    I have both archery any deer and firearms anterless tags left. This weekend can I take both my firearm with me for the anterless tag and my bow incase a buck walks by? Meaning have both things with me in the stand? I've never done this, sounds like a lot of work but wanted to be sure it was even legal before planning for it.

    I'll be in a county open for anterless. Thanks.

    No. If you are archery hunting then you are not allowed to be in possession of a firearm. Therefore, you could take both and only hunt antlerless deer on your firearms tag and be fine to use whichever weapon the deer is in range for, but can not hunt on an archery tag if you've got a firearm along.
