    Anybody bring bear spray or pistol for protection during deer bow hunting season? There are many predators out there and just wondering if it's a good idea or recommended in your area.

    The state that I live in, New York State, doesn't allow handguns to be carried while bow hunting. I think handguns should be allowed to be carried while bow hunting for personal protection against four-legged predators as well as the two-legged type.

      The same law applies here in NC. During bow season only a bow be carried, no kind of firearm period.

        I agree with Johnie that handguns should be allowed, but most of the public land that I hunt restricts all firearms during archery season.
