So my buddy is going on his bow only moose hunt next week. I had planned on tagging along to help bag and hike etc if he happens to get one. What are the rules on taking a rifle into a bow only area. Keep in mind that its only going to be in case a bear decides to descend upon us while dressing out a kill. There were a lot of bear tracks in the area which is the cause for concern and desire to carry something heavy hitting just in case. If its not allowed I suppose the pistol or shotgun with a slug will suffice if that is allowed.
