So the state has approved air guns for deer this fall, only in the general season as well as air bows. Who's in?

Probably the same people that say a 223 is not big enough for hunting Deer.

I'm not. I don't think there is any advantage in an airgun than a rifle. Actually, the other way around. I'll stick to my trusty 7mm08

I still get a kick out of using my .54 caliber traditional cap lock Hawken muzzle loader.
You gotta get close under 100 yards, with one shot, and that big chunk o lead knocks the snot out of them old school style, and you don't know if you hit them until the smoke clears. cowboy

It will be up to the landowner or his designee.

Archery only will still be archery only for deer. Why would they change?? An airbow is not an archery device so will not be legal in archery. It is powered by air, not a bow string.

Why in the world would I want to hunt deer with an air gun?

I don't get it either. I have yet to hear a compelling reason to go out & buy all the necessary crap.

I can't believe that there are that many air rifle owners wanting to shoot deer that TP&WD would bother with them. Seems like there would be other important, pressing issues to deal with.

Be careful with that thing, you'll shoot your eye out.

Why not? If big bore air guns will recruit a few more hunters I'm all for it. They are effective.

I haven't the slightest clue on "all" the laws surrounding public land and across the US but I think it was design to skirt some of the "centerfire" laws and some were hoping it would be accepted as archery.

I always viewed it as liberals trying to get firearms outlawed. That way they can say you can use an air gun instead. First airguns need to be legal.
