Rumor has it both houses passed a bill to allow crossbow hunting to coincide with the archery season. Waiting on governors signature. We shall see.

I sure hope they do , my daughter in law loves to bowhunt ,but she can't draw much poundage, but she seems to get a deer every year, but she wants a crossbow so she don't have to be so selective on distance, Her and my son come here to Missouri every year to hunt and I let her use my crossbow and she loves it .. :wink:

I did hear they were going to take out weight restrictions, not sure if it made it into this bill, I assume so
