Crossbows Get First Step Towards Hunting Approval

April 7, 2017

Hunters may soon be able to use a crossbow during archery season. The change was approved Wednesday by the Illinois House.

Red Bud Republican Jerry Costello says that allowing their use may get a diversity of hunters out for archery season.

“Weather it’s younger people or sometimes a lot of women who like to hunt have a problem pulling the 40 pounds of a long bow, so therefore that’s an issue for them to hunt. Crossbow allows them to get out in the field and hunt as well.”

The measure now heads to the full Senate for consideration.
