Updated as of 4/6/2020 - “A muzzleloader is defined as a single barrel, single shot firearm (40 caliber or greater) that can only be loaded from the muzzle. Only one deer may be taken using a muzzleloader or crossbow with the firearm tag during the muzzleloader season. No person shall have in possession, while taking deer during the muzzleloader season, more than one muzzleloading rifle or one muzzleloading handgun. In NH a muzzleloader is defined as a firearm—therefore a felon may not possess a muzzleloader."
