Sure, you can hunt deer with your archery equipment, including crossbows, or your black powder weapons during the modern gun season.
But you have to follow the hunter orange requirements and bag limits for the modern gun hunt.
This means following zone season and gender regulations for modern gun hunting.
It also means that a bowhunter must wear hunter orange on the head and upper body at all times while hunting in the modern gun season.
This helps greatly with a hunter's safety.
Modern gun season includes the youth hunts of Nov. 7-8 and Jan. 2-3 as well as the regular modern gun seasons that open Nov. 14.
These close on different dates according to zone regulations.
