Hunting WMAS

Can someone please answer this question for me. If the lw&f book says small game same as outside does that mean i can hunt small game on WMAs during the deer bow season. Some hunters told me no and some said yes. I understand deer hunters don't want all that noise in the woods but i just want the right answer. Thanks for the info.
Get you some squirrels
The regulation say what they mean, same as outside means exactly that. Some WMAs (but not all) are closed to small game hunting for either sex rifle, but not bow season. If you hunt public land for deer you should plan on occasional appearances by small game hunters.
if it says same as outside, then it is open same as outside, certain wma-s state specifically if it is bow hunting only, ''all other hunting closed'' and other have small game closed on either sex rifle hunts
