Hunting with a 22. LR in RI.

Im looking to get a Savage MK.II 22. LR Bolt Action Rilfe. I live in the state of Rhode Island. I was just wondering if there is anything I can hunt in the state of RI with a 22. LR Bolt Action.

Welcome to the site.  I don't

Welcome to the site.  I don't know their specific regulations, but in most states, you can use them for small game.  Most common things I see .22's used on are rabbits and squirrels.

Check the RI game laws, and also make sure to check local ordinances if you are somewhere within city or town limits.

I agree with Vermonster. You

I agree with Vermonster. You also need to check with the Rhode Island game and fish and see what it required for you to hunt. At the very least you might need to purchase a license of some kind and you may also be required to have a hunters safety course under your belt.

It isn't like the old days when you could just buy a rifle and a license and head out hunting.
