the bow and muzzleloader tag i believe are to be used in the season before the general open season for deer. and the week after the season these six weeks you can use your bow but need to use ur general open season tag. i called and thats what they told me from oct 25 to dec 6 the general open season tag. not the muzzle load a nd dow tag
If you have a Muzzle loader / Bow tag and a general tag and you shoot a deer using your general tag you can hunt the remainder of the season with a bow or a muzzle loader. The bow and Muzzle loader tag is good from Sept 6 to Dec 14. Some one who hunts with a bow or a Muzzle loader can shoot 2 deer in one day during the general deer season. This comes directly from Halifax.
