here in WI they made crossbows legal over 60 years old(i think that was the age) i think it's a good deal. i don't think they have as much energy as a compound, so i won't use one until i have to.
The age is 65 or disabled , a tool to help keep these hunters in the fall deer woods .

They are illegal in IL unless you have a special Doctors permit. I never had cared for them, but with the shoulder problems I have been fighting the last 2 years my interest is starting to peak.

Same in ND, you have to have a disability and doctors approval to use one, father in law uses one, so I have shot it a few times at the target, but hope to not use one for a long long time.

Was the same here in NC until last year - Now a crossbow is legal anytime there's a legal archery season.

This is a topic that I am still "Up in the Air" on and seem to change my tune when ever someone else gives me their opinion.  I didn't vote because none of the answers really sits with my feelings about them. I like the fact that they are another means of hunting to get more people involved in the outdoors and the more of that there is, the better chance of introducing people to hunting.   On the other hand I personally do not think they are really "archery" equipment, just my personal opinion, and should not be categorized as such for seasonal preferences.  I like the fact that they can give someone the option of continuing in "archery" that is disabled, or has had serious injury and not able to draw a regular bow.  But again don't consider it archery equipment.  See I just can't decide!!  ??? ##$%#1119

I like them and believe they ar ejust another tool for hunting- I don't believe they give you a bid advantage, they allow women and disabled or too old hunters to hunt. people who hate on them remind me of the traditional bow shooters busting on the new and improved compound bow years ago-
