huntnh, in Vermont we're not allowed to carry Any firearm (rifle, pistol or shotgun) while bowhunting.
Our only means to end a deers suffering is by knife.
I always thought the same as you and wondered why doesn't Vermont let the bow hunters at least carry a pistol?
I guess they're just concerned that some hunters might use the firearm instead of their bow to shoot the deer.
the following is the Vermont rule

* No person taking deer with a bow and arrow or crossbow (special permit required)
may possess a firearm and no deer may be taken
by firearms during the archery season.
