If I hunt in a open general rifle hunt in Oct and I am not successful and the same unit has an open general archery hunt in Nov can I hunt archery in Nov with the same tag??

I am referencing specifically to the unit 39 open general rifle season Oct 10 - Oct 31 and the late Nov archery season Nov 10 - Nov 30.. If both are open general, is one tag good for both as long as I do not shoot a deer with my rifle in Oct???

I do not see anything that talks about vehicle restrictions in units for trophy game that have vehicle restrictions for deer and elk. Is it true that there are no vehicle restriction for Moose where there is for elk?

I have recieved two different answers from two different Fish and Game offices.
