We just moved back to NS so its been a while since I hunted here and would like some clarification. Can I hunt rabbits with a 22lr during deer season? Ive read the regs but they seem to be written by lawyers

yes.

from section 5 of NS Firearm & Bow Regs;

" (2) During the open season for hunting snowshoe hare, a person may possess and use a rim fire rifle of .22 calibre or less or a muzzleloader of .40 calibre or less.

Clause 5(2)(a) replaced and renumbered subsection 5(2): O.I.C. 97-522, N.S. Reg. 101/97; amended: O.I.C. 2007-229, N.S. Reg. 229/2007; O.I.C. 2013-215, N.S. Reg. 238/2013."

Thanks! Thats what I read but for some reason I thought you had to wait until deer season ended. Maybe that was somewhere else we lived.
