Anyone know why its illegal to hunt with crossbows? Obviously because the laws says so.....but with Bows, Muzzle loaders/black powder, Rifles, Handguns legal, whats the big deal with crossbows? I dont have one, but I just dont get it.
It all depends on the State you are in. For example, in Oregon, bowhunting is banned. I live in California, and happily, it is not restricted to bow hunting. I always search for new places to hunt with my bow on archerytopic.com. I have been using the bow since I was a child. I have been to multiple shooting contests and multiple shooting ranges, but nothing makes me enjoy more shooting from the bow than going hunting. Most of all, I like that it is quite, and it is easy to create ambushes on the animals.
