Q: Can I carry a .22 rimfire rifle for hunting squirrels while bowhunting for deer during a bows-only deer season?
– Scott Bisson, Brantford
A: If you are hunting deer during a bows-only season for deer, then the only type of fire-arm that you may use or carry with you is a bow. You can hunt squirrel (provided that squirrel season is open) with the bow.
