|LD 27||An Act To Allow the Use of a Crossbow for a Limited Duration during the Archery Season on Deer and the Fall Season on Wild Turkey||Status: Referred to Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee, Amended by Committee amendment H-147, Enacted, Signed into law May 14, 2019|
This bill allows crossbows to be used during the regular archery-only deer hunting season.
This amendment replaces the bill and the title. For a period of 3 years, beginning in 2020, it allows a person, in accordance with rules adopted by the Commissioner of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, to hunt deer with a crossbow during the open archery season on deer and the fall open season on hunting wild turkey. It specifies that a person using a crossbow during the open archery season may not harvest an antlerless deer unless that person possesses an antlerless deer permit. It also clarifies that, outside of this limited time period, the use of a crossbow to hunt wild turkey is allowed only during the spring open season on hunting wild turkey. Lastly, it requires the commissioner to submit a report to the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over inland fisheries and wildlife matters that includes a recommendation on whether to continue to permit the use of a crossbow during the regular archery season and the fall open season on hunting wild turkey and whether the commissioner allowed the use of a crossbow during a special archery season on deer and, if so, whether the use should continue to be permitted. The committee may report out a bill based on the report.
