Crossbows may be used to hunt any game species during any open
season where a vertical bow may be used (excluding waterfowl and
certain furbearers). Crossbows can now be used during the entire
deer bow season in all counties. The Crossbow Permit for
disabled hunters is no longer needed. The definition of ‘bow’
now includes vertical bows (compound, recurve or straight limb
bows) and crossbows.
