same in ky if you have a disability, you can get a pass from fish and game to crossbow during the regular archery season, but for the rest there is a crossbow season.
i have been seeing more and more people picking up crossbows here because they dont like bow hunting and fish and game has cut back on the regular modern gun season so its push those who are tring to fill tags into other methods of harvesting.
