Furbearer season

So, as far as I can tell furbearer season is during the entire small game season, which is August 15 thru end of February. This means that, except for those dates open for deer hunting I can go after hogs on public land with a centerfire rifle that entire time small game season. And if I have a big game license, of course, can basically hunt hogs with big game weapons during deer season as well. So on WMAs, I can basically hunt hogs with a centerfire rifle from Aug 15 thru end of February, except for WMAs that are closed to either deer or small game on certain dates. Is this right?
 
No. Fur bearer is fox and bobcat. Fox and bobcat don’t come into season until Dec 1. Fix and bobcat are the only ones you can use center fire for.

So, it says legal weapons for Fox/Bobcat are small game firearms or centerfire rifles. Since they started allowing buckshot on WMAs, I am wondering if buckshot is legal for Fox/Bobcat?
