I am confused as to what is the legal weapon from Nov 9-18 on private land? I have read and asked and have been told it must be a single shot, exposed hammer, 35, 444, etc and I have also been told that you can shoot any long rifle ? Which is right? thanks
If some animals are good at hunting and others are suitable for hunting, then the Gods must clearly smile on hunting.

My understanding is that the early primitive weapon season (Nov 7-18) is the only one that you have to use a "primitive" weapon (i.e; smoke pole or 45/70, 35 Whelen, 444). This is private land only & doe only. The other 2 primitive weapon seasons are "weapon of choice" (i.e; your regular deer rifle), but you must have a primitive weapon license.
Hope this helps. If its wrong, someone will correct me.

That's my understanding also. Was same way last year too.
