirrel hunting. May I carry a squirrel rifle (flint) in flintlock season AND participate in drives for deer since I have the proper flintlock tag?

My thought is yes because I can participate in drives if I have filled my tags but not sure if carrying a squirrel rifle would raise some eyebrows with the pgc.
Could not find anything in the game laws.
What are your thoughts??

Believe you can but you would have to meet the orange requirements for small game.

In the Pa Hunters Digest, what is lawful for deer any flintlock larger than 44 caliber. If you are carrying a 32 or 36 caliober squirrel rifle and are properly licensed and wearing proper orange for small game, there is nothing at all for the game commission to raise there eyebrows at.

So this was my thought and reasoning as well, it is also logical, sometimes logic is less than meaningful in the eyes of the law😁
Thank you for both of the inputs received here.

Very true Dutch. And sometimes the PGC since of logic is extremely wacked out.
