Pennsylvania GC Votes to Restrict Use of Crossbows

The hunting regulations are already out with crossbows aproved for upcoming deer and bear archery seasons. This is going to be a mess!
I didn't get a muzzleloader stamp this year because the new rules dont allow crossbows during muzzleloader season. Under the old rules they were allowed.

muzzleloader and crossbow

I stand corrected I just looked it up you cannot use the crossbow during the early or late seasons but If you add an archery stamp you can use the crossbow during the early season overlap with muzzleloader
