RE: iNDIANA DNR to allow pistols during archery season
 
Here in NH, our bear season runs concurrent with the archery deer season. I carry my TC Encore pistol in .308 just in case a bear is out of bow range and I want to light him up. There is also no closed season on coyotes, they are a target of opportunity that I would smoke with the pistol as well.

You can read DNR's press release about here:

Most of the focus has been on handguns allowed in state parks, but carrying a handgun while hunting was part of the change.

The kind of people that have concealed weapons permits and bowhunt are NOT the kind of people that poach in most cases. I don't see what the problem is.

It takes a pretty big set to try and pass off a bullet hole as an archery kill. Someone will do it, but not many IMO.

Yeah you got the right to bear arms, but not in all situations. Remember that hunting is a privilage regardless of what you may think. And privilages have guidelines that you must follow.
So is driving but that doesn't mean you can't bear arms in your vehicle.

Being from IN myself I am ALL in favor of being allowed to carry my LEGALLY concealed firearm while bowhunting. 1st here in IN we have what is known as "Castle doctrine" law......also known as No Retreat law. Meaning if a 2 legged varmit (predator) attempts to accost me while legally hunting (or any other activity) i have no legal burden to retreat.

beinga hunter of deer both bow and firearm for some 20+ years now, i have often wanted that extra bit of insurance walking to and from my stand at all hours of the day and night.....you just NEVER know when some scumbag will decide he wants your gear or vehicle more than you do.

In truth, a poacher is a poacher...a thief is a thief...a slimeball is a slimeball and NO Law will change that....this just makes us LAW ABIDING hunters a touch safer in our passion.

I'm all for those types of rules. We have just been given the same opportunity here in PA. Great law. A poacher will poach regardless of the laws. I really doubt that anyone is going to kill a deer any easier trying to hit it with a compact 9mm, than they could with a modern compound.

A slob hunter is gonna break the rules regardless. We have the right to bear arms regardless of what we are doing (within reason). I say if you wanna pack heat, pack the heat. Shame on the Indiana DNR for outlawing handguns while bowhunting in the first place.
