    I've never read anything against it. A bow is legal equipment for the entire season, if it is a legal ML then you should be fine.

    I could be wrong but I think any archery equipment is legal during fire arm season. And I think this would include cross bow.

    the way I have always heard is

    bow is legal all seasons
    Muzzy legal during Muzzy and modern gun
    Modern gun only during modern gun

    I would say it is, but talk to your local official to be safe, he will be the one writing the ticket.

    I'd like to get a video of you packing all your gear to the stand. :D:D:D

    It's legal. I suggest you take an extra screw in step to hang your muzzleloader (via the sling). A 2nd should be on the opposite side of the tree to put the bow down if you must light the powder :)
    As someone has already commented, it's quite the trick to get this gear to your stand, especially if you have a climber on your back:eek:
    Good luck.

    Thanks for all the help! I have a fixed position stand and a bow hanger in the tree. I will let you know how it goes. It aught to be interesting to say the least!

    according to, the archery hunting season is from sept the 6th until jan the 19th. it does not say that you cannot carry in a bow with your gun. i think that you are in the clear. by the way...ive carried in both before.
