The State of Illinois lifted restrictions on the use of crossbows during deer and turkey archery seasons last week.
The Chicago Tribune reports the Illinois Department of of Natural Resources previously allowed crossbows during archery season for hunters 62 years of age or older and people with disabilities.
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, a part time resident of Paradise Valley, signed the bill into law and the restrictions will be repealed for this hunting season.
Crossbow use in Montana is restricted to the general hunting season. Past efforts to legalize the use of crossbows during archery season failed but could the weapons be embraced in coming years?
