It would be great if you could use Archery, Muzzleloader, centerfire rifles, and single shots during black powder season.
It is not about taking the game with just one shot. It is about taking the game at a bigger disadvantage than todays modern super cartridges that are very accurate. The HAM (handgun, Archery, Muzzleloader) hunts we have in AZ are typically during the rut which increases the opportunity to bag a big animal. If game and fish allowed modern rifles on these hunts the success rates would be very high and the animal populations would suffer.

Many firearm innovations are tied to the inception of the HAM hunts. For example, super accurate pistols like the Thompson contender, and the new ultra modern ultra accurate muzzle loaders. Technology is also producing very accuarate and deadly bows. These innovations are just mans marvelous ways of making the best of the situation. We are truely amazing, but sometimes we ignore the spirit of the law and focus on the details.
