Re: [SCA-Archery] Mundane Laws and Crossbows
- I don't shoot crossbow, so I don't know a lot about it... but at my
favorite local clubs here in Massachusetts crossbows are welcome. The
mundane archery organization I belong to has divisions for crossbow
shooters and information on them.
The list of officers is from all over this country. I did have problems
finding any information on the legality of using this equipment for either
target or hunting in this state. I assume it is legal for target or the
club owners would know about it. The hunting laws say no "bows drawn by
mechanical Means". I have been told that includes crossbows. I have been
on the line at mundane shoots in Mass, Ohio and Michigan with crossbowman.
That is all the info I have on it. I am sure there are others which know
