    MONTPELIER — Three new hunting rules passed by the Legislature are now in effect.

    According to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, a person shall not take or attempt to take any wild animal by shooting a firearm, a bow and arrow, or a crossbow while on or within 25 feet of the traveled portion of a public road.

    It also is illegal to shoot a firearm, a bow and arrow, or a crossbow across the traveled portion of a public road.

    The third rule states it is now legal to carry a pistol or revolver while bow hunting deer in the bow and arrow deer season. The pistol or revolver may not be used to dispatch deer. It remains illegal to carry a rifle, shotgun or muzzleloader while bow hunting deer in the bow and arrow deer season.
