A felon cannot own a firearm. However, there are other types of weapons used for hunting that they can possess. Muzzleloaders, crossbows and knives are among those weapons they can own. Further, while a felon may not possess a gun that uses any type of gun powder to power its shot, pellet rifles are allowed since they are a pneumatic weapon.
