Hey Rakman-as far as I know it depends on what part of the county you are hunting. In Wildwood (where I bow and Muzzy hunt) you can use a shotgun or muzzy east of 109 and any weapon west of 109 provided that you have at least three acres and have filled out Wildwoods Permission Slip and Liability release form.
I have been huntin in Wildwood for 5 years now and have had no issues. The hardest part is just getting access to land. I am lucky, I have one place that is 60 acres where I can muzzy and bowhunt and another place where I bow hunt. (Lately I even bowhunt there during the rife season)
U2U me if need any more help.
What part of the county are you trying to hunt?
Also-I wanna see some pics of the 9 pt you took at Babler!
