Crossbows now legal in NY

Recommended Posts

last season was the 2nd year that crossbows were legal during the entire archery season. There wasn't an increase in the number of deer taken during the archery season. I wasn't for it at first but after getting one I have enjoyed hunting with the crossbow and it gives me more hunting opportunities with my kids since they are not strong enough to pull back a legal bow.

First I've heard of a safety course for crossbows. I suppose they added it to the regular safety classes but not for those of us with a license. I allowed my 12 year old son to use the muzzleloader and shotgun in the stand on his own, but insist on being next to him with the crossbow. I love the double safety and forearm guard on my Tenpoint, but still feel it's to high a risk for a non-experienced user or kid to lose a thumb without supervision. This year he got to hunt alone and in a tree stand. Maybe next year I'll add the crossbow.
