Thread: Blowgun Hunting/Fishing

    Default Blowgun Hunting/Fishing

    Does anyone know or where to find regulations for using a blowgun for hunting and fishing? I have a Cold Steel blowgun that I would like to whack something with, but I don't want to get in any trouble. I can't seem to find anything in the regulation booklets.

    I don't know about hunting, but definitely not legal gear for fishing.

    I would say you are safe to use it as long as you don't use toxins or anything to debilitate, incapacitate, or cause undue harm to wildlife like all other weapons... Instead of using a .22 or my .17, I have killed squirrels with a blow dart that were trying to nest in the top of my house so that I wasnt shooting a gun in city limits... Ask a trooper would be my advice.

    If you can spear a bear over bait, you should be able to use a blow gun for bears over bait.

    I don't think I'll be shooting a bear with a blowgun, but I see your point.

    Oh come on, it's over bait!

    Maybe if I can thread that dart through his ear and into his brain... I think I'll stick to a spear for now, or if my senses come back I'll just use my -06.

    If I remember correctly--- to use a blowgun for fishing you must be completely submerged...

    just like spear and whitefish gigging

    and the water's cold

    Look at (50) on the last link

    A blowgun does not constitute a spear or speargun. So, a blowgun is not legal methods and means.
