End of the Hunting Season

It usually occurs during a time when the population is at its height and avoids the prime breeding season. A “closed season” is a time when it is illegal for hunters to pursue that species. For a variety of causes, such as food shortages, bad weather, and low population levels, a season may be canceled.

Special Muzzleloader Season Will Run from December 11-19

Montana’s general rifle season has ended. This winter, the state will be celebrating muzzleloader heritage by establishing a special nine-day hunting season. House Bill 242 made this possible by creating a nine-day muzzleloader heritage hunting season that will run from December 11 to December 19 each year. Many Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) will remain closed from now until May 14. The closure dates are available online.

The muzzleloader hunting season will run from November 23 through December 19. During this period, a person with a disability may use an arrow-gun and must have a physician’s certification. The arrows must have a minimum 7/8-inch broadhead and expand to this width upon impact. It is prohibited to use explosive-head arrows containing toxic substances. The season also requires hunters to wear blaze orange hats or vests and to wear blaze orange clothing.

Regulations for Paraplegic Hunters

The state has regulations pertaining to the hunting and shooting of animals and the use of unusual weapons. Paraplegic hunters must submit a statement from a physician stating that they are unable to use conventional archery equipment. Hunting with a crossbow or draw-lock is also permitted. A license is not required if the hunter is in a motor vehicle and the engine is off. Individuals with a permanent physical disability can hunt using a crossbow and bait. A hunting license is required. The state of New Hampshire will issue a hunting license for the whole season.

Regulations for Primitive Firearms

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has announced that the regulations for primitive firearms will be loosened in 2014. This year’s deer season is the first to be governed by the “weapon of choice” bill passed by the state legislature. Under this new law, hunters may use any legal firearm on private lands before the hunting season ends. The legislation does not affect hunting seasons on public lands, however. Archery, which is considered a form of hunting, has its own set of regulations.

Archery is an ancient art and predates primitive firearms by centuries. In the state of Missouri, modern firearms season begins Oct. 11 and lasts until the end of whitetail deer season on Jan. 1. This season is a progression of seasons, not a single day. It is important to note that “primitive” does not include crossbows or inline black powder guns.
