If it's like a gun why can't you use it on the rifle hunt? Or can you

The only mention of "crossbow" in the proc is on page 8 indicating that the disabled may use them and on page 42 about how it is not legal to use as archery equipment. However, I am under the same understanding that they may not be used during any hunt either except for the disabled exception for archery.

I'm curious as to why you would want to use one. I'm not trying to be a jerk, just curious.

because they shoot very fast and hit very hard so the poor people using bows have to compete with you

I was just wondering why they are illegal even for the rifle.

Thanks

From what I've seen they are about the same speed as a compound and shoot a smaller arrow. So it would have less kinetic energy.

idk how much a bow has but a xbow hits with almost 100 ftpounds of energy, and x bow targets are a lot more dense so that the bolt dont go through
