An upper-limb disability is a permanent loss of the use of fingers, hand, or arm in a manner that renders the person incapable of using a longbow, compound bow, or recurved bow.

  • the crossbow has a mechanical safety; and
  • the crossbow stock is not less than 25 inches in length.

 Projectiles (Arrows and Crossbow Bolts):

  • While hunting game animals and game birds, a projectile may not be poisoned, drugged, or explosive.
  • When used to hunt turkey and all game animals other than squirrels, a projectile must be equipped with a broadhead hunting point that is at least 7/8-inch in width (upon impact) and has a minimum of two cutting edges.
