Well it looks like there are other hazards to contend with hunting Deer

http://www.wcax.com/story/20240100/nh-man-attacked-by-deer

Can you carry a pistol in Vermont while hunting? Seems like it would be prudent to be able to put an animal out if it was thrashing about. I can wear a pistol on my belt at a restaurant so it would seem like if I wanted one while I was hunting it should be allowed. Vermont probably has some stupid law designed to prevent bow hunters from shooting deer.

I am thinking having a pistol would be a good idea in coyote country. I have seen reports of large packs of coyotes in the woods. Seems like a 9mm 18 shot hand gun would give you an advantage if the coyotes wanted your deer or your hide. This is bound to happen in Vermont as it has in other states.

I looked for that law and couldn't find it. Vermont doesn't require a permit to carry a pistol concealed or in the open. Seems odd they would say now you can't have one when you are hunting with a bow. I mean really did they have a problem with Bow hunters shooting deer and then sticking them with an arrow after they knocked them down? Really? Can you carry a pistol fishing? Might shoot the trout instead of using a hook?

I think I would ignore that rule. I hate rules for the sake of rules. If someone can eat at the Bobcat with a pistol on their belt (for no reason) you ought to be able to have one in the woods as a tool.

Agreed Bob. Lots of stupid-ass laws out there. Do what you feel is right and it should all work out. Wasn't all that long ago you could legally shoot fish (pickeral) in Vermont. I remember taking the NRA class as a kid, and wondered why it was ok to shoot fish, but were instructed that you never fire a gun into water. Go figure.

you can still shoot fish vermont is the only state with a designated season for it. 

Bow & Arrow Deer Season — Oct. 6–28 and Dec. 1–9, 2012

LICENSE: Any person wishing to hunt deer with a bow and arrow during archery deer season must have an archery license/tag.

LIMIT: No more than three deer may be taken during the archery season. One legal buck may be taken during the archery season anywhere in the state. In 2010 and 2011, Wildlife Management Unit E was NOT open to antlerless deer hunting during archery season. All other WMUs were open to the taking of antlerless deer during archery season. Check Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s website (http://www.vtfishandwildlife.com) in August to see which WMUs are open to antlerless deer hunting in archery season.

Deer must be taken by bow (long bow, recurve bow or compound bow) and arrows. The arrowhead must be at least 7 ⁄ 8 of an inch in width with two or more cutting edges. For this season, a person must have a bow and arrow license in addition to the regular hunting license (except for nonresident hunters with an archery-only license).

IT IS ILLEGAL TO CARRY A FIREARM WHILE BOW HUNTING DEER  IN THE BOW AND ARROW SEASON.

also:

Special Provisions: A person who purchases a muzzleloader deer license shall not carry, while deer hunting during the muzzleloader deer season, any firearms other than one single-barreled muzzleloading firearm.

Yea I see that but I looked in the State law directory to find the actual law in writing and I could not find it on the Vermont state web site. Anywhere. There is some junk about Fish and Game getting to set hunting seasons, limits and such. I can't find where the right to bare arms is negated in a law while its Bow hunting season. I don't think is an offense you can be prosecuted for. You can't shoot a deer during Bow season unless of course its a problem animal. But I think they cannot legally stop you from carrying a pistol

unfortunately hunting is a privilege not a right and if you wish to precipitate you must follow the laws/rules set for the activity.

Show me the Legislation is all I am saying. The hunting Regulations do not = the law. They are the result of the legislation. I looked for the law and didn't find it. I like to question authority if you didn't get that already. I believe the restriction we are talking about is not supported by legislation, that's all I am saying. 

If I have a bow in my truck and a hand gun am I breaking the law?

If I have a hand gun and walk in the woods during Bow season am I breaking the law?

If I carry both a bow and a hand gun and take a deer with an arrow am I breaking the law?

I don't think so.

This is like taking your bottles to recycling and the open container law. Are you breaking the law when you take your bottles back.

Only if the Cop is a dick.

I would like to be a guide. It was actually my dream job for a while. one of my good friends, Angus that doesnt live here anymore came up for a name for it. Milk Crate Guide Service. one day he came over and I sent him to a spot where I had a milk crate on an old abandon snowmobile trail behind the orchard. half hour later he had a buck.

He does look a bit too clean for someone that just shot and field dressed a deer. I guess that's what guides are for. [smile]
