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
Virginia is different in each county. In some counties rifle's are allowed, others shotgun with slugs, while others shotguns with buckshot are only permitted.
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.
New York has a separate zones, but are now modifying them some to include rifle in what used to be shotgun only.
I Ohio it is all shootgun.
Wisconsin has half and half
Agreed with MB915 answer above and A + 1 for you sir!!!
