DNR Question of the week

Q: While hunting this fall, can I carry a shotgun for turkey and a bow for deer?

A: No. It is unlawful to possess a firearm while archery deer hunting.

This applies to bow hunters with a crossbow permit as well.

The exception is that if you have a permit to carry a handgun, you may have it while archery deer hunting, but this provision does not extend to shotguns or rifles.

If you’d like to use a shotgun for turkey, you’ll need to take your bow home, back to camp or secure it in a vehicle first.
