Default Pine Log WMA

I didn't hear much shooting this morning and only saw 2 other trucks in Pine Log for the morning hunt. I was covered up with turkey and 2 coyotes (to far for the X-Force) to reach them. Anybody see anything and if so what time were you seeing movement? I had to get down at 9:30 to make the wife happy.

So, it is closed for archery as well? I know there is a quota hunt in Novemeber which i was drawn for. I guess I need to double check all the regulations. To me it doesn't make much sense to have a WMA that you can't hunt during the majority of the season. Does anyone have any clarification?

For your clarification, under the the Deer Hunting sub-forum there is a sticky up top that is the Regulations for 2011-2012.

Yeah, I saw that post from yesterday. At least all i killed was TIME. I don't know if I understand why they structure the seasons the way they do at Pine Log. Seems like a waste of 15,000 acres if it is only open for bow season and the 2 hunts each year. What do they use the land for when hunting is not allowed? Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----, they have at least 20 or more horse back riders there on any weekend and they don't have to buy a $19 WMA permit. Does anyone know a reason for this?

It was open for hunting hogs with archery equipment. So you've got that going for you.

Call the warden to fine yourself for bad info. Not open for that either!

Seriously though, ignorance of the law doesn't hold water. Download a copy of the hunting regs or pick up a copy. If all else fails ask questions. There are people here that would be more than happy to answer your questions.

Pnome, thanks for the info!!! Thats right everyone, I was hunting "Small Game" this past saturday morning. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I still don't understand why it would not be open during statewide seasons though? Does anybody have an answer to this? From the quota numbers they have put up for the year, they are looking to be about 745 deer short judging from the amount of deer that have been signed out. I can't imagine that during the short quota hunt and gun hunt in December that they will get anywhere close to the number of deer they want killed there.

Because if they left it open for the whole season to anyone and everyone they would run out of deer. Alot of WMA's are like that... open for bow hunters and then two or three quotas for gun hunters

I think you're misreading.

That feral hog section only applies on the dates specified. "Aug. 12-14, Jan. 13-15"

This does apply: "and with small
game weapons during small game dates" Archery gear is legal small game weapons.

You can hunt and kill hogs on Pine Log during small game dates, you are just restricted to small game weapons.

Pnome is right, oldenred is wrong.


You can go in there w/ a scoped muzzleloader as well, unless they've changed the small game regs.

Is a .223 considered a .22 cal?

Ok, so the only time I can hunt WMA's for big game or hogs with big game rifles is quota hunts.

Quota hunts and Check-in big game hunts. Also the special hog hunts they have.

But if you want to go hunt them during small game dates, you can only use a bow, muzzleloader, rimfire, or shotgun (#2 shot or smaller).

If a .223 is in the same category as .22 then shouldn't be ok to use? Keyword would be the or, right?

If a WMA is open for Big Game firearms hunting, whether it is a quota, check in, or a sign in hunt, you can kill a hog with a legal big game firearm. Archery equipment is also legal. Obviously, if it is a quota hunt you have to have been chosen in the drawing. Legal big game firearms are as follows:
DEER & BEAR FIREARMS
• Modern Rifles and Handguns: Centerfire
Only, .22-cal. or larger with expanding
bullets.
• Shotguns: 20-gauge or larger loaded with
slugs or buckshot. Buckshot is not allowed
on WMAs, unless otherwise specified.
• Muzzleloaders: .44-cal. or larger, or muzzleloading shotguns 20 gauge or larger.
Scopes are legal.

If a WMA is open for Big Game Primitive weapons hunting, you can kill a hog with a legal primitive weapon as follows:
• Primitive Weapons: Legal weapons during primitive weapons season include crossbows, bow and arrow, and muzzleloading
firearm. Scopes are legal.

If a WMA is open for Small Game hunting, you can kill a hog with legal small game firearms and ammunition or archery equipment only. Legal small game firearms and ammunition are as follows:
SMAll GAME & FURBEARER FIREARMS
• Rifles and Handguns: Any .22-cal. or smaller rimfire, air rifle, or any muzzleloading firearm.
• Shotguns: Any having shot shell size 3.5
inches or smaller in length with No. 2 or
smaller shot

If a WMA is open for Turkey Hunting, you can kill a hog with a legal turkey firearm and ammunition or archery equipment only. Legal turkey firearms and ammunition are as follows:
TURKEY FIREARMS: Shotguns with No. 2 or
smaller shot and any muzzleloading firearm

On "Special Hog Hunts" outlined on page 37, and pages 42-60 of the Seasons and Regulations booklet hogs may be killed with big game firearms and hunter orange may be required.

If a WMA is open for Archery Big Game hunting you can kill a hog with legal archery equipment as follows:
ARCHERY: Crossbows, longbows, recurve
bows, and compound bows are allowed
for hunting any game or feral hog. Arrows
for hunting deer, bear or feral hog must be
broadhead type.
Note: as stated archery equipment is legal for any game or feral hog during any season.

Also remember that there is a big difference between a centerfire cartridge (223, 270, 30-06 etc, etc) and a rimfire cartridge (17, 22, 22magnum).

The key word is RIMFIRE, 223 is a CENTERFIRE cartridge.

The one on the right is a rimfire (standard .22LR). The primer is incorporated in the rim and when the rim is struck, the bullet is fired. The brass cannot be reloaded.

The one on the right is a centerfire. The primer is separate from the brass casing and can be removed after use and reloaded.

Rifles and Handguns: Any .22-cal. or smaller rimfire, air rifle, or any muzzleloading firearm
Oh ok... You said you were new to this, I just didn't know how new.


You can use a .17 WMR. That's where the "or" comes in.

I will agree that unless you read them every year, some things have to be translated from DNRSpeak to English.

I think better choice of typing it would be something like this:
Rifles and Handguns: Any .22-cal (or smaller) rimfire, air rifle, or any muzzleloading firearm.

That might be a better way for DNR to put it in the regs so it's easier for new people to understand. I know people that have been doing this for a while or were raised into it may take it as understood, but for people starting completely fresh there is ALOT in the regs to process as a whole.

Again, the key word in that sentence is RIMFIRE! That eliminates ALL centerfire cartridges!
