Rauner Signs Bill Allowing Use of Crossbows For Archery Hunting Season

If you’re gearing up for hunting season, you can have a new weapon in your arsenal this year.

Governor Bruce Rauner has signed a bill to allow the use of crossbows during archery hunting season.

Previously, crossbows were prohibited except for senior citizens, people with disabilities and some youth hunters… although all hunters were allowed to use them late in the archery season.

Now all hunters can use crossbows from the start of archery season for deer or turkey when it gets underway on October 1st .
