In addition to shotguns and muzzle-loading rifles, hunters could use a .35 caliber or larger pistol capable of holding no more than nine rounds, and a .35 caliber or larger rifle loaded with straight-walled cartridges and a maximum case length of 1.80 inches (in other words, not a high-power rifle cartridge, which carry for extremely long distances).   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Tourism Committee on February 19, 2013
Reported in the House on May 9, 2013 Without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
