Is it legal to hunt with a cross bow?

I would like to find out if it is legal first of all and then two if it is, what are the regulations for the hunt?

Answer

You can hunt with a crossbow during an any-weapon season but not during an archery-only season unless you qualify for and have a handicapped archery permit.  That permit is posted on our website in the "Licenses" section under forms.
