Unlike July’s tax-free holiday for back-to-school items and clothing, this holiday does not have a price limit on items or purchases. Any eligible item on the state’s list is tax-free.

The holiday began Friday at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday at midnight.

Some of the tax-free items are bullets and shotgun shells, muzzle-loader gunpowder, arrows, bow fishing accessories, firearm parts, safety equipment and scopes for bows, cases designed specifically for firearms and archery equipment.

Some of the items not included are reloading supplies, BB and paintball guns, hats and gloves, animal feed, binoculars, boats, cameras, calls, knives and tree stands.
