Is it Even Legal to Hunt With A Crossbow?

Bob Rogers

Weekend, September 22-23, 2018 – The answer, measurably, is “yes.” The caveats are in the how, when, and mostly, the where. But before we get to that, it’s important to note that before special seasons for bowhunters were granted, rifle hunters were – literally – up In arms and one could hear the screams to high heaven (if one were lucky enough to have gotten that far, of course). But a funny thing happened on the way to the forest; gun hunters then realized that they could extend their hunting seasons by taking up the bow and accepting (easily) the concept of an extended hunting season. In our part of Wyoming, for example, “traditional” rifle hunting season in the Big Horns begin October 15 with an archery season set for a month earlier. Eventually, even that date was extended to September 1; and now archery hunters have a full month to fill a tag and, if they don’t, they can switch to rifles two weeks later. Not all hunt areas in the state have the same dates so it’s up to hunters to keep a copy of hunting regulations at hand.

But just as fly fishers have learned to co-exist with spincasters, Trad (traditional, including recurve) bowhunters learned to give quarter to compound bow hunters.  Eventually, we all came to accept each other’s hunting methods – “we” meaning “mostly” – and in more recent times, even crossbows became acceptable tools for hunting. So, “yes,” it is legal to hunt with a crossbow but some states or areas of states may have limits.  If you’ve been thinking about taking up the crossbow, to make your life easier you can go here to learn all the angles of hunting with crossbows in your state.
