I have heard of some changes in the laws in PA about crossbows. They didn't come out and say they were going to allow them but it sounded in a way that they are possibly thinking of it. What do you PA boys think of it though if they allow it.[;)]

    During rifle season, yes.
    During archery, no.
    I think the way it is now, you are allowed to use them during rifle.
    I live in a special regulation area, and not only are you allowed to use crossbow during the rifle(shotgun) season, a fifty yard safety zone is required, as opposed to the 150 yard requirement when using a shotgun. I think it is great, and fits my personal situation perfectly. I can hunt my property during bow season(50 yard requirement), and now I can hunt the rifle season with a crossbow(50 yard requirement). Now all I have to do is get a crossbow.

    They had the final meeting to vote on using them during firearms season, and special zones around philly and pittsburg. I read an article in the paper about it.

    I THINK the meeting deal with allowing crossbows during ANY firearms season. This would mean that crossbows can be used during muzzleloader seasons, which overlap bowhunting seasons.
    Check out www.huntingpa.com . I am sure you can get the full scoop there.
