If I have my m/l permit and extended bow permit, can I take both weapons in the stand with me? I wasnt sure about the legality of this but it would be nice to hunt with the bow and have the added range just incase that big boy hangs up at 40+ yards.

I doubt it. I asked this question regarding PA hunting, and the answer the PGC gave me was NO.

NJ might be different, but I doubt it. Call the division and ask....its the only way to be certain.

Now heres a thought. Why dont you take your gorgeous girlfriend out there, you with the bow, and her with the muzzy....All bases are covered then.:)[up]

Here's a similar question.

Can I have a fishing rod and a weapon?. For example fishing & duck hunting at the same time.

Another scenario: set out my tipups at Deer Pond in Alamuchy and watch the setup from shore with my bow during winter bow.
That depends;

Are you wearing green socks?

Suppose I cross the international date line while doing it?

I've had my pack fly rod with me while bow hunting. But was not actually fishing while sitting on stand.

don't see a reason why not though, but this is NJ again.

When hunting during the overlapping
firearms seasons for deer and when in possession
of the proper permits for the current seasons,
hunters may carry the firearms legal for
the current seasons. For example, when Sixday
Firearm and Permit Muzzleloader seasons
run concurrently, a hunter may be in possession
of a shotgun and a muzzleloading rifle
and/or smoothbore muzzleloader.
Only one muzzleloading rifle or smoothbore
muzzleloader may be in possession while deer
hunting.


Couldn't find anything about a bow and firearm, so would check first.
