Also the problem is you would be jeopardizing his situation he could easily go back to jail of prison. And both of you would be rolling the dice! Since you have knowledge if his restrictions. Certainly would not want either of you getting into a problem. My heart goes out for you because the dad and son thing is good! I have a good friend that is in the same boat! In fact he had to sell his entire 60 gun collection and his wife can not even have a gun belonging to her in the house. His was a non violent crime where he had knowledge of a situation that he had no control over but was charged with conspiracy because when he saw an e-mail he did not report it to the authorities. It was not even in his area of responsibility at work! But never the less he is under the same restrictions you are speaking about!

Don't even chance it. If you want to mend fences, there are better and more legal ways than hunting. BP is not regulated by the powers that be, but if you have anything other than BP and you are caught with him even looking at your gun...bad news. Try explaining that you did not know he was a felon.

Fishing, camping, frog gigging...all better bonding prospects than maybe him being sent to prison again and you having to defend yourself for abetting. If you bow hunt with him, make sure all tags are legal and done correctly before being caught with a dead regulated animal and no tag. Keep in mind that in most states the game warden has more power than your regular state police.

The game warden has more power than the state police in every state. Due to duck stamps and other federal migratory bird laws the Game Warden is a federal agent.

Many people don't know this! Luckily, most game wardens are friendly IF you are not committing a felony. I have had game wardens pop out of the woods in the most strangest places, too, but never a problem.

As far as felons and firearms, this is a very black-and-white issue. NEVER allow a felon near your firearms (like having him in your house if you don't have a safe) and don't ever put a weapon in his hands! You risk you becoming a felon and both of you getting further jail time.

It sounds cruel, but this is the exact scenario anti-gunners use to turn good people into criminals. Find ANYTHING to do that doesn't involve ANY weapon; Better safe than sorry for borh of you!
