Handgun hunting

  1. is it legal to use a handgun? to hunt in maine?
     
  2. I believe that it is legal to hunt with a handgun, however, it must be in plain sight while you are hunting. I could be wrong, but I think I am right.

    I believe you are right Ithaca. Hunting with a handgun is legal but it has to be a larger caliber than .22
    You are also correct about not concealing your weapon while hunting with it, ever. Unless you have a permit to conceal.
    There are states now that are opening up handgun only seasons for deer.
