A proposal to require all of the state’s big game hunters to choose between either a bow or a firearm for the entire hunting season will be taken up during an afternoon Work Session. To be clear, this will mean that hunters will no longer have the option of pursuing big game with both a bow and a rifle during the same calendar year.
