Old woman creek deer gun hunt???????

My oldest son got a hunt here. The regulations say "rifled slugs and muzzleloader only". I called to see if these were ancient rules and if rifles were now permitted due to the recent changes. The female I talked to seemed to have no clue what I was talking about and told me to just follow the sheet I was sent.

According to what I was sent, we can't even use my slug gun with a rifled barell and saboted slugs, as it says "rifled slugs". I assume these are the same regs they have been putting out for years, and haven't changed them since the state laws on legal weapons have changed????

I plan on calling again and speakin to someone who else, but does anyone kno to what the actual rules are out there? Done some googling, but can't find anything.

Sounds like your over thinking it, Sounds to me like it's muzzle loaders and shotguns only.

But, there might be a point in checking in ref. to out dated regs. Call and get a hold of someone that has balls. Seams to me that people that don't own a pair don't usually know whats going on. I ran into this condition when I last got my motor worked on. The person I talked to there with no balls and a soft voice didn't have a clue. Good luck with it.
If you called the main office they will know every little about the hunt. I would call the district HQ and talk with them but I agree that you are over thinking it. If you look at a map there are some houses on the one side that are fairly close which I know doesn't mean a hill of beans with the distance we can get out of muzzies and shotguns compared to the rifle calibres we can use but if you take a non-hunter and mention "rifle" they will think AKs et al. BTW, Ravenna is still shotgun only too.
