Q. Can I have a firearm with me while archery hunting during the early bow season?
A. There is no law prohibiting having a firearm in your possession while archery hunting. Keep in mind that the firearm cannot be used to take or assist in taking a big game animal during the archery season. Of course, if you choose to hunt with a bow during the firearm season, you can use a firearm to take or finish off an animal providing it is a legal firearm for big game hunting.
