Short Range weapons

Question:

I was unsuccessful in the regular deer hunt, can I still hunt in any of the short range weapons areas? I have both a muzzleloader and a crossbow?

Answer:

Yes, your regular deer tag is valid in a short range hunt.  Short range hunts are general hunts with a weapon restriction, just be sure to follow the weapon restriction listed on page 100 of the 2014 Big Game Season and Rules brochure.
