The Maddcatter is right, you can you any caliber rifle or handgun in Ohio, except for deer gun seasons, Includeing muzzle loader season, their afraid that you might take a deer with them I guess.

I agree, the DNR should make it legal to use rifles during gun season. Will help with the population control as well. How many times have you heard "But they just weren't close enough". This is why I use my in-line during shotgun season.

The DNR can never change the no rifles for deer regulations. That is and will always be up to the Ohio General Assembly which to me is a crock of well doo doo :mad:
Not that we can't hunt deer with rifles but that the DNR can't make any changes to hunting regulations they can only suggest them :rolleyes:

I Believe the in-line muzzleloader is as close to a rifle as we're gonna get in Oh. I'm amazed that they're allowed. Some Western states are even outlawing them I've read. In the long run, I think rifles would hurt Ohio's true trophy potential if allowed. We'd end up shootin 4's & 6's like WV and Pa. every year and I for one would'nt want to see that happen!---TF
