Elk hunting bow and rifle

Can a person purchase both a regular bow license and a regular rifle license in the same season? (eg hunt bow season, but if tag not filled, then hunt a general rifle season?)

Answer

You are correct. As long as the elk zone tag that you purchase is open for an archery season AND an any-weapon (rifle) season you can use the same tag for the two weapon types...

Thanks
