I don’t see a lot about crossbow hunting. They look like a hybrid between rifle and archery tools to me. And I can see the poetential for silent hunting near homes, etc. where hunting is allowed but you don't want to disturb the neighbors.
Up until this coming season New York only allowed crossbows for use by handicap hunters who could not draw a traditional bow. But as of this coming season it will be legal for any hunter in New York state to use a cross bow.
The bad news is that it is NOT allowed in the archery only season. The crossbow has to be used in the regular (i.e. firearm) season. I still think it’s a step in the right direction though.
What is the effective range of a crossbow?
What would a reasonable price be for a hunting crossbow?
What's the right term for the ammunition for them? Bolt? Quarrel? Arrow?
Thanks for any info! I don't even know what I don't know.
