Indiana Rifle Season?
I have recently heard through a rumor that Indiana could have a rifleseason within the next five years. Has anyone else heard of this and do you think it is a good idea. I don't think it is at least not right now anyway.

I think it would be great, driving to Indianappolis, I saw lots of open corn fields, and it was plenty of room to shoot a rifle, IMO.

Who said it was shot down? Last I looked, and I've been following this one since the initial proposal stage, it was still on the table. The sticking point, as TROPHYHUNTER25 mentioned, was the cartridge. That has pretty much been settled and the bill is now up for final consideration with the NRC. You can find the real scoop here: IDNR website

I hope that is does not happen. We finally getting big bucks in my area from the one buck rule. Everybody that I know around hereare being patient and letting little deer go by. Where I hunt from your farthest shot is only 100 yardsat the max. There is no need for a high powered rifle.

RE: Indiana Rifle Season?
The calibers being considered for PCR are already legal in pistols, as are many that were not considered for PCR due to their higher velocities. The rifles/cartridges under consideration are all also low velocity, similar in range to currently allowed slug guns and muzzleloaders, not cannons like some would have you believe. You're unlikely to even see a "cowboy gun" once the rule gets approved unless you're the one carrying it.

in my opinion it should be legal. i hunt with a sigle shot .308 pistol. thats legal and alot more power than a hhandgun cartridge.
