This bill expands the allowed use of air rifles for hunting game. It amends RSA 207:3, I to allow the use of air rifles with a caliber of .30 or greater to take small game. However, air rifles cannot be used to take moose, bear, turkey, or deer. The executive director will specify the method and manner of taking small game with an air rifle in rules adopted pursuant to RSA 541-A. The bill will take effect 60 days after its passage.
