Q: Am I permitted to keep arrows in my quiver with a small-game point during bows-only deer season? Occasionally I see rabbits while bowhunting, but I don’t want to waste a broadhead on small game.

A: Yes, an archery hunter may have arrows with small-game points while bowhunting for deer during a bows-only season for deer. The hunter could do the same while bowhunting for moose during a bows-only moose season. There is no restriction on the type of arrowhead that may be carried, but only arrows at least 600 millimetres long with heads at least 22 millimetres at its widest point and with two sharp cutting edges may be used to hunt big game or wild turkey.
