I believe Ohio is shotgun (or rimfire) only but I'm not sure. I also believe they make exceptions for handguns, black powder rifles, or rifles chambered for handgun calibers)Arya: OK on the birds. I'll look up the Capercaillie.
Santaman: Is it not true that deer hunting in some US states is shotguns only?
It's definitely true that some wildlife management areas are shotgun only in several states (though now necessarily statewide) Some areas here on the Eglin AFB military reservation are archery only.
