I'm not real sure about that. If your hunting in a "special regulation area" (ie: Allegheny County) and you have a flintlock license, you may be able to use a bow to take a antlered deer. However.....I'm not exactly sure.

Either a WCO needs to chime in....or just call your local Game Commission office and just ask.

No you may not use a bow to take an antlered deer in flintlock season under a muzzleloader license, however if you have an archery license you may during the late archery season because archery season is in at the same time.

Cept in the SRA. Archery ends on 1/9/10 while flintlock ends on 1/23/10.

Such technicalities in the different seasons and rules and areas simply point out that the hunting regulations and laws are excessively and needlessly complex.

Funny, we have people here that want to make it mre complicated by micro managing the state.

Yep, we are fast approaching the point that a hunter will need a GPS linked computer tied to the Naval observatory clock in DC, just to know what and if he can hunt as well as what weapon can be used and how much orange is required.

Maybe after the January meeting, the SRA regulations will be cleaned up.

Perhaps KR could offer a free service to HPA members to provide in-the-field counsel, jus call em on the hotline.

It is very confusing. You can tag a doe with your buck tag if you have a flintlock late season, but can't if you are archery hunting which is a more limited weapon?

Than, in the SRA areas, you can still shoot a buck with a flintlock past January 9th, but you can't with a bow?

which is more limited doesn't matter and has nothing to do with it. Two different seasons that hapen to run concurently. The late bow season came before flintlock season. There was a time when flintlock hunters had to turn in their doe application when they bought a flintlock license. Also archers used to be able to take a doe or buck without an archery season.

It can be confusing at times. However, to clear matters up....just join HPA, post your question here, and someone will post an answer to your question.

See how easy that is?

I use to read tax law. Now, I can tell you that if you had a question about tax law, you could call the IRS. They would give you an answer. However, that answer would more than likely favor a position that the IRS would take....and result in paying more tax than perhaps a taxpayer should.

It's usually a lot less costly to call a CPA.

However, when it comes to game laws, the matter is pretty clear. You either are going to shoot something with a legal weapon in a legal season in a legal area....or not.

Yes, there are other matters that can be addressed. But these guys here will tell ya if you can or can't.

Great forum. Just ask.

Dave

PS...and where would the Forum be without guys like John? There are times when I've had to clean coffee off of my laptop keyboard because it sprayed from my mouth from his sarcastic post. I only hope a few of mine have done the same for others. I know I've spent some time outs for a few.
