Q:
Does any other state out there, besides Michigan, have separate shotgun and rifle zones? In lower MI we have a divider line which determines what we have to use for a gun during our deer season.

Pennsylvania has seperate rifle and shotgun-only zones. Proximity to Urban or suburban areas or Flat terrain dictate. In the big woods and mountains rifles are allowed. Here in NJ its shotgun only

we have a short range weapon zone in the part of Idaho I live in, which does'nt make sense because you can go out there and sight in a centerfire rifle but you cant hunt with one. I was almost shot last year while bowhunting by some nimrod shootin beer cans in the pakinglot.

Northeast Arkansas Delta is flat and open and the use of centerfire rifle is prohibited for obvious reason.

What I scratch my head about in Michigan is that with a culling permit you can use a rifle even in the shotgun only zone.
