Crossbows Now Legal During PA Archery Season

PA Board of Game Commission, Bear Hunting Magazine

Crossbows, with magnifying telescopic sights, are now legal for use in deer and bear archery seasons.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners have voted a second required time to remove the prohibition on magnifying scopes on crossbows they had passed earlier this year as part of their initial legalization of crossbows.

One commissioner however, who is a self-described "avid archer," has consistently voted against legalization of crossbow use in the archery hunting seasons did announce his plan to attempt to limit crossbow use.
