I would like to shed some light on a situation I am currentlyin. When I was 18 I decided to rebel against society and began to cause havoc whilebreaking the law, the end result of such stupidity, I became a six time felon. Allof them I donít embrace, but I am learning to cope with the consequences. Thesemistakes donít make me a bad person just someone who had a rough start at life. I became a bow hunter a year ago andabsolutely love it. I am trying to figure out if I am able to hunt with a rifleor shotgun being a six time felon. I called the ATF today and talked to someonewho told me I am allowed to hunt with a rifle but If I get caught using a firearmthen I could potently be looking into jail time. I didnít really understand hisreasoning. He told me maybe to call the District Attorney. If anyone has had a similarsituation and could give me some advice where I could start talking to someonethat wonít give me the run around I would highly appreciate it. I need to findsome type of organization that could write this on paper so I can have proofwhile I hunt. Thank you all for your time and I appreciate your insight.
