Hunting with short range weapons

Question:

Can I use a rifle that shoots pistol ammo, in short range weapon hunts ? Also can you use a muzzle loader that would not meet the general criteria for a muzzle loader ? By that I mean inline--scoped etc.

Answer:

Short-Range Weapons

 

In big game seasons restricted to short-range weapons, it is unlawful for hunters to use any weapon other than a muzzleloader, archery equipment, crossbow, a shotgun using slugs or shot of size #00 buck or larger, or a pistol using straight-walled cartridges not originally developed for rifles.
