    Update to DNR legal deer hunting equipment 10.11.2017

    All,

    I haven't seen anyone post on here lately about this but its pretty big news. You now CAN NOT hunt on public land with any sort of rifle. That includes Pistol Caliber Rifles that were previously legal. This emial just came out, roughly 5:30PM 10.11.2017

    I got it too. Very disappointing as I thought we were moving in the opposite direction.

    Yep. Just received it too. That sucks because my stand is literally right on the line with my private property and state property. Deer walks to my left I can use rifle , deer walks to my right nope. Guess I'll get the ml back out.

    Please call your state representative and discuss this issue.

    I personally think this is even more stupid than how they enacted rifle cartridges last year. (calling out certain cartridges on one line then a caliber on the next)

    We are moving in the opposite direction. Unfortunately the laws are being made by people that know absolutely nothing about firearms or hunting. We take 2 steps forward and 1 step back. They were attempting to fix their ignorant mistake of last year making only .243 and .30 legal. They blundered again trying to fix it. Hopefully by 2018 they will actually get it fixed.
