This is the only mention of firearm restrictions that I could find in The Big Game Guidepublished by The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.On page 33FIREARM RESTRICTIONS During the November firearm deer season, only hunters with a valid unfilled deer permit may hunt wildlife other than deer with centerfire rifles or centerfire handguns, provided they are hunting in the deer management unit for which their deer permit is valid.Just stirring the pot a bit! :-)
It shall be unlawful:... 001.01B5 to hunt antelope or deer, underauthority of an archery permit while in possession of, or having under control, any firearm, or to hunt antelope or deer under authority of a muzzleloader permit while in possession of, or having under control, any breech-loading firearm, except that this shall not prohibit carrying a firearm within theenclosed portion of a vehicle.
I still just flat out disagree with this law. If the animal is close enough to handgun range then it is in bow range, unless you carry a hunting revolver. And if you don't process it yourself there is no way the processor won't realize it was shot with a gun and can turn you in. If a person is gonna poach then they are going to poach. The ONLY argument I can see with this is if the person has a bad shot and just paralyzes the deer and the person wants to put it out of its misery by putting a bullet in its head, and in my opinion that is being an ethical hunter by dispatching an animal as fast as possible. I may just write G&P to see all their reasoning behind this.
