Small game hunting during Reg Deer season


Recommended Posts

OK, filled my only tag for rifle season, but still want to take my son and a youth hunter out to fill theirs. I am finding nothing saying I can't squirrel hunt while they deer hunt. Am I missing it?? Trying to make sure I am not breaking any rules. Thanks in advance...

You can hunt small game during Deer season, I do it all the time, but I think assisting others hunting big game without a valid tag is not allowed.

Not assisting... Only driving.. I won't be anywhere near them...

Driving as in driving the vehicle to their spot so they can hunt? Because obviously driving deer would be assisting and not legal. Other wise you can hunt small game all you want as long as you are not some how helping them.

Going from your title--- of course you can Small game hunt during Deer Season. I sometimes will go for Squirrels. I won't take my Sister's Lab Pheasant Hunting though until near the end of the 3 week Rifle Deer Season. That is just my decision though. I wear a bright orange hat when, I Hike during Rifle Deer in Sterling Forest. At Stewart State Forest- no Hikers or especially Mountain Bikers are allowed in there during Deer Gun Season.

Driving the truck there. Yes, I know a deer drive would be assisting. Lol.

Could you run across some a$$hat who says that even though you are clearly squirrel hunting you are indeed aiding the kids in their deer hunt by moving game???

Private farm... I know most of the others that hunt it.. and I would literally be no where near the others hunting.. Would be a stretch for them to say I am aiding.. I would never try to bend any rule especially with kids involved.  Showing them the proper way to do things is priority..

Years ago I’d tag out and be done early  ,I wanted help my buddies but I couldn’t . Then I thought the law changed and as long as you had a license, you could push, drive and so on , I remember because I was very happy to be able to participate. I read the guide and looked online, but did not come up with anything .
