Default Approved expansion of certain rifles in shotgun zone

Anyone know anything about this, I have googled it and can't find crap about it?

https://mucc.org/approved-expansion-...-shotgun-zone/

Quote:
MUCC Member’s approved a policy resolution in 2010 requesting that MUCC urge the Natural Resources Commission to change the law regulating the “Shotgun zone” to allow use of rifles using straight-walled pistol cartridges during firearm deer season. HB 4283 sponsored by Rep. Matt Lori (R-Constantine) passed the House and passed out of Senate committee back in November 2013, but has not been taken up on the Senate floor.

Additionally, air gun enthusiasts worked to pass a resolution at MUCC’ s 2013 Annual Convention to support the use of larger bore air rifles for deer hunting in the Shotgun Zone.

MUCC staff and several members testified in support of these two issues at the NRC from January-June 2014 (and even before that), in advance of the regulation setting process for the 2014-2016 Deer Seasons.

On June 12, 2014, the NRC approved this change in hunting regulations!

Now called the “Limited Firearm Deer Zone”, the added firearms for deer hunting include:

A .35 caliber or larger rifle loaded with straight-walled cartridges with a minimum case length of 1.16 inches and a maximum case length of 1.80 inches.
A .35 caliber or larger air rifle or pistol charged only from an external high-compression power source such as an external hand pump, air tank, or air compressor.
Congrats are in order to Robert Tyler of Chief Okemos Sportsman’s Club and Don Benjamin and Dennis Sitzer of Ionia County Hunting and Fishing Club for bringing this to MUCC’s attention and seeing it through the sometimes long haul towards implementation!

Learn more about how to get involved first hand at our 2014 Conservation Leadership Training and Annual Convention, this week in Roscommon June 19-22!

That awkward moment when your .40 S&W is expected to stop a 350lb man but it is deemed unacceptable to hunt 200lb deer with.

From what I understand this is about the best option under the new rules.

I just picked up a 357 mag blackhawk. Would love a lever gun to match.

Think a 357 from a lever gun would drop a deer at 75 to 100 yards?

my dad being a gunsmith, I was able to shoot a ton of different guns as a boy.
He was not a lever gun guy, so its the one gun I never got to shoot.

Absolutely can't go wrong with the Winchester model 94.

**edit** I see they are only available in 30-30 win, 38-55 win and 450 marlin.
