I have some friends here in GA who work for the DNR. We get some nonsensical hunting laws that make it into the regulations from time to time. Just remember, it is the state legislature that makes up the laws, not the DNR. Often they have an intent in mind, but lack the knowledge about hunting/shooting to word the laws in a way that makes sense.

I've seen that happen a few times over the years and some are so poorly written that they are unenforceable. The DNR will simply ignore them until they can be changed, but it does put hunters in a bind and it is usually better to be cautious. Sometimes the error is brought to the attention of the legislature and clarifications are made the next year. Other times I've seen silly laws stay on the books for years.
